Physicians who have not devoted much time or thought to the human perplexities involved in marital relations would do well to prescribe this book for reading by young persons who come to them for counsel before marriage. The author is well qualified as an adviser. He brings to the subject expert knowledge and deep human understanding. The book impresses the reviewer as more practical and useful as a guide to those ignorant of the physical side of marriage than any of the many he has encountered, and its wide distribution undoubtedly would prevent much unnecessary unhappiness.
