This textbook is designed for students and practitioners, as a guide for treatment of the neuroses. It contains a brief account of the writings of Freud, Adler, Jung and other modern psychologists. Freud's work receives the most space and, on the whole accurate reporting, but rather scant praise. The method of making suggestion and hypnosis is outlined. The more important neuroses and psychoses, are described, with illustrative cases. This work is on the whole, rather colorless, with little new material except the reports of cases. For this reason it might appeal to beginners in psychiatry, but it lacks the reality and convincingness of Bernard Hart's little book of Freud's introductory lectures or of clear, objective descriptions.
