Review by:
Sylvan Keiser

This book is a series of short articles on a variety of subjects, from the kind of soap people prefer, to why people worry. There is nothing in this book of interest to the psychoanalyst, the clinical psychiatrist, or the general practitioner. Though many of these articles have been printed in magazines with a wide reading public, it is incredible to the reviewer that anyone can have derived any benefit from them. It is replete with such pearls as … 'the cure for prejudice is not to be prejudiced'. People who worry are urged not to worry. Though the author does say that constipation is of psychological origin, he has among his suggestions for its relief '… relax your body if you feel too tense'. He never tells the poor reader how all this is to be accomplished.
