From the Preface: "The object of this work is to awaken public attention to the importance of making some modification in the method of educating children, which now prevails in this country. It is intended to show the necessity of giving more attention to the health and growth of the body, and less to the cultivation of the mind, especially in early life, than is now given." The author was a psychiatrist and one of the founding members of what became the American Psychiatric Association.
