KIRKUS REVIEW

Everyone interested in Psychology, Religion, other people or themselves will be fascinated by this book and you should be sure in selling it that you do not let the words Psychology or Religion throw off your customer because they sound heavy, dull or technical. It is ""sound"" but one of the most readable and enjoyable books I've run across. It is 'fun reading', and for the person who is intrigued with psychology it is made to order. All the complicated terms and Latin names are omitted. The author says in simple English what he means and loses none of his authority or impressiveness. The problems of individuals are clearly stated and dealt with, then the individual in relation to society. While he treats these problems as medical he feels that they are medical only because they have not been made religious. As he points out psychoanalysts have done more for medicine because priests have done less in recent years. I recommend it heartily and wish it could reach that popular market that waste their time and money on self-help books.
