If you were around in the 1970s, the name Marabel Morgan will probably ring a bell. (We featured her first book the Total Woman a while back, but I think that post bit the dust years ago in one of our migrations.) She was one of those anti feminists from the 1970s that is all about personal fulfillment. Warning! The personal fulfillment part is from catering to your husband’s every need. Those poor feminists are unhappy because they don’t have a man. I remember my mother commenting that she was some kind of nut when she was on Phil Donahue in the 1970s.
Total Joy is sort of a sequel of Total Woman. In this book, Morgan shares many of the letters and anecdotes of happy women using her method. For a public library, its a weeder just because it is out of date. It is also ridiculous, but that is not a deal breaker in weeding, unfortunately.
I will be under my desk crying for the lack of progress in the last 25 years.
