This memoir picks up where Cheaper By the Dozen left off. It is Lillian coping with the death of her husband and carrying on both the family tradition and the business. The same whimsical attitude prevails throughout as they cope with growth and maturation and ultimately with success. It is a heartwarming memoir that must be read contiguously with Cheaper By the Dozen. Both are books that I now wish that I had read in high school, or at least after taking a college courses in motion and time study. And I certainly should have read them while teaching college courses in management, as I used the Gilbreths books on motion study as references in the curriculum.

I've always loved the book, "Cheaper By the Dozen", but I didn't know there was a sequel until I ran across the movie version on TV a year or so ago. Now I wish I had known about it before, as this book picked up right where CBtD left off, and continues the story of the Gilbreth family after their father dies.
