KIRKUS REVIEW

By a layman and intended for laymen, these cases from the practice of a Dr. Louis Montgomery trace seven analyses to their successful conclusions, engender more human interest than subtle psychiatric insight, and offer an assuring application of the Freudian technique. A brilliant architect finds his ""blueprint for failure"" in the sense of rejection of his childhood; Linda, whose five romantic marriages quickly turn to disgust, finds the answer in the death of her grandfather which shattered her early security; Marvin, more mouse than man, learns to assert himself- and Brian, a soft touch, understands his compulsion to give ""till it hurts""; etc., etc. Not as suggestive as the Robert Lindner books, but analysis made accessible at a general level, modified by Dr. Montgomery's temperate approach, and more than once removed from professional obscurantism.
