Ok if you don't have small kids or pets
This book has good ideas if you have an adult only and pet free home. If you have small children or pets living in the house most of the techniques can not be used due to various safety issues as the author warns. Otherwise that it is rather funny and easy to read.
Kinda cute but....
Many of the ideas are little more than old spouse's tales. Regarding some of the pest control methods, please see this paper: http://digitalcommons.unl.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1030&context=vpc14
An Enchanting Read
I gave away my first copy of this book and have started buying more copies to give away as gifts. It is an intriguing introduction to organic gardening and housekeeping. The author's creativity and sense of humor make it a fun book to refer to over and over again. Loved it!
It has some good tips
The book did have some useful tips. I felt that she used some scare tactics in order to get her point across about doing things more naturally. She mentioned her sources but I kept wondering if some of the things she mentioned were a one time thing or if they were really potentially harmful (ie: chemicals and such). Like I mentioned, the book does have some useful tips and I learned a couple of things that I didn't already know.
Man's Best Friend
What great aid and funny read for those of us guys who don't have lots of experience or love of household duties. (I was drafted, so I won't comment on everyone else's excuse.)
