Dr. Collins, through his experience as a neurologist, is able to look at the subject of sleep from the point of view of the mechanist concerned primarily with the physiologic functions of the body and of the psychiatrist who understands the deviations of the human mind. Hence his book may be considered one of the most practical works available in its field. His method of treatment includes not only proper attention to the physical accompaniments of sleep but particularly an attempt to get at the psychologic basis of the disorder that keeps the mind constantly in turmoil and distress. The book is essentially a new presentation of material published before. It carefully avoids much of the unestablished theory of modern psychologic schools. For this reason it is probably one of the most practical guide books available for those suffering with insomnia.
