Second edition. Endpapers and page ridges foxed, boards lightly soiled. 1965 Hard Cover. A humorous collection of advice on various topics, by the author who also wrote 'How to Get Out of the Rat Race and Live on $10 a Month' and 'Bull Cook and Authentic Historical Recipes and Practices' with his wife Berthe. The latter has somewhat of a cult following, and was described by the NY Times as a wild mix of recipes, unsourced claims and unhinged philosophy that went through at least 15 editions between 1960 and 1970. Herter owned an outdoor goods store that he transformed from his father's dry goods shop. He converted it to a mail order business, and later opened retail outlets. His books were all self-published and sold at these stores. Contents of this work include chapters with such diverse titles as: When to Star Sex Education in Your Children; The Murder of the United States by a Minority - How It Is Done [an indictment of eugenics]; Birth Control Pills Make the Best Rat Poison the World Has Ever Produced; Sirhan Sirhan Trial a Classic Example of the Failure of Psychiatry; Carbon Monoxide and Its Affect [sic] on Quarrels and Divorce; Sex Crimes and Abnormal Sex Acts Increase in a Direct Ratio to the Availability of Vulgar Magazines; Use Logic and Common Sense with Prescription Drugs. Their Misuse Cannot Only Get You Divorced But Killed as a Fringe Benefit; Venereal Diseases; Irish Marriage Brokers; Check Your Girl for Snoring; Watch Your Words Very Carefully When Talking to Your Wife; Things to Avoid; The Depressing Effect of the National Debt of the United States; If Your Wife Becomes an Alcoholic; Nagging is a Dangerous Sport; The United States is Great for Doctors But Not for Patients.
