B-699. From the introduction: "Middle age is not heralded by an increasing waistline, a few gray hairs, a double chin, a spot of baldness, lines in the face, or crowsfeet under the eyes..." (p. [3]). The author, a former Associate Medical Officer for the U.S. Induction and Recruiting Service, goes on to cover such topics as "Men at 40, and the Prostate Myth," "Fallacies About the Menopause," and the age-old question "Are Middle-Aged Women Less Attractive Than Men?" The latter seventeen pages reprint letters seeking advice from Cauldwell with headings like "A Failure at 35" and "Unwanted Wife." OCLC locates four separately catalogued copies as of November, 2019, at UC Davis, the Smithsonian, Northwestern, and Kansas, with an additional copy at the Huntington catalogued as part of a larger collection.
