This book is a great book for getting some handy hints to help with everything from how to wash your clothes effectively to travel tips and everything in between. Initially I found this book confronting because I felt as if the women in this book were telling me that the way that I was had been doing these simple household chores was wrong. When I realised that this wasn’t the case I could read it through a different mindset so it became more enjoyable to read. This is the sort of book that the reader can pick and choose what they want to read and the order in which they wish to read it. Certainly an interesting and fascinating book to read.
