YOU AND PSYCHIATRY by William Menninger


Email this review


This book grew out of two men's work in their respective fields of service of psychiatry and public relations. Here for the uninformed, uninitiated, and the many that are gunshy of this new science is the simplest possible presentation which gives the anatomy of the "average" personality, the main statements of psychiatric theory. There is no complexity here in either case illustration or terminology. The whole is designed to give the elementals of a branch of medicine which should be looked on as a part of everyday life. Excellent introduction for young people.
