There are a lot of things to love about The Thin Book.
The first is that it is, literally, a thin book. It is 108 pages of double spaced type. Personally, I believe most books, and most certainly those in the mental health field, are much too long. The Thin Book sets a great example of what is possible.
Another reason to love The Thin Book is the simplicity of its organization. It is a terrific book, and that, it seems, was Brickman's intention. He has given us fourteen chapters, each of which is a well-developed trance script addressing the subconscious meaning of a specific weight loss challenge. Some of these scripts, such as "Compulsive Eating as a Defense Against Anxiety," "Craving Fruit and Vegetables," or "Late Evening Eating," I might expect to see in a book for weight management.
To my delight, Brickman goes beyond the expected by offering scripts on, "Being Overweight as an Expression of Passivity and Hostility," "Slowing Down the Act of Eating," "Exercising," "Feeling Deprived After a Successful Effort," and "Lacking Resolve when Eating Away From Home."
The book is also unique in that the only writing Brickman presents other than the well-constructed and structured scripts is a 3-page preface. Here he describes himself as a "specialist in weight management." He states, "The scripts use positive suggestions or positive hypnosis in the form of metaphors, analogies, empathy and confrontation that contradict the effects of the unconscious mind." This description offers an accurate portrayal of his work, but understates the sensitivity and richness of his work.

This I would have to say is a must read book for all of you out there who are denying one simple fact: Food isn't the culprit. How much you learn to use self-control and the self-esteem derived from it will govern the direction of your path. I got tired of going backwards all the time. This book has pointed me in the right direction. It points out that we should respect, celebrate food. WE should treat food as we would a good friend who we can count on. Well, I made friends with this book and I respect the author, Hal Brickman for writing a weight-management book that I have not seen the like of before. Instead of being preachy it's down-to-earth and uses words that people can understand. It uses ideas that make sense and are hard to forget, even though there is a little devil in me that sometimes says "go back." Go back and get that instant plesure from eating all I want when I want. But, I'm clearer about the consequences now. The book has taught me to slow down and think, breathe, imagine, plan, hesitate. That's all it takes to my amazement. Buying time. I see that now. By delaying that lunge to the wrong foods, I move closer to who I really am and how I really should look and care for my self. Wow! I'm so grateful.

If you're like me overweight, feeling frustrated stuck and fed up-THERE IS HOPE. It's called THE THIN BOOK. It is a true jewel. I found it to be so inspiring, while providing me with original suggestions to help me monitor and modulate the way I eat. Best of all, it has worked for me. It also worked for my husband, who was forty five pounds over-weight- even though it took two weeks to convince him to try reading the book. The THIN BOOK isn't about dieting. It's about helping you re-program that voice in your inner-mind that says 'yes" to foods it should be more often saying 'no' too, This book re-programs your unconscious mind so that you start craving salads, fruit, water etc. Unbelieveably but it actually works. I doubted it at first. You probably do too. But I'm glad I let myself move past my doubt into action. Every so often, I reread passages from the book to get a tune-up when I feel that rebellious perhaps teenager in me trying to talk me into my old binging eating habits. If you haven't guessed by now, I love this book. It's also written by a writer whose message is clear, creative and artfully persuasive.

After having read this ground-breaking book, I am developing healthy eating habits as a way of life. No structured program I've been on in the past twenty years (and I have been on more than many) has done for me what this book has.
THE THIN BOOK is also one of the most brilliantly written prose I have read in ages. It is colorful, powerful, highly informative and though extremely serious, a joy to read.
In addition, I know of no other book on hypnosis that is soley devoted to weight-management. It is a classic book, already, because it's one I will return to and reinforce and sustain the progress I've made.
The book is full of vivid imagery that irresistably lingers in my mind. It manages to offset my urge to overeat.
My eating choices have become wiser, more balanced. The book has taught me to slow down my eating (I used to eat on the run or sit down and inhale my food) which has led to a new founded respect and appreciation for the the eating experience.
Eating has now become something I look forward to, as I'm gaining confidence in my self-control. I'm also developing respect and appreciation for the foods I eat. I no longer take them for granted. I love to look at the contrasting colors, nuances of taste, variety of textures and aromas.
The book is comprised of the most effective trances this acclaimed clinician has used in his several decades of specializing in weight-management.
I'm so excited about the book that I have ordered many copies as gifts to friends and family. This book is the best present I can give to someone I care about.
Thank you, Hal Brickman, you have made my life more fulfilling.
