The popularity of this is largely dependent on whether a saturation point has been reached with Romulo, Clark Lee, Juanita Redmond, etc. -- for -- inevitably -- there is overlapping. This has a different slant, the woman's viewpoint, and not the nurse's viewpoint. The ""housekeeping"" problems, the lack of privacy, the tension of constant fear and danger, and so on. I found it interesting, rather unprofessional and simple in style -- but not important enough as a basic book to be a fourth on the list. There are probably plenty of women who would prefer this wholly unmilitary slant so go after that market.
