Don’t kill your husband!

How Not to Kill Your Husband
Hutchin
1962

Ladies, your husband is a busy man and can’t be responsible to make good health decisions. Your inattention to his health could LITERALLY KILL HIM! Fortunately, this book will save you. This is a book for wives on how to properly monitor and care for your husband’s health through diet, exercise and stress reduction.

Written in the voice of the oh-so-knowledgeable doctor talking about those silly men that we ladies must take care of since they are just a bunch of giant babies. These delicate men need their wives to reduce the stress, cook healthy meals and evidently prevent him from doing stupid things that might hurt him. I guess it is time to add “babysit a grown man” to your list of chores. I am sure all the men out there will love the wife hounding them on everything they do. Naturally, if he chooses to ignore our awesome help and he dies, it will be our fault.

Where is the book for husbands on how not to be a burden and a selfish ingrate for your wife?

A Perfect Figure in 15 Minutes a Day

Debbie Drake’s Easy Way to a Perfect Figure and Glowing Health
Drake
1961

Debbie Drake was featured on our site back in 2011 with this exact book. The book’s condition was pretty sad and my scans weren’t very good. It was also missing a cover and when I found one with the cover intact, I thought it was time for a “do-over.” Debbie was a female version of Jack LaLanne .

The original post had some advice on how to exercise your hair and face. This time I included pictures from Debbie’s advice on how to get up from bed, increase your bust, and spot reduce your waist. You’re welcome.

Discovering a Lovelier You
Craig

If you remember, we have featured a few of these books (because one book just wouldn’t be enough to fix what is wrong with women). Remember how to figure out your man? Or how about finding fulfillment as a woman through crafts?

Today’s selection is about making yourself as pretty as possible. Those crazy women libbers want you to be ugly. There is a bunch of self-esteem messages along with all the beauty tips. Throughout the book, the author advises  that those women libber types don’t know what they are talking about. Every woman wants to look her best!

Who doesn’t want to sit in front of the mirror doing facial exercises to achieve feminine fulfillment?
