Terhune's material is presented in an interesting fashion, emphasizing the usual psychiatric problems facing the physician and offering practical suggestions for dealing with them. The subject matter is aimed at interns, residents, and physicians outside the field of psychiatry. The writer has treated of a large and difficult field at a level consistent with the training and experience of the young physician. Eight lectures and demonstrations make up a volume of 169 pages. Those who have not had training in psychiatry will find this book interesting and valuable. Teachers of psychosomatic medicine might find it useful in orienting the student and as a proved method of interesting physicians in mental hygiene and psychiatry.
