MORE POWER TO YOUR MIND

For those, ""who are needlessly operating below the level of effectiveness of which they are capable"", who are badgered -- or harried by doubt and indecision, this is an explanation of human behaviour by an Associate Professor of Psychology at C.C.N.Y. which derives from no particular school but a great deal of general understanding. For there is a great deal of ""organized common sense"" in this interpretation (and application) of psychological principles: the fundamental needs of the self (for identification and independence and self-expression); the self-deceptions or defense mechanisms; the power principle and the need for mastery; the frustration and aggression reaction; conflicts and their resolution; learning; work satisfaction; psychosomatic situations; sex; child-parent and home relationships -- these are all analyzed with insight... A book of more substance than the tag title would indicate, for self-knowledge at higher level.
