What: The Salt Lake Tribune reports on the passing of Helen Berry Andelin, LDS mom and author of the now-shocking Fascinating Womanhood.
Quote: "Some of the young girls in my family say, 'I don't like that book,' and she stirred controversy, but her message was the spiritual view on the difference between men and women."
Reaction: If you haven't read or heard of this book, visit this site for a sample. On the surface, it may seem like a ridiculously outdated viewpoint on the role of women. If you delve deeper, you might discover that it contains excellent strategies that teach a woman how to manipulate a man without his knowing. But as the quote above indicates, I think what both men and women should really take away from this book, despite its many flaws, is that it's better to think of your spouse first and yourself second.
