If you already own Trancework (4th Ed), then you probably won’t want to purchase this new 2nd edition of Essentials of Hypnosis. It’s a condensed version of Trancework, for all those who don’t want to be weighed down with all the data and references included in Trancework. The book really strives to live up to its name, Essentials of Hypnosis.
