Man help book – How to keep house: The lost art of being a man
And if there’s no chance of him taking up beauty routines, maybe Dad needs some brushing up on helping Mum out? Allen and Unwin have released this guide to everything a man needs to know around the house. The title ?The lost art of being a man: How to keep house? is beyond appropriate for this straightforward book. A manual on the finer points of housekeeping such as cleaning showers and ovens, to more manly pursuits including replacing a window pane or repairing a washing machine, Sam Martin has it covered. Throughout the book there is constant reminder that organization is the key, with keeping tidy high on the list in most chapters. The humorous approach and empathy with the (more than likely disorganized) male reader makes for an engaging and entertaining read.
