Demian's Thoughts: This book was marketed as a party game, and it still serves surprisingly well as one. While not an interactive narrative gamebook in the same sense as the authors' Consider the Consequences, the game of answering yes/no questions in order to get a personal analysis from the book is still surprisingly effective at getting a room full of friends laughing... and at least some of the observations can be spot-on. Obviously, the book is quite dated -- 1930's ideas of gender roles, or indeed everyday life, were a bit different from today's; however, this only adds to the amusement value. If you can find a copy of this novelty, it still offers quite a bit of fun.
