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.

    Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.

    "I guess you have to try it to see if it works"

    I must admit that I find the premise for this book hard to believe but if it can be done, it could be useful. Helping people with mental issues is the benefit with hypnosis, such as overcoming anxiety but to get free drinks at the bar I think is a bit underhanded. Never less you can choose to use these powers; if this stuff works, for good or badness. I think if you can, then do your homework and make sure you are not creating a monster of silly notions.
    Anthony Jacquin takes a little to get use to as the narrator and does not sound like the typical hypnotist but once over this hurdle he is fine. I did drift off from time to time (no I was not hypnotised) and this book you need to concentrate on, so don't listen to it in the car whilst driving. Find a friend or like minded individual to practice with is my suggestion to make this book truly useful.

    "I thought it was something different"

    From the title I thought it would be about philosophy and all the different ways you could see a reality. It turned out to be a list of routines only useful if you are really into hypnosis. There is not much theory, just a bunch of routines that you are gonna forget id you don't use every day.

    "Some good information but major ethical issues"

    "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!

    "The best introduction to Street Hypnosis"
    What did you like most about Reality Is Plastic: The Art of Impromptu Hypnosis?

    Its easy to follow , with clear concise instructions on the set up, set pieces and inductions necessary to hypnotise someone.


    What other book might you compare Reality Is Plastic: The Art of Impromptu Hypnosis to, and why?

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


    Which character – as performed by Anthony Jacquin – was your favourite?

    Anthony reads the book well. All the nuances of the inductions are explained easily and its great that many scripts are read out at the end of the book.


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

    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.<br/>I bought the original book many years ago and it has been updated and improved upon.<br/><br/>You will not be disappointed with the purchase.<br/>

    "OK"

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