At last, the missing piece of the dysfunctional puzzle. It is not enough to understand or even relive our childhood traumas. Dr. Wolinsky shows us how we continue to recreate those traumas in our adult lives and how to stop creating them.

I think this book is well written and worth reading. Wolinsky has an interesting habit of publishing books that are works in progress, and this one seems like a more complete work than others of his.

Brilliant book. If you are a practitioner of hypnosis or a lover of the field then this book is a must add to the collection. I couldn't put this book down. I absolutely loved it. Stephen Wolinsky's premise that we need to de-trance from the limited trance states in which we find ourselves everyday is a whole new way of thinking about human behaviour and hypnosis.

One of the best books explaining the dysfunction in children/family relationships. We all are hypnotised by our parents and then continue in those childhood trances and repeat the dramas through our own replaying of those hypnotic scenes. Very enlightening. I have read very widely and this is one of the best.
