KIRKUS REVIEW

The charge that modern life destroys self-reliance is supported convincingly in this volume. Paternalism in the home, undue stress on individual importance in the school, inflated desire for material things fostered by radio, movies and advertising, the economic situation -- all stack up against people today. The author through cases, shows the possibility of control over our personalities and the relation of externals to them. He indicates how maturity and self-reliance can be attained, adequate adjustment made.
