The Sexual Life of Man: By Dr. Placzek. (London: John Bale, Sons & Danielsson. Pp. xx + 314. Price 12 s. 6 d.)

Review by:
S. L. Yates

As its title suggests, this book procends to treat of the whole sexual life of man, physical and psychological. On the psychological side its treatment of Freudian theories reverts to the time-worn practice of setting up a dummy, calling it psycho-analysis, and knocking it down. The author's concept of psycho-analysis is too fantastic to justify wasting space on it here. On the physiological side the book is cursory, and largely a re-hash of elementary text-book material, not even simplified in language for the layman. It is difficult to see how any serious student, doctor or lawyer—for whom, according to the sub-title, the book is intended—could benefit by reading it.
