This book can be heartily recommended; it fills a real need of students and practitioners entering on the practical study of psychiatry. It is essentially a revision and elaboration of the outline prepared several years ago by Dr. Adolf Meyer for use in the New York State Hospitals, with well selected additions, especially for the study of personality and endocrine disturbances. In spite of the somewhat appalling appearance of length and detail, the guides will be found eminently practical and sufficiently elastic to permit adjustment to the needs of the individual case. The danger of losing individuality and developing a stereotyped phraseology, inherent in all schematic plans for examination, has been fully recognized and guarded against by repeated warnings in the text. An examination made with the intelligent use of the outlines furnished will provide the facts needed, not only for classification but also for the far more important questions
