ABSTRACT

The author of this work, though a layman, has evidently studied considerable medical literature in the preparation of his book, which he says is "intended primarily for the use of physicians." Undoubtedly it may be of some interest to medical men, but its practical value is hardly likely to be as great as perhaps its author anticipates. Hypnotism has been before the medical profession in one form or another for over a century and has always had its advocates and the utilizers, but its actual practical benefits have never equaled expectations and the verdict of half a century ago is likely to be repeated now. This little volume, while intentionally scientific, has too much unsupported theory to be succcessfully so. Like some really accomplished but not severely critical medical authorities who have injured their scientific reputations by an undue credulity in these matters, Mr. Meacham goes well beyond all possible
