An interesting and insightful but dated look at the duties and skills of the 1960's housewife. Much of the information is still note worthy and relevant to today's busy homemaker.

That being said, the rest of the tips are great. It's a fun and fast read that will get you motivated to clean your house, cook, do stuff with your kids... even do thoes time consuming chores you never wanted to do.

It's a good beginner housekeeping book. Some of the newer tomes can be overwhelming in their details and details and details, not to mention their demands. This book is simple and lovely.
