book was written to redress the balance. It is a guide to marriage and paternity.

The first part discusses a man's relations with his wife, the second his relations with his children. There is some useful biological information and good psychological advice. Both are expressed clearly, sensibly and humorously, and the lesson is driven home by a series of entertaining illustrations.

The book is not, and is not intended to be, profound, but it admirably performs its function.
