I purchased these books a few days before my daughter's wedding and presented them at the rehearsal dinner. The couple began reading aloud from them, amusing guests who nodded at the truth of each statement despite the old-fashioned scenarios. Someone made off with the bride's copy and she phoned from her honeymoon to beg for another.

Excellent companion to the Husband version. Loved this little book of tidbits, advice and instruction. Also like to leave these books setting here and there neatly around the house for guests to flip through and enjoy. Fun read, while being very useful even in today's culture.

I love, love, loved this "mini" book as did my mom. The old-fashioned advice is simply charming, and it is the perfect addition to a wedding shower gift.

It's a very little book. But it's cute. I enjoyed the read and it is a charming addition to my "50's Housewife" book collection.

I purchased this along with the Good Husband book as a gift. I expected it to be a normal sized book, but it one of the small gag-gift type books. It may be charming, but the size makes it very difficult to read.

I was very disappointed.
