The only flaws with the book needing noted is the lower tip of the front board wasn't folded as tightly as it could have been during manufacturing (there is a small gap at the fold) and, secondly, the head of the spine shows light to moderate signs of use/wear. The dust wrapper has light to moderate signs of use at the head of the spine. At the tips, at the fold of the flaps, there are minimal signs of wear, but no paper showing through.

THE FOLLOWING IS PROVIDED AS ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. I CAN NOT GUARANTEE THAT IT IS 100% CORRECT/VALID. Bruno Bettelheim (August 28, 1903? March 13, 1994), a Jewish native of Austria, became known as a child psychologist and writer after immigrating as a refugee to the United States of America in 1939. He gained an international reputation for his views on autism and for his success in treating emotionally disturbed children. Bettelheim subscribed to and became a prominent proponent of the "refrigerator mother" theory of autism? the theory that autistic behaviors stem from the emotional frigidity of the children's mothers? which enjoyed considerable influence into the 1960s and 1970s in the US. However, some indications suggest that he later changed his thinking. Bettelheim's 1967 book The Empty Fortress: Infantile Autism and the Birth of the Self, which promoted the "refrigerator mother" theory of autism, enjoyed wide success, especially in the popular press. The book played a key role in ensuring that the "refrigerator mother" theory soon became the accepted explanation for autism in popular culture and, to a considerable extent, in professional circles. As a result, many mothers of children on the autistic spectrum suffered from feelings of blame, guilt, and self-doubt from the 1950s throughout the 1970s and beyond: under the widespread assumption of the correctness of the prevailing medical belief that autism resulted from inadequate parenting. Subsequently, medical research has provided greater understanding of biological bases of autism and other illnesses. Scientists have largely discredited Bettelheim's views on autism, although as of 2009 the "refrigerator mother" theory still retains some prominent supporters. Among numerous other works, Bruno Bettelheim wrote The Uses of Enchantment, published in 1976. In it he analyzed fairy tales in terms of Freudian psychology. The book won the U.S. Critic's Choice Prize for criticism in 1976 and the National Book Award in the category of Contemporary Thought in 1977. Bettelheim discussed the emotional and symbolic importance of fairy tales for children, including traditional tales at one time considered too dark, such as those collected and published by the Brothers Grimm. After Bettelheim's suicide (1990) it emerged that he had falsified some of his academic credentials. At the same time, a number of his former patients came forward with accusations of neglect. Bettelheim's posthumous personal and professional reputation suffered considerably as a result.
