Summary

"A chalice of wisdom for our time." (Ernest L. Rossi, PhD, C.J. Jung Institute of Los Angeles)

Milton H. Erickson has been called the most influential hypnotherapist of our time. Part of his therapy was his use of teaching tales, which through shock, surprise, or confusion - with genius use of questions, puns, and playful humor - helped people to see their situations in a new way. In this audiobook Sidney Rosen has collected over 100 of the tales. Presented verbatim and accompanied by Dr. Rosen's commentary, they are grouped under such headings as Motivating Tales, Reframing, and Capturing the Innocent Eye. 

My Voice Will Go with You is skillfully narrated by Brian Arens, an Audible listener favorite.

Exceptional, a must for therapists.

Exceptional teachings through stories used by Erickson to achieve a style of therapy second to none.

Interesting but...

I think the book would benefit from Erickson’s tales being announced, ie “Tale 1 The naughty child”, and then the authors analysis of the tale also being announced. It’s sometimes difficult to know when one tale ends and the author’s analysis starts. Fascinating man though. Enjoyed it.

A classic

Interesting stories from a different time. Eriksson is definitely the grandfather of hypnotherapy as we know it today.

Brilliant!

Have the Audible and Kindle versions of the book to allow me to read/highlight the words as they are spoken. Doesn't give many clues as to how Erickson sent his clients into trance to achieve the results but it allows you to understand the way his mind worked and give a taste to the practitioner of his ingenious use of metaphors. The book also details other books of interest for the dedicated learner

Amazing, Erickson was a genius.

Love the tales, so unusual, so deep, so inspiring.

I like the voice of the reader.

I will hear it again. I want more!

Exasperating

This is the most irritating book I have listened to on Audible. The preamble lasts until chapter 4. The story line is a tangled confusing mesh of Erickson's life, his methods and the author's ,very personal, interpretations.
Would it be too much to ask just to listen to the actual stories invented by the man himself.

Teaching tales

I love this book I have a hard copy, read it many times. It has been invaluable in my practice as a hypnotherapist over the years so delighted to find it available on Audible. I would highly recommend it

interesting Background into Erickson

If you're a hypnotherapist this insight, into the founder of hypnotherapy, is probably essential reading. Some of Erickson's therapies involved the telling of stories that resonated deeply with the individual to create impactful change.

Very interesting and thought-provoking, such as the little girl who steals and the man who stood still for years.

Takes to late in chapter 3 to start up

It’s a must have, it’s the wizards work, but it’s also taxed with academic nothingness in the first non elites prohibitory taxing manner of charades of words saying nothing at all but a sorta of benign build up for the intellectually easily ruffled and scoff real world success types.

To be fair it’s a near perfect fit for those in institutionalized style of education who fear the crazy and wild free thinkers like Erickson who slip thru the cracks and maintain wonder and personal power... nor worse the the Autodidactic self starters who question not only others but themselves with such scrutiny we shutter at these 3 first taxing opening chapters...

Otherwise, exceptional resource ;-)

A review of the practice of Dr. Milton Erickson.

The wondrous tales of a great hypnotherapist, who I once was invited to hear at a meeting of the Conn. Medical Society, in Hartford, CT. His soothing manner furthered my interest in the study and practice of self hypnosis.
