This is a short brochure in which the author discusses the causes of stammering, its manifestations and mental attitudes and the influences that increase stammering as well as diminish it, and insists that stammering is an impediment in thought. In this connection he discusses the nature of thought — consciousness, sensation, mental images, etc. Another chapter is devoted to psychoneuroses. In part 2 he discusses the principles of speech correction and their application in kindergarten work and among grade school children, high school students and adults.
It is a short, readable presentation of the subject of stammering and one which every practicing otologist can follow.
