KIRKUS REVIEW

America's Cookbook, America's Garden Book, now America's Housekeeping Book -- the three together form an excellent reference shelf for every homemaker. The new volume starts out with choosing a home, goes on from that to budgeting your time so as to get the most out of life, and then proceeds to chart a course of efficient management of the home, methods, operation and management, handling of the employees (though this is not intended for the large income group so much as for the moderate income group). Virtually every phase of household routine is covered, and the book is straight factual information, with lots of helpful, constructive advice, and the book is straight factual information, with lots of helpful, constructive advice, and covers not only daily and weekly routine, but all the emergency circumstances that arise. The one section to which I take exception is that dealing with money management. Better omit budget programs than include such sketchy ones, with so little explanation or definition.
