KIRKUS REVIEW

The good Doctor (What Next Doctor Peck and other writings) unloads his views, findings from a long medical experience (and marriage), and general opinions on the opposite sex and thereby gives warning to his brothers that She is still the unexplained. Males can win but only by dealing with illogic more illogically -- otherwise submission, currently even more enforced, is the only answer. (Men, of course, can't do without women- but they can complain.) So, here is Woman, from birth to death, in all her contrariness (he even rewrites part of the Bible to explain how she has operated from time immemorial), her primitive, inherited feminity, her miniscular atmosphere, her demands and her refusals, her outward and inward living, and her (unfortunate) occasions of being absolutely right. Kiwanis club humor in this ""ol' pappy"" survey may still not keep the urbanites from using it for additional ammunition -- after they have worn out the smart talk.
