This book may be classed as one of the better type of books written for the neurotic public. There is included in it a wealth of sane advice, and the author's experience is such as enables him to speak from a truly practical point of view. The average individual to whom the book is given will not in all probability give it the real study which its contents deserve. It is questionable whether the neurotic patient can be prevailed on to concentrate his mind on any literature. The book takes a modern sane view of the field of psychanalysis. Some of the illustrations cannot be said to add anything to the value of the work. However, it is a book which, like few others of its class, can safely be recommended to the clientele for which it was prepared.
