After an introduction which considers the nature and origin of speech, its psychology and development, the author concerns himself with deviations in speech resulting from disorders in personality and, finally, with the speaker-audience relationship. The work seems to be based largely on earlier rather than more modern psychology. It presents nevertheless a concise consideration of that element of human conduct which most certainly distinguishes man from the animal.
