The Macy Foundation has done pediatricians and psychologists a great service in sponsoring this "Symposium on the Healthy Personality." The deliberations of a panel of experts are set forth in a handsome book of 298 pages dealing with growth and crises, constitutional and prenatal factors and the social psychology of mental health. The discussion is of great interest but does not lend itself to detailed review.
