On this three-disc set you will learn, in detail, Anthony's approach to impromptu hypnosis - no prior knowledge is required - the first part of this set will guide you through everything you need to know in order to become the hypnotist. The second part takes the format of a discussion forum where Anthony is joined by mad genius, Kev Sheldrake and fellow hypnotist and magician Amit Badiani.
