really liked it
Read in November, 2008

I really enjoyed reading this book, although toward the end it seemed to slow down a little. It's founded on the premise of the many men who've attributed successful lives and careers to their wives, and suggests it's not just lip-service. The author discusses and studies the effects women have on their husbands and suggests opportunities for improvement. It's nice to read something sometimes that validates my decision to stay home and raise my kids, while supporting my husband's career - and this book does it like no other I've read so far. It very much glorifies the decision while taking a modern perspective as opposed to the 1950's housewife image.
