Tip: To sort articles by Rankā€¦

PEP-Web Tip of the Day

You can specify Rank as the sort order when searching (it’s the default) which will put the articles which best matched your search on the top, and the complete results in descending relevance to your search. This feature is useful for finding the most important articles on a specific topic.

You can also change the sort order of results by selecting rank at the top of the search results pane after you perform a search. Note that rank order after a search only ranks up to 1000 maximum results that were returned; specifying rank in the search dialog ranks all possibilities before choosing the final 1000 (or less) to return.

For the complete list of tips, see PEP-Web Tips on the PEP-Web support page.

Review by:
Martin W. Peck

The author, a well-known writer and an adventuresome traveler in remote countries, who was committed voluntarily to a high grade hospital on account of chronic alcoholism, tells the story of his seven months' sojourn. A vivid picture of the modern institutional management and treatment of mental disorder is presented. At the same time the patient-author, with his facile pen, spins a lively yarn of the humor, pathos and adventure within the restricted realm of hospital life. On the whole the book is fair and friendly. The light touch makes good reading, and a little banter at the expense of the psychiatrists will hurt no one.
