Appraising Personality. The Use of Psychological Tests in the Practice of Medicine: By Molly Harrower, Ph.D. (London: Routledge and Kegan Paul, 1953. Pp. 197. 18 s.)

Review by:
Joseph Sandler

In this short and well-written book Molly Harrower describes the ways in which the clinical psychologist can apply his skills to help the physician in his work. It is presented in the form of a dialogue between Physician Jones and Psychologist Smith, in which the latter expounds, in simple language, the ways in which psychological tests (such as the Rorschach, Wechsler-Bellevue, and Szondi tests) can be given and interpreted. Case material is given, and the visual illustrations are good.

This work is probably an excellent exposition for someone who, like Physician Jones, knows nothing whatsoever about the work of the clinical psychologist. It would also be of value to the undergraduate, but those who have some experience of clinical testing may perhaps feel that the subject has been viewed through rose-tinted spectacles.
