If there's one thing that irks me and there are many it's that wonderful old books like this one have been dumped in the "kiddie lit" pile and are considered unsuitable for adults.

Good God, must we have violence, graphic sex, and non-stop profanity in every paragragh in order for a book to be worthy of our attention? This is the story of a family a big one and of the two fascinating, unusual people who created it. It's also a look at the early years of the 20th century and how they changed life for all time. We think of it as a lazy, nostalgic time when people were rooted in tradition. In reality, it was a time of rapid change when Americans were excited about the future and their growing importance in the world.

Industries were waking up to new ways of doing things that increased productivity. Increased productivity meant lower costs, which meant that the average citizen could enjoy products like automobiles that had been rich men's toys only a few years before.

It was a time of prosperity and optimism. Efficiency engineers Frank and Lillian Gilbreth were at the forefront of this movement.

Like all engineers, they tended to run their home by the same principles that guided their profession. As their oldest daughter points out in her humorous-but-incisive introduction, a great deal of regimentation is absolutely necessary in a large family or chaos reigns.

Not that there wasn't plenty of chaos anyway, and most of it is hilarious. Lillian Gilbreth was of the generation called the "New Woman. With her proud husband supporting her, this gentle but strong woman took her place in a profession that is still largely male-dominated.

And she raised a houseful of children while she was doing it! It's also the story of a successful marriage which tragically ended too soon. I love the contrast between the bombastic self-made man and the quiet girl from the wealthy California family.

Each brought strengths into the partnership and they respected and supported each other both personally and professionally. Yes, this is a book that would not raise a blush on the cheek of a modest young lady and good luck finding one!

But it's also a down-to-earth account of family life in an era when there were no "experts" telling people how to raise their children. The story of two very different people and how they loved and taught their large brood is not just entertaining, but educational.

I loved this book as a child and I enjoyed reading it again. It's a true classic. I recently had a writing assignment "How a book or movie influenced how I lived my life.

Granted, in no way did I want twelve children, but I was inspired to live life more efficiently, trying to find "The Best Way to Do Things. Her ideas of "What is the best use of my time" inspired me to return to college and I thank her for that. Even if you don' read the book I recommend checking Lillian Gilbreth out on Wikipedia and be in awe, as I was, of her achievements. As much fun as it was back in the s, with the inventor parents teaching their children everything from ergonomics the parents' speciality and morse code and astronomy, and the twelve children providing chaos and wreckage and high spirits.

But my goodness, couldn't the publishers of the Kindle version have paid someone a few quid to proofread a book that is obviously the product of optical character recognition? A couple of days' work would have made this perfect. The grammatical howlers and misspellings caused by the technology used, and the lack of a quick proofing, really take from the edition.
