In the introduction of this booklet Dr. Brill says: "It is sad to say that many medical practitioners and the great majority of lay persons still have a very peculiar idea of psychoanalysis, its aims and accomplishments.... After reading this manuscript by Dorothy Blitzsten, I feel that the author is to be congratulated on having performed a difficult task. I am sure that the book will be of great interest and enlightenment to all seekers of the truth about Freud's psychoanalysis." The subjects of the chapters are: psychoanalysis explained, why be analyzed? how psychoanalysis works, how it is done, who is the analyst? and whence comes psychoanalysis? The reviewer was unable to find tangible data or specific information.
