In the Name of Common Sense. Worry and its Control: By Matthew N. Chappell, Ph.D. New York: The Macmillian Company, 1938. 192 pp.

Review by:
Samuel Atkin

One undertakes with distaste the reading and appraisal of this uninformed, confused, and often insincere book which essays the double task of presenting a popular exposition of a 'common sense' psychology of the neuroses, and of their mass treatment. This popular work ostensibly addressing itself directly to the neurotic patient, with its psychological explanations and therapeutic suggestions, deserves notice because of the harm it may cause by its misleading information and quack panaceas. But the reviewer doubts whether this book has the potentiality of doing either harm or good.
