Instant hypnosis[edit]

This article seems to promote "instant hypnosis" and cites what may not qualify in Wikipedia's terms as a" reliable source," such as articles in peer-reviewed journals, or books from respected publishers such as a university press or textbook publisher. Edison (talk) 23:27, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

  • I removed links to two commercial websites which are not the sort of reliable source Wikipedia requires for articles, especially those dealing with medical or quasi-medical topics like hypnosis. References should be to respected peer-reviewed scientific journals, or to books by respected publishers, not sites promoting training materials for "instant hypnosis." Google scholar has some articles related to "instant hypnosis" which could be used in the article, though some of the results there might not be considered reliable sources. Some of the books at Google books dealing with the topic do not appear to be reliable sources, but rather popular how-to books. Edison (talk) 14:41, 1 May 2012 (UTC)
