This book, written in a semipopular style, deals with aberrations of sexual instinct and behavior largely from a clinical standpoint. It is the reviewer's impression that the discussion is not based on the most profound modern psychiatric knowledge in this field, and many of the lengthy case reports could perhaps be replaced to advantage by more systematic discussions of the principles involved in these aberrations, both psychic and somatic.
