From the Foreword by Dr. Charles Francis Potter, founder of The First Humanist Society of New York: "If ever a book was sorely needed, this one is. My experience as a preacher has revealed to me the appalling number of unhappy women over forty. Some are simply at a loss what to do with themselves when their children need them no longer. Others are distraught, panicky, morbid and even desperate. To all such women, in fact to all women, [the author], from her own experience and her store of common sense, offers confidential advice of a valuable type. She understands women." (My favorite chapter title: "Modern Nerves.")
