"From this comparatively simple first volume it is easy to see how the fascinating mind of Jung approached and dealt with his material. His documentation is extremely careful but never tedious. This text reads with a freshness that is the hallmark of genius."--The New England Journal of Medicine

Here are some representative quotations from the book:
"We possess no infallible method of unmasking the malingerer and are as dependent as ever on the subjective impression he makes on the observer." (Pg. 159)
"Simulation of insanity is in general a rather rare phenomenon, being confined almost entirely to persons in detention and convicts." (Pg. 188)
"It is not so very uncommon for two psychiatric diagnoses to reach contradictory conclusions, especially when, as in the present case, it is a question of the very elastic borderline between complete irresponsibility and partial responsibility." (Pg. 209)
"The asylum should never become the executive organ of criminal law. By relieving criminal justice of inconvenient elements we do not make them better, we merely ruin our asylums." (PG. 218)
