This book of some 200 pages, written for the laity, is the first book of its sort that the reviewer is willing to advise his own patients to buy. The senior author has obviously had an extended experience in obstetrics and gynecology and has tried to answer the many questions asked by patients. Medical terms are omitted, and it is written in a language that the patient can understand. In eleven chapters, ovulation, fertilization, childhood, puberty, sex life, marriage, tumors, menopause, sterility, venereal disease, etc., are adequately covered. It is a book that should be read first by the girl in her early teens and then every decade.
