The author avows that ""This book is written for those who wish to solve their problems"". This would seem to assure a large reading public, but then the author goes on to qualify his aim by admitting that his study of personal problems would be of interest only to those ""who could recognize a problem when they saw one."" This is no psychological treatise or religious homily, but there is much sound psychology and good religion and some very good writing in the book. Extremely practical -- down to earth -- refreshingly free of psycho-analytic patter and pious platitudes --this is an example of personal counselling at its best. The identification of problem-solving and religious worship is particularly suggestive. There is no particular sectarian slant to the book -- nor is the author propagating faith in any ""ism"". Many who have problems or friends who have problems would profit by the reading of this study.
