KIRKUS REVIEW

A simplified explanation of psychiatry for the layman, this illustrates each point with a mythical case history and will fascinate all those interested in the current trend of finding out more about ourselves. Dr. Berne has an easygoing, open-minded approach, and the use of technical terms is kept to a minimum. Divided in three sections, Normal Development covers the basic psychiatric theories plus several more or less unorthodox ones; Abnormal development is concerned with neuroses, psychoses, their causes and effects; Methods of treatment include psychoanalysis and the physical types of treatment, who needs treatment, and how to go about finding it. The appendices contain discussions of such pertinent questions as ""What about intuition- extra-sensory glossary and bibliography, this gives a good general introduction to the subject.
