This book is intended for the lay reader, although the general physician will also find it interesting and profitable to read. The author writes authoritatively as the pioneer of the subject generally termed psychosomatic medicine. The style is simple and nontechnical, sustaining interest throughout. The most frequent questions and doubts of the people are adequately answered by the contents, which include discussions of typical physical disturbances caused by emotional conflicts. The book is highly recommended.
