  • Authis
Nothing belongs to its own time as much as humor, and this odd book, considered wildly witty in its day, is now more a curiosity than a laugh-out-loud blockbuster. Nevertheless, the patient reader can uncover many gems, such as the droll comment that women who think they're being worshipped from afar are more often being ignored from afar. :)
  • Xinetan
Mr. Thurber and Mr. White wrote a very amusing and rich satire on this basic of human conditions. In John Updike's foreword, he is correct in stating that this little gem of a book is quite phallocratic in its assumptions and has misogynistic tendencies. It was created all in good fun by two men in their early thirties and should be viewed as a product of its times (1929). This is very tame stuff in relation to present-day material, but still worth your time if you enjoy witty, nonsensical compositions. There's a good reason this baby is still kicking around eight decades after its initial publication. The book is a quick, light read by two pros.
  • Reighbyra
Everyone should read some Thurber.
  • Andriodtargeted
Hilarious book, written in the 1920's. Very tongue in cheek. James Thurber teams up with E.B. White. They had fun writing this. A great read.
  • Jeronashe
This is a gently satirical book which will not offend delicate sensibilities. It's a tickler, not a knee-slapper, and it didn't even cause a scandal when it was published (I believe in the 1920's). Its mock-scientific approach is meant to make us chuckle, and it does.
  • Cenneel
Funny, short, and persuasive. A great Thurber read. (He's the guy who wrote the short story "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty," but don't blame him for the mess of a film by the same name.
  • Zorve
If I had been aware of the culture of James Thurber's day it would have been of greater interest. The chapters I did comprehend were really funny. He is a good writer.
I expected to like it more than I do.
