Helpful Score: 2
The quotes at the beginning of each chapter are the best part of this book. They're from various sources, from Benjamin Franklin to the Bible. The other good part is the idea of being a Family Manager, which changed some ways that I view homemaking.

The author heavily promotes her business of Certified Family Manager Coaches throughout the book, and uses many case studies from her business.

Overall, I thought that this book lacked depth. If you are choosing one book on home management, I'd recommend that you look elsewhere. If this is one of many, you may pull a few good ideas from it.
