The aim of the author of this volume, says Dr. Taylor, "has been to portray the various forms of sexual disorders in the male on the basis of advanced knowledge of the anatomy, physiology and pathology of the various portions of the sexual sphere." The author points out that the failure of antecedent treatises on the subject to furnish practical information, has been due to the fact that the mode of certain neuroses and the symptoms of sexual debility, termed functional disturbances, so over-mastered the minds of writers that some "unimportant points" were unduly magnified or wrongly presented.

The great experience of Dr. Taylor in the treatment of affections of this nature, and his experience as an author, make his opinions of immense value; hence we can not too highly commend to the general practicing physician and surgeon the perusal of this work and its addition to the library.
