Publisher's Summary

In this issue of Scientific American, "You Will Buy This Magazine: Shattering Myths About Hypnosis." Often denigrated as fakery, hypnosis has genuine therapeutic uses, especially for pain control. Michael R. Nash goes beyond the pocket watch in "The Truth and the Hype of Hypnosis." Also, the British Flying Saucer Bureau closes up shop, as Steve Mirsky reports in "Out of This World." Thomas Sterling investigates "How to Build a Supercomputer." Plus, a report on human height hitting its head on the genetic ceiling, halting photons pave the way for quantum computing and desktop black holes, finding snipers by sound, and more.
