Review by:
W. H. Gillespie

This book can be recommended to readers of the Journal interested in recent developments in physical methods of treatment. The subject is covered more comprehensively than in any other book with which the reviewer is acquainted, and chapters are included on the insulin treatment of schizophrenia, modified insulin therapy, electrical convulsion therapy, continuous narcosis, prefrontal leucotomy, and numerous other topics. The book is written in an easy, lucid style, and includes full practical instructions about the details of technique.
