This book summarizes conclusions arrived at after many years of scientific observation of normal and abnormal children by one of the foremost psychiatrists of this country. It is short, lucidly written, strikingly devoid of scientific terminology, and presented in an interesting manner. The subject matter is divided in two parts. The first deals with the development of the normal child from infancy through adolescence. The writer assumes the attitude of the behaviorists: "Barring the small number of grossly defective and handicapped infants, every child at birth is potentially a normal creature." In the chapter on infancy such important problems as the attitude of the mother and formation of the early habits are discussed. Authority, imitation, tantrums and repression are among the items discussed in the chapter on the nursery and preschool period. The next chapter develops the adjustment of the child to its school environment. Perhaps the most important chapter
