The writing style and ease of read wasn't bad, but the information is very outdated though he still stands by everything in his book. The research everything is based off of is extremely flawed, and has been debunked time and time again. Overall, this bok isn't helpful to anyone unless your mindis already made up.

Contrary to opinions from anti-circumcision activists, this book is WELL researched and WELL written. The author has done a GOOD job researching to make the claims he is making. This book portrays very well the pros and cons of newborn circumcision and is a welcome change from books coming from the anti-circumcision cult. In contrast to anti-circumcision authors who cannot bear to admit any benefits to circumcision, Morris, though in favor of the procedure, is honest enough to also provide the disadvantages and risks. Downside to the book? British spelling of title makes it hard to find in computer searches; also book lacks an index.

This book is one of the most important additions to the literature on circumcision written during the past 10 years. In contrast to the books condemming the practice of circumcision, which are often based on dubious and unsubstantiated claims, this book actually reports on recent scientfic research. It is easy to read, and tells things as they are: that most men in the USA are vey happy about being circumcised. There is also a very insightful chapter on the methods and modus operandus of the antic-circumcision momevent. Reading this chapter - and the book as whole - will reveal to the reader the true nature of the anti-circumcision propaganda. To conclude, Dr Morris, who is a noted medical scientist and lecturer, has written a book which not only refutes most of the claims made by the opponents of circumcision, but also offers valuable information to prospective parents, and those interested in the subject.
