Written in a popular style for "the average reader who has an interest in the subject of mental health, but who lacks formal training in psychology or psychiatry," this volume has little of interest for the student or specialist in the field. The author attempts a synthesis of modern principles of child guidance and the theological concepts of his church. Nevertheless, the essentially biologic concepts of heredity, environment and the present day psychiatric concepts of the psychoneuroses and psychoses are accurately rendered in a simple, readable style.
