SIGNED and DATED (Mar. 8, 1968) by the author on the ffep. "Now a noted psychiatrist has written a brilliantly perceptive study of the factors underlying this potent force in our national life. Dr. Beisser's new book encompasses the entire scope of the sports world, [examining] not only the athlete but the audience as well. A large portion of this book consists of case studies. All but one of these deal with professional or highly skilled amateur athletes whose problems are closely related to an excessive dependence on sports. In discussing these cases Dr. Beisser examines thoroughly the positive as well as the destructive aspects of sports." Signed by Author
