This is a husband. He may look complicated, but he is in fact very simple. He runs on sausages and beer.

If you have ever looked at your husband and wondered ‘What on earth is he for?’ then this book will help you get to grips with him. Understanding him fully takes patience, and a lot of head-scratching, but with the help of this simple, large-text guide by Ladybird you will soon be speaking his language.

As the book helpfully explains – “The husband likes to do simple repairs, like changing the washer on a tap. Afterwards he likes to talk at great length about what a struggle it was.”

"It’s enough to make Peter and Jane choke on their watercress sandwiches." – The Independent

Do you ever find yourself longing for a simpler time? That time before the horrors of speed-bumps, automated supermarket checkouts and infernal switchboard options; the days when telephones had wires and a reassuring rotating dial, a tweet meant birdsong and Brexit might possibly have meant a new kind of breakfast cereal?

Fear not, for you are not alone. What you need are the new manuals for our times, simple primers for the everyday predicaments we find ourselves in.

Dear friend, what you need is a Ladybird.

“Very funny”

This is a hilarious take on the old ladybird books explaining how husbands work.
Everyone who's read it can relate to it. Even the list of other books in the series is funny.
