Review: The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands

User Review  - Theresa - Goodreads

I didn't like this book. A) it didn't apply to me (very different kind of woman she is writing about) and B) she only wrote about one kind of woman!!! Why did I read it? I don't know. Why do people stop and look at a car crash? Read full review
