This is the classic work on waking hypnosis, the publication that inspired recent writings by Kross, Enriquez, Knepper, and others. Meyer describes, in considerable detail (including scripts) the act originally developed by Professor George Lyman, and later performed by Meyer himself. Using no props, no preparation, no pre-show, and no confederates of any kind, this is a complete 45–60 minute act in itself, and plays to the largest audiences. Not recommended for beginners in mentalism, as it does require mature presentation skills. This is a highly-sought-after manuscript on "the real thing" and only recommended for the serious performer.
