the holy grail Feb. 9 2007
By I. S. Leslie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am shocked to find only one review of this book.I was a smoker of 40 years standing and a fully paid up ADDICT and expert at giving up smoking (and failing).The way this book looks at addiction(or lack of) is the trick and one that worked for me and required the bare minimum of will power (thankfully 'cause i didn't have much).

I succeeded beyond my wildest dreams---i know just because it worked for me does not guarrantee it will work for everyone----but it is not expensive and it truly is a NEW WAY OF QUITTING and worth the price of the book.
Interesting Info But Weak Application Oct. 3 2012
By Tertullian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book deals with some interesting scientific information about smoking that I never seen any where else. Neil Casey shows how the pleasure from smoking is a mirage, and the only stress you relieve is synthetic, caused by the previous cigarette. His approach has some similarities to Allen Carr's method. To me the weakness of the book is the ending , which relies on visualization as a means to quitting smoking. This method would seem to be a real struggle for those who are more verbal rather than visual in their approach. It's almost a mind over matter idea. Recommended for the unique scientific info, though the weak ending is a weakness of the book.

Good Book--But I Do Have a Bone to Pick March 26 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A fellow hypnotist recommended this book because it takes an interesting view of smoking and smoking cessation, and I must admit that those insights have helped me in my practice.

The problem I have with this book is that the author rags on hypnosis, saying that it's a waste of money. He later writes that he won't be using hypnosis to help people quit smoking, because it's not needed.

The truth is, he uses hypnotic techniques throughout the book. It's a masterpiece of building expectation and applying metaphor. His approach culminates with directing the reader through a series of visualizations that use metaphor and future pacing to communicate the message to the unconscious mind--that's self-hypnosis, plain and simple.

Perhaps Casey doesn't realize what he's doing, or perhaps he's trying to avoid the wrongful stigma that hypnosis carries with the uninformed. In any case, he's proven Hazlerig's Law once again: "The more someone rails against hypnosis, the greater the chance that they're using it."

That said, the book does contain methods that are effective in helping some smokers to quit.
