Book Excerpt: 
. . .IN the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns—and turns—and turns!

There are lots of "sure cures" for love, but the quickest and surest is—another love.

If there were only two women and one man in the world, the man would marry the brunette and then spend the rest of his life peeping over her shoulder and trying to flirt with the blonde.

A woman always embalms the corpse of a dead love; a man wisely cremates it, and plants a new love in the ashes.

A fool and her money are soon courted.

A woman's pity for a man who loves her against her will may be akin to love; but a man's pity for a woman who loves him without his permission is a twin brother to boredom.

Marriage is the miracle which affords a woman a chance to gratify her vanity, pacify her family, mortify her rivals, and electrify her friends, all at the same time. Marriage is sweet![28]

Love is what incites the caveman to drag a woman. . . Read More

I read it a while ago, so it is hard to remember my first reaction, but this story has at least stuck in my mind. I remember being intrigued by it and having the desire to purchase it upon finishing it.

A husband is a lover with his nerve removed. A Guide to Men by Helen Rowland is a humorous book that is guaranteed to put both sexes in stitches. I found myself laughing out loud as I read this refreshing guide to the differences of the sexes. Marriage, divorce, children and even death are served...more

I thought it was witty and made me think. Others are taking this book the wrong way. Obviously the larger the group youre making statements about, the more sweeping said statements will be. Read the book as its intended and youll enjoy yourself

Brains and beauty are an impossible combination in a woman. Not necessarily impossible to find but impossible to live with.

MeToo ....?. B R I L L I A N T ! Not recommended for the insecure modern day weasels .

Do not take this one seriously if you do it wont be fun and it can be very fun, the audiobook is on spotify!

Very funny, with poignant insights.

Some of these little aphorisms are zingers, but nearly all of them are stunningly sexist. She seems to be something of an equal opportunity offender, though. Much is made of men being dogs (yawn) and women being either poor tired spinsters or conniving clawed sneaks-- and everything is everyone's...more

An old school classic. Some truth between the lines; some outdated, some very current.
