Review by:
M. D. Eder

Dr. Forsyth in his Foreword agrees with Miss Chadwick that most nurses do not understand neurotic cases; perhaps this failure is partly due to a similar ignorance on the part of those responsible for the scientific training of the nurse. Here is anyway a valiant attempt to remove the reproach from the nurse herself. A careful study of this book with a mind sufficiently open and alert to be able to refer to the actual patient's condition and behaviour in confirmation of Miss Chadwick's statements will give enlightenment.

The chief forms of nervous disorders and their psycho-pathology are described in language that is sufficiently free from technicalities to make the conditions clear to well-educated women—the only class of nurses to whom the book is addressed.
