What People are saying about this

H. G. Wells
In a plain and lucid style without any emotional appeals, Mrs. Margaret Sanger sets out the case of the new order against the old. There have been several able books published recently upon the question of Birth Control, from the point of view of a woman's personal life, and from the point of view of married happiness, but I do not think there has been any book as yet, popularly accessible, which presents this matter from the point of view of the public good, and as a necessary step to the further improvement of human life as a whole. I am inclined to think that there has hitherto been rather too much personal emotion spent upon this business and far too little attention given to its broader aspects. Mrs. Sanger with her extraordinary breadth of outlook and the real scientific quality of her mind, has now redressed the balance. She has lifted this question from out of the warm atmosphere of troubled domesticity in which it has hitherto been discussed, to its proper level of a predominantly important human affair.

I am really surprised that the subject could be treated in such an interesting style without losing dignity and intellectual quality. It will take its place with the essays of Havelock Ellis and Dean Inge as a classic.

Mrs. Sanger's book will prove of value in breaking down prejudice and in directing attention to problems of vital importance. It is written in an interesting and spirited manner; it manifests a broad humanitarian outlook; and in general, it is tempered with common sense.
