This is one of the most practical textbooks on psychiatry for nurses. Here is a book that is written clearly and simply. The authors fully realize that their subject must be presented concisely and with utmost simplicity because of the many other subjects the nurse must take during the course of her training. With this point of view the reviewer heartily agrees. After each of the twenty-nine chapters there is a list of questions which can be used to good advantage. There is also a bibliography. This book is highly recommended to all nurses, both undergraduate and graduate, and also to general practitioners of medicine.
