Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Don'ts for Wives (Hardcover)
"Don't take your husband on a laborious shopping expedition and expect him to remain good-tempered throughout. If you want his advice on some special dress purchase, arrange to attend to that first, and then let him off. Men, as a rule, hate indescriminate shopping."
Highly amusing little book - written in all seriousness in 1913 but very Cholmondley-Warner-esque in its outdated attitudes. This book provided many gems for some light-hearted ribbing in my groom's speech when I got married.
Also check out How to be a Good Wife, which is a later derivative of this book, reworded but with new material.
