In this booklet Dr. Mosher has concentrated a mass of sound advice on the personal hygiene of women, based not only on her extensive experience as medical adviser of women in Stanford University, but also on a thorough knowledge of the literature and on personal research. She has devoted particular attention to the problems of painful and difficult menstruation. For this, a hygiene of life and a series of simple exercises have been developed which have yielded satisfactory results in many cases. The book is a sound text on the subjects it covers; it may be safely recommended by physicians to their patients. Its use should be encouraged, for the application of the doctrines it advances will bring immeasurable relief and comfort to a vast number of women whose present ailments and distress are the result of a lack of knowledge of the things it teaches.
