Review by:
John Rickman

'Psycho-Analysis for All' is not the same as 'All of Psycho-Analysis'. The author realizes this; the more intelligent of the public will realize it too; for the others the book will be an enlightenment and will provide a thought-provoking hour. If the transference to quacks (medically qualified and lay) were not as strong as it is frequently proved to be, the chief lesson of the book, that therapy has to go beyond the first relief of the anxiety of the patient, would make patients dissatisfied with any but a deep analysis. The ingenious and dramatic way in which the author traps the reader into satisfaction at the first or 'relief' stage of therapeutic activity, only to reveal the dangers of half-analysis, places this book in the ranks of Sensational Literature, while its warning to be content only with thoroughness places it among the Guide Books.

This book tries to give a peep behind the scenes, to show the workshop in action. For a popular account it is a praise-worthy attempt, but shares with film versions of psycho-analysis one great error—an inaccurate rendering of the tempo of unconscious processes. Dramatic considerations require speedy changes; in therapy we find that deep processes are slow. If this time element could be inserted into graphic narratives such a book as this would deserve even more praise.
