Believe it or not this book is still in circulation! All they need to do is just change the title to Pro Football Heroes of Yesterday. I remember these guys from when my dad talked football to my clueless pre-teen self.
Quite a few wedding books have been crossing my desk lately. I have a kid getting married soon, so I am all about checking out wedding books. My own wedding a thousand years ago was pretty simple. i don’t even remember if anyone made a speech.
The New How to Keep House Gillies 1968 Since it is 1968, I doubt this can be considered “new”. This is pretty comprehensive covering budgeting, cleaning, entertaining, and a host of other housewife duties. The cartoon illustrations are on par
Grandma Online: A Grandmother’s Guide to the Internet
Submitter: It’s a pretty tacky title (at least any more) and I got a laugh at some of the content:
An Adult Guide to Coming to Terms With Your Parents
Back in the day, transactional analysis was all the rage. I even had a college professor that spoke the “I’m okay, you’re okay” speak all the time. It was awful. Everything was a discussion of my inner child, ego, and id. I hated that class. You couldn’t ask this guy when a paper was due without enduring a mini psychotherapy session.

I get the feeling that the next level of dieting for these authors is to simply sniff the food and call it a meal.
