The author of this small monograph has been interested in menstrual distress for many years. He has prepared a very readable monograph, which contains the following chapters: Introduction to Menorrhalgia, Physiologic and Morphologic Background, Menstrual Distress—Why?, Hormonal Interceptors and Excitors, Pharmaco-Physio Dynamics, Surgical Interceptors, Clinical Evaluation, and the Menorrhalgic Patient and Her Treatment. Each chapter is supplemented by a list of references. Bickers discusses the various forms of treatment, with special emphasis on his own. The book contains an excellent exposition of its subject.
