Here is another attempt to present the point of view of modern medical psychology toward the maladjustments of modern life. The author is not a freudian but he accepts much of the fundamental psychology revealed by that school. He writes for the well educated reader explaining the background of nervous complaints. In his preface he wisely disclaims for his work any therapeutic merit. The work is sound but in no sense of the word simple. The book is safe for the psychasthenic and is not likely to be an etiologic factor in that direction if read by the allegedly normal.
