HIDDEN DEPTHS Robin Waterfield HIDDEN DEPTHS The Story of Hypnosis MACMILLAN Published in 2003 by Brunner-Routledge 29 West 35th Street New York, NY 10001. This book tells the story of hypnotism, a practice which has attracted the most extravagant praise and the most acidic vitriol for at least 200 years. This book is a work of reportage about something which, if even half the claims made for it are true, deserves the attention of medical science to a far greater degree than it has yet received.

Hidden Depths is a history of hypnotism in the Western world from speculative discussion of its use in the ancient world through its employment for self improvement in the modern era. It’s a bold undertaking. For one thing, hypnotism as we know it today given the insight of modern science is a relatively new phenomenon. The chapter on Mesmer is fascinating. Waterfield does an excellent job offering a variety of perspectives although he does offer his opinions at times. I found this to a be a very balanced view of hypnosis covering it from a variety of angles.

The Story of Hypnosis. In addition to telling the story of hypnosis and the characters who crop up along the way, there will be two main sub-themes in the book: first, what hypnosis can teach us about the powers and further reaches of the human mind; second, the degree to which hypnotic techniques have become absorbed in and reflect everyday culture.

The theory underlying the supposed connection between hypnosis and paranormal feats is not in itself implausible side world and allowed.

Phil Baker looks deep into Hidden Depths by Robin Waterfield - a study of hypnosis

Phil Baker looks deep into Hidden Depths by Robin Waterfield - a study of hypnosis. It was Anton Mesmer who got "mesmerism" off the ground in the 18th century, leading his patients into convulsions caused - or so he believed - by magnetism.

In Hidden Depths, Robin Waterfield explores the fascinating world of hypnosis, tracing the history of this often misunderstood craft beginning with a passage in the book of Genesis, and continuing through his own personal experiences today

In Hidden Depths, Robin Waterfield explores the fascinating world of hypnosis, tracing the history of this often misunderstood craft beginning with a passage in the book of Genesis, and continuing through his own personal experiences today. Waterfield uses the history and controversy surrounding the practice of hypnosis to gain insight into our behavior and psychology, and considers how hypnotic techniques have been absorbed into society through advertising, media and popular culture. Robin Waterfield's Hidden Depths: The Story of Hypnosis, is undoubtedly the most thorough.

With wit and verve Robin Waterfield brings the bizarre story of hypnotism to life. A lively mixture of popular history, science and psychology, Hidden Depths is the definitive work on hypnosis

With wit and verve Robin Waterfield brings the bizarre story of hypnotism to life. A lively mixture of popular history, science and psychology, Hidden Depths is the definitive work on hypnosis. From its origins as animal magnetism, as practised by Franz Anton Mesmer, to its modern day use as a health cure and a form of entertainment, hypnosis encompasses many different facets of humanity. Always controversial, the outlandish claims that its zealous believers make are only matched in intensity by the howls of derision that they provoke from sceptics.

With wit and verve Robin Waterfield brings the bizarre story of hypnotism to life. A lively mixture of popular history science and psychology, Hidden Depths is the definitive work on hypnosisFrom its origins as animal magnetism, as practised by Franz Anton Mesmer, to its modern day use as a health cure and a form of entertainment, hypnosis encompasses many different facets of humanity. Always controversial, the outlandish claims that its zealous believers make are only matched in intensity by the howls of derision that they provoke from sceptics. Hypnotism exists on the periphery of the scientific community, much as it has since its inception. Robin Waterfield approaches the issues with an open mind, carefully stripping the fact from the fancy and the truth from the myth. And as he builds the comprehensive picture of this unusual art other issues are raised. The relationship, for example, between the predilections of society and the popularity of hypnosis.

This is a beautifully written book about a highly compelling subject. I've read it three times.

Incredibly informative! Reading this book transported me back to a world from a previous century - a world that I had not had any previous insight of - Mesmer and Mozart's world as it really was. The author writes in a well balanced and objective manner throughout.
The author dismissed the likelihood of hypnotism in the ancient world by systematically demonstrating that there is no reliable proof of it. He describes the development of hypnotism from its first genuinely recognisable origins (Mesmer) onwards. He never loses track of the fact that there are many things that might share similar effects - such as the "placebo effect" - but just makes it clear that if we say that all of those states are the same, then we ignore that there is a separate state of induction induced hypnotic trance.
I'm stunned by the insight into human nature given by this book - and the obvious fact that much of this is denied in our culture and has been suppressed since the famous "debunking" of Mesmer by Benjamin Franklin. It is very clear that Franklin threw out the baby with the bath water and I have to thank this terrific author for getting that message across so thoroughly. Highly recommended reading.

This is a very thorough, well organized, superbly researched and intelligently written book on the history of hypnotism. I recommend it to all of my hypnotherapy students and feel it should be required reading for anyone with a serious hypnosis practice.

hidden depths is an absorbing and fascinating history of hypnosis --it's background, high and lows and its influence in the birth of psychology. highly recommended.

note this is a history of hypnosis, not a history of trance, therefore the main stream is caught with the rise of mesmerism.
