In this book the author discusses the position of woman in America today and all her relationships with men and other women in work, at home, in pleasure and, indeed, in all the aspects of woman's life. She takes up the question of friendships between men and women and between women and other women, paying a considerable amount of attention to the choice of occupation and to the question of marriage as opposed to a career. The book is written with rare understanding and calls attention in case histories to some of the individual problems that have come to her attention. She sees nothing but a broad outlook for woman in the future, with increasing opportunities. Incidentally, Dr. Knopf is a pupil of Alfred Adler and represents the school of individual psychology.
