Isn't that outdated. It's still funny stuff

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If they wanted to be amused, and especially if they were a parent, they'll like this.

Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't. She astounded me with her delivery. She could turn even a dull sentence into something witty, so this material was really quite funny with her at the microphone.

Any additional comments?

Bombeck's humor still holds up, though not quite as sharply as it did when it was originally written. You'll still get many chuckles out of this.

Definitely a bowl of cherries!

This is classic Erma and classic USA circa 1976. Enjoy in good health!

One caveat: the reader of this book is constantly making excessive mouth noises like she is swallowing and smacking her lips. This is extremely distracting.
