The writers of this book are a physician, with a special training in psychology, and a biologist. They have approached the problem of modern marriage from these two points of view and have endeavored to provide not only a guide to those about to be married but also an understanding of the chemical, physical, physiologic and biologic factors of the human body concerned in these sex relationships. After three chapters dealing with courtship and marriage they provide an easily understandable outline of the various systems of the human body and of their physiology. The concluding chapters of the book deal with adolescence, embryology, heredity and parenthood. The book is among the sanest and most dependable of all the many in this field that have been recently published.
