From the foreword:
With few exceptions, the published data available on hypnotism is either too weighty with scientific theory, if a serious work, or it contains too much fakery, if stage hypnotic demonstrations are being described. It is this author's purpose to condense the latest and best methods and ideas into easy understandable language, so that the lay person may have before him an easy-to-follow, compact summary of the art.

For a hypnotism rookie like me, this was a good primer with essential fundamentals. Although some parts seem dated, I could learn what's worth many times the small asking price.
