This volume is a summary of the views of eighteen American and seven European authorities on stuttering. Its purpose is to facilitate study of the literature. Although several outstanding authorities, such as Orton and Janet, have been omitted, the author has presented the views of all of the schools of thought on the subject.

In reading this volume one is impressed with the widely divergent, authoritative, positive views on the cause, nature and treatment of stuttering. In the appendix the author describes briefly the procedure followed in his clinic in Detroit.

The book is well written, instructive and interesting. A bibliography is appended.
