This authoritative and useful 120-page manual is for the guidance of those who counsel women with an unwanted pregnancy. Editor Robert R. Wilson, when an undergraduate at the University of North Carolina, organized a symposium of social workers and physicians that forms the basis for this book. Wilson now directs the pioneering Human Sexuality Information and Counseling Service at the university.

The foreword by David R. Mace, PhD, summarizes the book and sets its philosophical tone. "... those who counsel women with problem pregnancies have no right to inject their own views, wishes, or preconceptions into the picture.... In no area of counseling is it more imperative to be non-judgmental...." The book tries to aid the counselors who converse with women in such a way as to establish a course of action for them and to assist them in carrying out their decision.

The book succeeds. Chapter 1, by Bruce
