I am a big fan of the I Hate to Cook Book, having read a friend's dog-eared family copy over and over as a student. I subsequently obtained my own copy, and then years later started looking for other Bracken books. The advice is sage for its time, and much of it is still valid today. Not as much of a novelty as the I Hate to Cook Book, simply because her crisp humor is not entirely new for me anymore. The illustrations are, as to be expected, perfectly suited to the writing. Worth buying if you can find a used copy, as I did.

this book is a fun read but you can also learn about manners. the author has a lot of good info to offer - some of it too dated to be useful but not all, by far - and it's just flat out enjoyable to read. don't miss it.
