A collection of letters from women and men, categorised by their class and sometimes their profession (e.g. international, military), detailing various problems in pregnancy, sex and sexual knowledge and covering many views on contraception. Useful for studying the figure of Dr Stopes herself, often easily questionable and very much driven by her own agendas, as well as men and women of different classes concerning the most intimate of topics. Offers insight into the home lives and social expectations of both genders, although predominantly women.

Strangely enough, reading this, I later found, was an excellent way of preparing for every possible eventuality and complication in the course of pregnancy! A friend of mine sent a copy to a friend who was thinking of having another child. It was certainly an education, not to mention the immense relief I felt after reading this in knowing how much more knowledgeable we are now, and that contraceptive devices have become a lot kinder since.

I read this book many years ago when it was first published and I am very pleased to have my own copy now. This one came in very good condition, exactly as described. It was delivered very quickly.
