Publisher's Summary

This audiobook is about hypnosis and how to use it effectively. It will teach you what hypnosis is and how to hypnotize both individuals and groups of people anytime and anywhere you choose. No prior experience of hypnosis is required to understand and apply the knowledge in this book. The techniques are deceptively simple yet incredibly powerful. They are entirely practical and have been road tested over many years, with thousands of people.

This seminal book is renowned by hypnotists around the world, whether they are hobbyists or professionals.

The author is a vastly experienced hypnotist, hypnotherapist, and trainer. Hearing him narrate his own work really brings the techniques to life. You get to hear the nuances of pace, tone, and attitude that will improve your delivery.

Originally written in 2007, this is the updated edition from 2016. Each section of the book has been revisited; scripting improved and new material added.

The techniques in this book are simple, direct, and can be learned without any prior knowledge of hypnosis. They can be applied effectively in a real-world setting, well out of the comfort zone of the therapy room and without the luxury of a stage full of expectant subjects. They are entirely impromptu.

Real Deal

This is the resource I initially used in learning to become a hypnotist. I find it just as useful today as when I first read it years ago. The audio version is even better than the text. You get to hear Ant's tonalities, his pacing, his enthusiasm and expertise. I can't recommend this enough.

Incredible Audio Book... However...

If you could sum up Reality Is Plastic: The Art of Impromptu Hypnosis in three words, what would they be?

Give me more...

What was one of the most memorable moments of Reality Is Plastic: The Art of Impromptu Hypnosis?

I found the entire book to be intriguing. If you are or have been considering becoming a student of hypnosis this book is for you.

What does Anthony Jacquin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Having the ability to hear Anthony's voice gives you a real sense how he performs his craft.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was moved when Anthony started explaining rapid inductions. I was able to trance family and friends a lot faster using his strategies.

Wish I had this book years ago!<br />

Reluctant to ever say, "I loved it," but I did enjoy it considerably! To have the author narrate the book, gives a unique perspective as to how the setups and inductions should be performed.

I would recommend this book, but I would prefer to keep it a secret for myself!

Best material on performing hypnosis!

Anthony is an amazing hypnotist and teacher. I’m so happy this book was narrated by Anthony. He made it very easy for me to understand and I enjoyed this read/listen very much. If you are interested and hypnosis at all, then you need to listen/read this book.

Street Hypnosis Master Instruction

A must for anyone who wants to perform or simply begin to understand the art of street impromptu hypnosis. Anthony breaks it down masterfully. Listening to him read his own book is wonderful. I’ve gotten much more out of listening to this audio book than I got out of the written work. Anthony really has put together a classic for anyone interested in the mind, persuasion and hypnosis.

great primer for learning hypnosis and techniques

I think I have another course by this author which goes further in depth witb more examples and scripts, but this version is great to hear on the road while driving (you won't fall asleep, lol) covers all the basics and primes you to understand how to do hypnosis. recommended!

very easy and informative listen

I've read many books on hypnosis and, until now, I've always been left feeling overwhelmed with knowledge but a total lack of confidence that I'd ever be able to do it. Listening to Anthony's voice, actually saying inductions, deepening them etc. gave me a different picture altogether.

He speaks in such an easy, down-to-earth way and yet manages to convey such confidence that what he is saying is bound to work. He's increased my confidence and I can't wait to find someone to practise on!

If you want to be a hypnotherapist you will need other books and resources to continue your education. However, I doubt if you will find a better resource than this to give you the confidence to know that you can 'DO' hypnosis! If you can't 'DO' it there's not much point in carrying on.

Thank you Anthony, you've written a masterpiece and you read it so well!

There are a lot of books on hypnosis, but this audiobook takes it to a whole new level.

The whole book is a great listen/ read from cover to cover.

Any additional comments?

If you are interested in impromptu hypnosis and want to learn from one of the best at a ridiculously low price, then get this book.

Easy listening

Really enjoyed listening to this, learned so much and intend to listen to it again. It all makes so much sense and I actually felt confident in my own ability as a Hypnotherapist and my ability to do impromptu demonstrations of my ability as a Hypnotist, especially at family/friend gatherings.

OK

book aimed more at Street or pub hypnosis, so not for people wanting to learn about hypnotherapy
