This collection of essays observes the perils of motherhood, wifehood, selfhood, and other assorted challenges. Since its publication in 1957, it has sold millions of copies and has been adapted into a Broadway play, a film, a TV series, and now an audiobook. Jean Kerr's parodies of the clichéd 1950s prescription for glamorous or maternal feminine behavior still resonate today as we enter the 21st century.

    " I was given this book as a gift for my birthday. Having seen the Doris Day movie that the book was based on I knew that I would enjoy it. Unfortuately, I had a lot of other books piled up to read and it took me a little while to get to it. I did eventually read it and found it very enjoyable and funny. I especially got a kick out of the author's thoughts on raising children. Sadly, the pressure I felt to get it read did take away part of the joy of reading it for me. I need to go back and watch the Doris Day movie again! "

    " I believe the short stories in this book were originally published as magazine articles. This means they're full of jokes and references that were very current at the time but are now just very dated. There were some funny bits, but as I am not a mother, playwright, wife of a critic, 1960's housewife, or New Yorker, a lot of it went over my head. Meh. "

    " Funny especially for the dated commentary yet the children's antics are timeless. "

    " I found this while skimming through the used books at the Capitol Flea Market...I had always heard of it but, never read it. It is cute and full of loads of funny stories of motherhood, dieting and the life of NYC in the 50's and 60's. "
