The author is a psychologist who has done some experimental or observational work on feeding behavior in children and animals. The monograph is of interest mainly to psychologists. Hunger and appetite are frequently confused by the author, and speculations are given undue prominence. Much of the recent objective work on hunger in man and animals is not even referred to. It is not a significant contribution to biology.
