Have you been dissed by dust? Does the thought of cooking dinner turn your stomach instead of turn you on? Are you uncertain as to which is the functional end of a broom? Have you been told that you're short on housekeeping skills? Well, don't just stand there - get TALL!

Mopping Tall - The Hubby's Guide to Housework and Other Dangerous Jobs is just what you need to transform yourself from a domestic doormat into a He-man of Home Management. Mopping Tall is an irreverent, informative look at the world of housekeeping and beyond. It is written especially for the novice househusband, particularly those of us who have been victims of the employment crunch.

Mopping Tall will help to brighten your day as well as your bathroom bowl. You'll learn many of the facets of domestic superintendence including washing, cooking, cleaning, and, yes, ironing. With this book and some practice, you'll soon be laughing at those tasks that used to send chills down your spine, such as changing closets and washing windows. In addition, Mopping Tall provides you with other valuable information on topics such as time management and dealing with your in-laws, a commodity that cannot be measured in terms of a price tag.

Real men do housework, most notably in these changing times of yesterday's traditions on a collision course with today's realities. Why not join in the fun? Grab this book (uh, don't forget to pay for it) and your favorite cleaning utensil. It's time to start MOPPING TALL!
