There is much room for praise of Dr. Polatin's book which is a guide for thought and technique in treatment in psychiatry. It fortunately lacks dogmatism, exposing numerous treatment methods for children, adolescents, adults of most organizational walks of life. Covering a wide spectrum, a longitudinal and lateral exposure, from a smattering of history to insulin, electroshock, carbon dioxide inhalation and neurosurgical therapy and to psychoanalytic theory and therapy, psychoanalytically oriented and psychopharmacological therapies, community, group and family therapies, the author conveys a depth of the movement and practice in psychiatric treatment. His book has little space for critical examination
