KIRKUS REVIEW

To the more sophisticated reader, a good deal of what Dr. Birchall has to say is almost as familiar as the variations on this title, but she is a reasonable, experienced practitioner-counselor; she sponsors ""femininity"" staunchly as woman's greatest asset; and she stresses the interdependence of any good marital relationship. The adult woman is one that has achieved legal status (some never do achieve maturity); she should try to acquire the above-mentioned femininity here equated with being charming, graceful and relaxed. Beyond that the discussion ranges over a woman's sex needs (an emotional foundation here), sex life, the unmarried woman be she single, divorced or widowed, infidelity (a rebellion usually), marital compatibility, frigidity (in women, gratification is secondary), etc. Dr. Birchall is sound and represents an enlightened conservatism.
