Abstract:

"The objective of this book is to try and give an easily comprehensible account of the development and present status of hypnotism, for the benefit of physicians as well as of lawyers and of the interested public; and as the author's personal experience in the matter is as yet too small, he has collected from the best and latest authorities such facts as to him seemed surest, most reliable, and most instructive. The author has especially illustrated the dark sides of hypnotism, and the many injurious effects upon the physical and psychic life of man, which may result from the abuse of it: and he would strongly advise those who have not had a medical education, not to meddle with this agent so dangerous and so difficult to control. This second edition adds a special chapter on the abuse and the dangers of hypnotism, so as still more to emphasize the author's previously expressed warning to the public against a careless trifling with this force"--Preface.
