This is a well written book containing a carefully presented analysis of the factors that may combine to produce sterility. Its contents include a chapter on the general considerations of childlessness, followed by chapters explanatory of the reproductive functions of the husband and wife, on examinations of the husband and wife to determine the cause of childlessness, on what treatments of the husband or wife may be necessary, on the probability of success of such treatments, and a concluding chapter dispelling some popular misconceptions about sterility and about the correction of that condition. The foreword correctly states that the book will be of special value to the childless couple. It can also be read with advantage by physicians to whom childless couples may appeal for help.
