Die Strategie Der Männlichen Annäherung: By Dr. Heinrich Wolf. (Ilos Verlag, Wien-Leipzig, 1926. Pp. 321.)

Review by:
C. P. Oberndorf

The alluring title of this book, 'The Strategy of the Masculine Approach', will no doubt catch the eye and stimulate the hopes of many awkward or unsuccessful lovers who may see it on display at the book counters, but the avowed purpose of the author is the treatment of his topic 'systematicly and scientificly '—' something which has not been attempted before'. However, the authorities to whom he refers are principally Ovid (Ars Amandi), Stendal, Bourget and other novelists in preference to the scientific investigators in the problems of sex, with whose work the author is apparently unacquainted. As a result the book is merely a collection of obvious facts, and personal or hearsay opinions which are rccorded in an easy, gossiping, readable style, ending in the conclusion that with the altering economic status of woman, the method of masculine approach is likely to change.

The foreword by Dr. Alfred Adler is cautiously evasive.
