This paperback presents 14 selected articles, carefully screened by a committee from the Editorial Board of Psychosomatic Medicine, most of which were recognized as old friends. Engel's original study of an infant with a gastric fistula, Mirsky's 1957 landmark paper on the etiology of duodenal ulcer, and MacLean's article, "The Visceral Brain," are the first three contributions selected. Most of the articles are of similar importance.
I am enthusiastic enough about this book to look forward to using it as assigned reading for students in the area of psychological medicine. But it is not a book I strongly recommend to
