“This is a very useful manual on the Billings Ovulation Method, which is a practical method of family planning for those couples who wish to have a child or to avoid having a child—and to do so without using mechanical methods of contraception or introducing chemicals into their bodies.

What makes this book particularly useful is that it combines Mercedes Wilson's very clear explanation of the way a woman's body works, which any high school student can understand—this, with a sophisticated appendix explaining the physiology and endocrinology of the menstrual cycle.”
