Without ""talking down"" to the reader, the author simplifies fundamentals of psychology as stepping-stones to adjustment and maturity. Parental relationships with children are discussed sanely with a cause-and-effect approach. Woman's role in the American economy is examined with emphasis on the increasing number of working wives. The common manifestations of emotional insecurity in adolescence are described here with some consideration of later difficulties encountered by the emotionally immature in marriage. Very sound treatment of the teen-ager as a member of a family group now and later. One of the best of its type.
