How to Be a Good Husband


  • One of the first self-help books written in 1930!
  • Little guide to make you chuckle 
  • Great gift for those who need a bit of guidance   

Being a good husband is not an easy one…This little guide was written for the middle classes of the 1930's who were reading one of the first modern self-help books. Illustrated with contemporary line-drawings, it contains timelessly true advice, for example: Don't squeeze the tube of toothpaste from the top instead of from the bottom. This is one of the small things of life that always irritates the wife. Don't think that your wife has placed waste-paper baskets in the rooms as ornaments. Don't tell your wife lies. A woman has wonderful intuition for spotting even minor departures from the truth. Do cultivate the habit of coming down to breakfast with a smile. Remember that as the head of the house, it is your duty to see that everyone starts the day in an atmosphere of happiness. Don't criticise the food at your own table when you are entertaining and especially refrain from doing so before the servants.
