KIRKUS REVIEW

spite of the seemingly inevitable title in its variorum treatments (Helen urley Brown, Gael Greene and of course Dr. Ellis), this is considered an intelligent discussion, by a psychiatrist, of the problems which attend the male crisis, more acute in this country where a more adamant youth cult persists. Youth is valued at the expense of achievement...Dr. Saxe evaluates the male climacteric (a mental rather than physical state) in terms of its attendant problems: impotence (usually also in cause); depressions which are very common at this time; problem drinking, she ""crippling disease"" of the middle years; and lesser related emotional difficulties. There are some closing words on physical aging and retirement, and throughout, good deal of actual case history implementation. A sound and satisfactory middle evel approach.
