For anyone who wishes a rather thorough survey of the literature on childhood schizophrenia, this book is quite adequate. It is thorough and fairly up-to-date as far as the publication material is concerned. Dr. Wolman has a theory of his own which he interjects which is not too far out of line with other theories and admittedly therapeutic success in general is not so good that any one theory can stand out. However, the material on psychotherapy is extremely scant and it would be very difficult for the untrained individual to carry out. Aside, therefore, from the review of the literature this is not an outstanding contribution to a continuingly muddy field.
