Review by:
Douglas Bryan

Seeing that the author in his Preface, apropos of a remark made to him by Dr. Mercier twenty years ago, says, 'So ever since I have shunned Psychology, and clung to that which is good, and these artless pages are the result', and then heads three chapters out of five, 'Psychology and Organic Life', 'Psychology and Disease', 'Suggestion', it is perfectly clear that these chapters will have very little in them 'that is good', and may well be described as 'artless'.

The reader seeks in vain for anything original or even helpful in the book, but only finds the usual commonplace remarks in which this type of book generally abounds.
