An autobiography is always greeted with expectations, especially when written by a contemporary psychiatrist. Myerson's autobiography is not an exception and, in spite of its unfinished quality, not a disappointment. The book is not limited strictly to autobiographical details but contains "germs of hope and a sketch of embryonic possibilities for the real living for man" as Myerson saw it. Of special interest are the excerpts from the correspondence between Myerson and his publisher Knopf regarding the growth of this book. A biographical note, written by Mildred N. Myerson, increases the value of the book considerably.
