The book is written from the standpoint of mental hygiene and is directed to the physician, parent and teacher and "those people with the symptom called stuttering." The book is without question one of the best treatises on the subject that has yet appeared, and whatever the future may bring to modify or add to the present status of the problem of stuttering, the main theories and facts which the Blantons present will doubtless stand as permanent contributions. The Blantons have been pioneers in this country in the study of the pathogenesis and treatment of stuttering, and their approach, unlike that of so many others interested in this problem, has been that of open-minded observation and critical analysis in many cases of patients of all ages over a period of years, taking into account and evaluating not one but all the possible factors that affect speech and result in stuttering.
