David Seabury has built a reputation for sane, balanced and practical application of the theories and practices of modern psychology and psychoanalysis. In this book he attempts to take his reader behind the scenes, by study of cases of common neuroses, of states of mind which are within individual control. He lays down, a bit at a time, positive advice as to procedure, exercises for rebuilding sound values, for defeating negative responses, for extending one's capacity for thinking. The recent article in Fortune on mental hygiene, the other articles on the subject in various periodicals, have aroused the public to the need of just such a book as this. May not be a quick over-the-counter sale, but watch your chance to suggest it to customers who inquire about material of the kind. This is no panacea for all human ills -- no substitute for professional care in advanced cases -- but good ""first aid"" -- and ""preventative medicine"" as well. Circulars available for imprint.
