From the experience drawn from years spent in caring for those of unsound minds, Dr. Keniston endeavors to tell his readers how to promote intelligent living and how to avert mental disaster. In his opinion, the vagaries of the disordered mind enable us the better to understand the normal processes of the healthy mind. The book is an enlargement of a series of lectures delivered before various social organizations, and is intended for the young as well as for adults, being an effort to present in simple language ananalysis of the mental faculties so that the reader may learn to use his faculties intelligently and to conquer doubts and fears. Physicians in search of a suitable book for patients in need of mental discipline would do well to consider Dr. Keniston's volume.
