Written by a leading neuroscientist, mind scientists from around the world have consistently acclaimed this work as one of the best books on hypnosis ever written for the non-professional. It is the result of decades of research with literally thousands of people who volunteered for experiments, helped with logistics and data collection and analysis, and participated in numerous other ways.
A clinician, researcher and college teacher, Henderson has pioneered an approach to personal improvement dynamics that works where other methods fail.
Especially noteworthy is Henderson's unique work, based on his extensive research, in the area of autoquestioning. This is part of the secret to why his method is so effective for people of all ages and walks of life.
Autoquestioning is a necessary step for mental alignment because success at anything—losing weight, quitting smoking, memory improvement, controlling things like shyness or fear, in fact anything that depends on a person's own efforts—always requires subconscious agreement with the conscious goal.
Suggestions formulated in agreement with personal knowledge from autoquestioning produce dramatic, speedy results that often could not be achieved by any other means.
The subconscious is the most powerful part of the mind. Trying to force significant achievement or change through uninformed suggestions, affirmations, or willpower ultimately results in failure most of the time. This method takes the guesswork out of change and achievement and puts your efforts on a sound, logical, scientific footing.
