I read this book as a college sophomore in 1958 and still remember it as a beautifully written introduction to a field that I have been in for over 50 years. Their core concept of "perfink", an amalgam of perception, feeling, and thinking, was the organizing theme of this textbook and has stayed with me all these years. It was prescient, years ahead of its time, and has helped me make sense of psychology, especially clinical psychology. I wish I had met them to compliment them on a brilliant textbook.
