PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION
The kindly reception
accorded to the first edition of this book has confirmed
the author in his conviction that such a book was
needed, and has tempted him to bestow additional labor
upon it. The chief changes consist in the addition of
two new chapters, "Active Imagination," and "How to
Develop Interest in a Subject"; the division into two
parts of the unwieldy chapter on memory; the addition of
readings and exercises at the end of each chapter; the
preparation of an analytical table of contents; the
correction of the bibliography to date; the addition of
an index; and some recasting of phraseology in the
interest of clearness and emphasis.
The author gratefully
acknowledges the constructive suggestions of reviewers
and others who have used the book, and hopes that he has
profited by them in this revision.
