Excerpt from Hypnotism: Its Facts, Theories and Related Phenomena; With Explanatory Anecdotes, Descriptions and Reminiscences
Many of my friends have often urged me to publish my experiences and reminiscences in the field of Hypnotism. In answer to this demand I herewith present this work to the public.
On account of the justified curiosity and great interest aroused by these still mysterious phenomena, I believe that this book will be of service to all interested in Hypnotism. The burning questions of Hypnotism and its related phenomena, with all their mysticism and perplexity of character, are exciting much attention and calling for explanations among enlightened and thinking men and women the world over.
I have done my best to explain, in as clear and significant a manner as I can, everything connected with the phenomena mentioned.
Furthermore, I have, to the best of my ability, endeavored to show the relation of Hypnotism to society - its significance morally and legally; its importance as a factor in medical science - as a new and effective method of cure. I h0pe sincerely to have met with some degree of success. If the reader finds matter not only for ephemeral interest, but also explanations of hitherto more or less unexplained questions, in the so-called occult realm, that will in the future direct his attention more carefully to this subject, my ambition is attained.
