This monograph on the subject of interviewing is already in its second printing. It deals with the technic of interviewing persons who may be reluctant to talk by reason of shyness or antagonism and those who may be overanxious to talk for reasons of their own. Many examples are given of successful interviews together with discussions as to the reasons for their success. It contains many points which might be helpful to the physician, especially in relation to history taking.
