Yochelson and Samenow have definitely profiled the characteristics of the errors of criminal thinking, together with their derivatives–feeling and behavior. They show persuasively that because of ingrained and pervasive errors of thinking, criminals live and act in a world with entirely different assumptive bases than those of noncriminals. The authors then proceed to develop a treatment program using a phenomenological approach. This exhaustive and painstaking study marks a turning point in the history of efforts to rehabilitate criminals.

Drs. Yochelson and Samenow's work constitutes an unprecedented scrutiny of criminal behavior, going beyond mere microscopic analysis. Volume II makes good the promise expressed in Volume I: that the fruition of fifteen years of research would be no less than an entirely new approach to understanding and modifying the criminal's thought patterns.
