How To Help Your Husband Make More Money So You Can Be a Stay-at-Home Mom

How To Help Your Husband Make More Money So You Can Be a Stay-at-Home Mom. Warner. Jan. 2003. c.158p. ISBN 0-446-69016-3. pap. $12.95. SELF-HELP

Don’t let the title mislead you–this is actually a career guide, albeit a poorly organized one, with precious little how-to information. From home, women support their husbands through “Team Work,” a fuzzy, poorly defined concept that includes fortifying his career. Watson, a stay-at-home mother in California, offers advice on resumes, networking, and job hunting, ranging from the obvious to the nonsensical (e.g., middle managers and executives should consider courses in Internet marketing as “the ticket to moving up to some of the hottest positions with their higher salaries”). The male perspective is notably absent. Consider instead these focused titles: Richard Nelson Bolles’s self-assessment bible, What Color Is Your Parachute?; Martin Yate’s Knock ‘Em Dead, a job search guide; and Christina Baglivi Tinglof’s The Stay-at-Home Parent Survival Guide. Not recommended.
