This was a fun source book for me since my current heroine is an agony aunt I read through it uickly because it was research but I'd say it was the kind of book you'd want to dip in and out of I particularly liked that the letters within each topic were arranged chronologically to highlight the way advice changes over time Agony aunts could be tough cookies This was good fun It's Tanith Carey's selection which may well not be representative but agony aunts and uncles from the mid 19th century to the early 60s show themselves uite a refreshing bunch who could be as empathic as they could be brisk although I'd beware of their medical advice They also have a jolly good sense of humour I especially enjoyed the response to someone who wanted to know at what age you should stop climbing trees The small section on parenting small children is markedly ghastly although they seemed to know what an important time for brain development infancy isIncidentally the canoe caution doesn't mention kissing Just alight hearted book of snippets that I pick up every now and then 4 Super amusing D Everyone should read it there's good advice in here about most everything
