While reading this book as a reviewer, the reading was easy to understand, and found that one could reread some of the rules over and over again. They are humorous and thought provoking at the same time.
These rules are almost tongue in cheek, but they are also true on a deeper level. It ultimately comes down to attitude. This book is fun and easy to read, while imparting information for all readers. This book receives a four star rating from this reviewer.

there are some really smart ones! I don¿t have any major issues with my fiancé¿s mother, but if I ever do, I know just where to go for help. The Daughter-in-Law Rules is broken up into very easy to navigate Parts: The Newlywed - On House and Home - Her Beloved Son - Before and After the Baby - Most of All. Each Part has its own smaller sections with pertinent rules. Best yet, it¿s battle-tested. According to the Foreword (written by the author herself) this book was born ¿whenever a bothersome incident would pop into my head, I jotted down longhand, on the back of napkins and any other scraps of paper I could get my hands on, a new strategy for dealing with my MIL. ¿ Though this exercise started off as a tongue-in-cheek coping mechanism, once I began putting a few of these rules into practice, I noticed that my MIL¿s attitude started to shift. I began to see her softer, gentler, more agreeable side ¿¿ The Daughter-in-Law Rules should be given to all brides-to-be by their own mothers or their maid/matron of honor. Preferably when said Mother-in-Law is NOT looking!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
