Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"Her audience is everyone who has ever married, had children, gotten to middle age, owned a dog or a duck."
DALLAS TIMES HERALD
In this book Erma comes out--out of the kitchen--with these gems:
No longer will she be the only woman on the block to wear a slip under a see-through sweater, or feel guilty if the sun sets on an empty crockpot, nor will she care that she flunked her paper towel test. Our Erma is on her way to becoming a sub-total woman.

More About the Author

Beloved for her wry yet warm look at family life, Erma Bombeck was America's favorite humorist at the time of her death in 1996. Ten of her 13 books, including Forever, Erma, appeared on the New York Times best-seller list. She claimed her first fiction writing was the weather forecast in the Dayton Herald. Her favorite food was pasta, and her hobby was dust.

Erma Bombeck is on a quest to perfect herself in this book. As she searches for the greatsest self-help book she can find, she searches to become more sexy, smarter, thinner, and all together more perfect. I don't know if she reaches her goal, but she does decide to like herself anyway! This book is hilarious! "I don't want to participate in any sport that has an ambulance at the bottom of the hill". Enjoy this wonderful, humorous book . . . and take a second look on what it means to be happy!

9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 16, 2000
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Erma Bombeck chronicles a year in the 80s when she devoted her time and energy to self-help books, like the "Total Woman."
A reader both feels sympathy for Erma's somewhat bumbling attempts to become what these books demand of her, and for her harried husband, who must have woken up every morning to wonder who his wife is today. She is pressed by an apparently lunatic friend to read "The Sub-Total Woman", attempting to act sexy and wifely to save her marriage, but only ends up weirding out her husband and burning up her nightgown.
Other chapters involve Transcendental Meditation, thrift, the guests from hell, astrology guilt, other people's middle-aged pregnancies, jogging, and the ultimate frontier: satisfaction. You'll want to jeer at the bizarre ladies at the end of this, but you definitely won't regret buying it.

A long time ago, I really enjoyed Erma Bombeck's books but I am in a different space and didn't enjoy them as much but that is just my experience and yours could be different. Try it. You might enjoy it.

As always an enjoyable read. Raising a family with self help books and guilt... For those of us in our senior years, we can remember it well. Now we can laugh about it.

It was wonderful to read about Erma Bombeck's experiences, thoughts and daily trials as a mother and wife and to realise it's all applicable in today's busy life as well. Nothing much has changed - I'm sure every woman can relate to this. The humor and empathy that shine through each story is absolutely heart warming. I loved this!

but not as good as her other books. I love Erma Bombeck and admire her humor and her humanist (is that a word?)
