KIRKUS REVIEW

A medical interpretation of the contributory causes to happiness - or its reverse, this analyzes both the physical and the psychological factors which play their part. There is the unhappy man, who may be trapped, ugly, secretive, stingy, bored, too timid or too aggressive, worried, or misplaced; there is the pathology of unhappiness which may result from obesity, underweight, insomnia, headaches, ulcers, or one of any number of chronic ailments; there are the sources of unhappiness, whether in childhood, adolescence, or later in life as one approaches the climacteric and old age; and there are the means of attaining happiness, through hope, loss of fear and faith, and through the tangibles of home and clothes and health.... Dr. Gumpert writes- but not onwards- for a substantial audience (You Are Younger Than You Think) and this will ave a steady following.
