I have been doing my income taxes this past week so I was in no mood for this title to cross my desk. Seriously? What is the holding library thinking? The purpose of this book is to help those big strong husbands out there to explain the complicated world of money, investing, and insurance. The tone of the book throughout assumes women barely touch money and men know a lot about managing money. This book is how you “teach” your obviously slow witted wife the ins and outs of money. I am sure my mother would have been appalled in 1973, as well as 2011.
As a side note, I did remember as I flipped through this book that women had a hard time getting credit or even the time of day from financial institutions unless hubby co-signed or took care of the bills. Ah the good old days! Take a look at some sample pages (and yes, they are that old and crusty looking).
