KIRKUS REVIEW

An appraisal of habits which have here a wider meaning than just biting your nails and which consist of the temperamental traits and attitudes you expose to the world around you. Know thyself is once again the basic directive and there are the methods of diagnosis you can apply to yourself; how habits are established- and how they conflict; the good ones, and the bad, and the fundamental drives-fear- anger- etc. And lastly physical habits (smoking, eating, drinking) and the cultivation of those which are really constructive interests. Popular personality guidance, which applies a working psychology to motives and manifestations and uses life illustrations from his own practice. Self help, help yourself.
