By MAJOR RALPH ERNEST JONES, U. S. A. Foreword by BRIGADIER GENERAL FOX CONNER, U. S. Army

A work of applied Psychology, concisely written with sufficient detail to be clear and understandable.

The Book is clearly written; its arrangement is excellent; the subjects are wisely chosen and the generous scope of the little work is splendid.
