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.

The continued adventures and misadventures of the Cheaper by the Dozen family. Life is very different now in the rambling Gilbreth house. When the yougest was two and the oldest eighteen, Dad died and Mother bravely took over his business. Now, to keep the family together, everyone has to pitch in and pinch pennies. The resourceful clan rises to every crisis with a marvelous sense of fun--whether it's battling chicken pox, giving the boot to an unwelcome boyfriend, or even meeting the President. And the few distasteful things they can't overcome--like castor oil--they swallow with good humor and good grace.
