The Best Dad is a Good Lover
This title caught me off guard, which probably says more about me than the actual book. It also raised eyebrows with my fellow library pals. Sorry to those hoping for something more salacious. Regardless, this book is actually not too bad, especially if you consider the era in which it was written. The basic mission of fathers is to love the mothers of your children (and get involved with those kids). It does scream 1970s with the reference to “women’s lib.” Clearly, this is a book with a fixation on traditional marriage roles. Check out the advice for the woman wanting to work whose husband won’t “let” her.
In other news, the processing is horrible, as you can see from my attempts to cover various identifying labels. In addition to all the labeling, there are stamps everywhere: title page, verso, inside front and back, and several pages in the regular text. Seriously. Less is more, people.
