Presents Henry’s anxiety hysteria. Bob’s aggressiveness, and Albert’s effimacy in a realistic situation with an emotionally neutral therapist and concealed cameras and microphones. Argues for encouraging boys to form a club and work things out for themselves. Recommended for use only by individuals or groups professionally concerned with psychiatric, social, and medical fields.
