This is a luxuriantly verbose presentation of the author's ideas on Freud's old anxiety neurosis, which in its most intense form with distinct physical symptoms may reach the point of agony. The author calls himself "a specialist in diseases of nutrition," in which domain he may be a bright and constant light. Of the psychoneuroses he writes like a fluent amateur, and one gains the impression that the book was written for the instruction of no one but to impress laymen and ignorant general practitioners with the desirability of consulting the author. Some of the descriptions of symptoms are good, and some of the items of treatment are excellent; but the book is neither a scientific exposition nor a reasonable guide to treatment.
