Description
" Her audience is everyone who has ever married, had children, gotten to middle age, owned a dog or a duck." DALLAS TIMES HERALDIn this book Erma comes out--out of the kitchen--with these gems: No longer will she be the only woman on the block to wear a slip under a see-through sweater, or feel guilty if the sun sets on an empty crockpot, nor will she care that she flunked her paper towel test. Our Erma is on her way to becoming a sub-total woman.

display_description

The #1 New York Times bestseller about one woman's doomed quest for self-improvement by a writer "blessed with the comic equivalent of perfect pitch" (The Boston Globe).


As far as Erma can tell, her life is going well. Her children speak to her, her husband smiles at her, and she's capable of looking in a mirror without screaming. But her friends know better. No matter how happy Erma thinks she is, she's in need of help, and the only way to fulfillment is a ten-foot stack of self-improvement books. From Sensual Needlepoint to Fear of Buying, Erma will try them all.

One book recommends bringing roleplay into the bedroom, so she dresses up in her son's football pads. She tries to meditate but gets stuck in the lotus position. She spends more time in the kitchen but only succeeds in melting her son's retainer. No matter how hard she tries to improve her family life, her schemes keep backfiring. As she soon learns, you may not always be able to fix what's not broken—but with enough self-help books, you can break anything you want.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erma Bombeck including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
