The author is a psychologist, not a physician; from the contents of the book it is obvious that he has specialized with and is treating inebriates, and from his own account successfully. He does not discuss the physical aspects of alcoholism, but is concerned solely with the psychology of the patients. There is nothing new in this presentation. Psychologists should not treat patients with mental disorders; that is not their function. It should be done by physicians.
