If you are able to read a book and follow simple instructions than you can be hypnotized but only if you want to be.

Simply, anyone with reasonable intelligence can be hypnotized. The only people who may not be able to be hypnotized are people with severe mental disability and children under the age of five. In both cases it's because they may not understand the words that are being said or unable to follow instructions.

This is the part of your mind that has to figure things out with its limited abilities and is about 5% of your mind. The conscious mind is our short-term memory, it is logical, analyzes things, a creature of habit, is self-aware and the decision maker. It is the part of the mind which questions our abilities.
The subconscious mind is our long-term memory and is about 95% of our mind. It is capable of running multiple tasks simultaneously, it does not judge, criticize, analyze or reject. Once something becomes familiar, it becomes part of the subconscious mind...for example riding a bicycle/motorcycle, driving a car with manual transmission.
