While some of the material is dated, much of it stands the test of time. If it's basic information about self-hypnosis you want while staying on a budget(e.g. free on Kindle and 6.99 for the paperback), this is a great place to start. There is some practical "how to" in it; certainly enough to start experimenting.
Melvin Powers, for those of us old enough to know, put out a LOT of very interesting books and material through his press, Wilshire Book Company. His other books on hypnosis included Advanced Techniques of Hypnosis, and he's one of the few authors who mention the induction of hypnosis through the use of mesmerism (using the energy in one's gaze). It may sound like hooey to some folks, but I predict that one day it'll make a comeback. What's old will become new again--no doubt under a term someone creates to make it more palatable for a modern audience.
Melvin Powers has contributed to the current popularity of hypnosis and self hypnosis books. Of that, there is no doubt in my mind. If you are a collector of hypnosis books (like I am), then A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO SELF HYPNOSIS is a must-have. It's a classic and for that reason, and a few others, I have given it FIVE STARS.
I downloaded this book while doing research for a book I am writing with elements of the same topic. While some of my knowledge was validated in this book, it didn’t offer me anything I didn’t know. Not enough was mentioned about the process itself. Better explanatory examples should have been given for various inductions and also how to leave the hypnotic state.
A lot of information is available about hypnosis today, much more than when this book was written. Melvin Powers used to be one of the most influential people regarding hypnosis. If this book was to be republished, it would have been wise to update much of the information or at least include discussions of how hypnotism has changed or been accepted or rejected, through the years. This is a book for beginners curious about hypnosis, but still, the vast knowledge of this subject has changed and more upgraded information can be found.
This book likely reflects the state of the art in commercial hypnotism in 1961 when the book was published, and though dated, it is not useless. You can figure out how to put yourself into a trance from the material in the book, and emplace autosuggestions, and hey, it's free!
