FROM BRETT SALKELD RE BOOK REVIEW

I was delighted to see Donald DeMarco's review of our book How far can we go? A Catholic guide to sex and dating (C.L, Feb., 2010, p.31). DeMarco understands our project well and highlights aspects of the work that will convey to readers exactly what kind of book they might be buying and why it will be useful to them.

I had to write, however, to point out that the review contains a not-insignificant misquotation. The review applauds our distinction between Natural Family Planning and contraception and quotes page 94 as saying: "NFP alters one's lifestyle to accommodate the nature of sex, while artificial contraception alters the nature of one's lifestyle." It should read: "NFP alters one's lifestyle to accommodate the nature of sex, while artificial contraception alters the nature of sex to accommodate one's lifestyle" (emphasis added). Those three words make for quite a different sentence. We are, in any case, thankful for the great review.
