This book is obviously written for the nontechnical person who is interested in happy, peaceful family living and the development of children with well-balanced personalities. It contains a minimum of technical material and scientific terminology. Though there is always the possibility of a disturbed person becoming more disturbed when he reads health literature that he is unable to apply to himself, many normal persons could probably insure their continued good adjustment to home and society by reading this book. It should provide nontechnical words and phrases for physicians that will make their explanations of mental health to their patients more intelligible. Physicians could use this book in their offices, if only to loan to their nonmedical friends who need a bit of friendly advice.
