The Primal Scream. Primal Therapy: The Cure for Neurosis is a 1970 book by Arthur Janov, the inventor of Primal therapy. The book describes the experiences Janov had with 63 patients during his first 18 months (starting in 1967) discovering and practicing Primal therapy. Janov claimed in the book a 100% cure rate. The book, which has been called "incredibly popular", was read by tens of thousands of Americans and brought Janov fame and popular success. This inspired many therapists who had not met Janov to start offering imitation primal therapy, and led to the proliferation of programs offering happiness through radical personal transformation.
