Most of the material of this book is taken from the senior author's Readings in Psychology and put in more popular style for consumption by nurses. The work is not intended for physicians or specialists. As a textbook for nurses it seems to assume too great an academic point of view. The academic psychologist as evidenced by this and other works seems far removed from the living human being with his complicated emotional life and environmental stresses. To the extent to which this is true, the volume fails to meet the real needs of the nurse. It has, however, a fairly elementary and readable summary of current psychologic data.
