KIRKUS REVIEW

A liberal look at contraception: Dr. Neubardt reviews the possibilities from rhythm and post-coital douching (unreliable) through withdrawal, condom, diaphragm, Grafenburg ring, to tube tying and that post facto contraceptive (as he sees it), abortion. His message is that no particular method is right for everyone--to each her own--although he does make a stronger case for the pill than any other method, while assessing the psychological and physiological aspects pro and con of each. He considers as well sexual needs and satisfactions in marriage at various stages, and advises on how to move from the infertile to the fertile state when considering a child. Sane, humane treatment.
