Understanding Yourself. The Mental Hygiene of Personality: By Ernest R. Groves. New York: Emerson Books, Inc., 1941. 279 pp.

Review by:
H. E. Chamberlain

For a few lay readers this revised edition no doubt will be of some practical value. In a precise sort of way it presents the means by which one might come to a better understanding of himself. But its simple optimism is misleading and those who have the greatest need for some such reassurance may well be the very ones who, having read this book, will have been helped the least. It errs in being somewhat too purposeful in maintaining that those who seek to understand their own personal problems may really understand them by reading repetitiously of them or their equivalents.
