The book gives popular and vivid but withal reliable accounts of some phases of scientific and practical psychiatry in recent times. Certain noteworthy achievements in psychiatry are described, largely on the basis of personal observations and interviews with leaders in the field, coupled with results of research of past records of the literature. No effort is made to review systematically the basic history of psychiatry and neurology. That mental illnesses long regarded as incurable are now in some cases curable is emphasized hopefully and effectively.
