Overview

They love their husbands, but...

Will Trailer is a super-achiever on the baseball diamond but at home? Not so much, according to his gorgeous movie star wife.
Efficiency expert Howard Hopkins has just retired. His wife married him for better and for worse--but not for 24-hours-a-day.
Gordo Canholme would procrastinate breathing if he could, but will he ever get the new baby's room ready? Not without HTS, according to his very pregnant wife.

Husband Training School is the creation of former Marine Corps Drill Instructor, Robin Aguirre. When their wives enroll Will, Howard and Gordo as new students, Robin, the survivor of two divorces and hardened by years of experience at HTS, is ready for anything the most improvement-resistant husbands of the 21st Century can dish out.

She thinks. ;-)

"A fun, quick read! I had planned on reading this book next month on vacation, but I opened it today for a quick peek and couldn't put it down once I started. Three husbands whose exasperated wives are ready to give them the boot are forced to go to a training school for husbands. Once there, their cluelessness proves to be the worst the instructors have ever seen. Colorful characters, funny dialogue, and a quick pace make this a very enjoyable read."

OMG, this book is hysterical! I had to stop in my tracks and remind myself that the author didn't know MY husband, because she nailed his behavior with a resounding THWAK! This book had me giggling from the first page. I adored everything about it. It was ice-cream for my marriage (I love him, by the way, but he DOES need to go to HTS). Seriously, read this book, and have FUN finding your favorite worst husband/boyfriend characteristic--and CHEER when..well, I don't want to give the story away.

Wonderful! But.....I wonder....am I like that? No, it's those other guys. A slashing satire that dissects the male psyche. Ah,well, I think I'll go watch some sports. As long as my wife doesn't hear about HTS.

Laughs from Page 1 until the end and I couldn't stop turning pages. The hilarious woebegone "pupils" reminded me of all the complaints I've heard from my girl friends about the men in their lives.
I dread the day Ruth writes Wife Training School and I find out about myself and my friends! Even so, if she does, I'll be at the front of the line buying a copy.

Thoroughly delightful! Laugh out loud funny. A great book to read any time or place when you need an extra smile. Enjoy.

A quick, fun read that you can easily finish in one setting. I had planned on reading this book next month on vacation, but I opened it today for a quick peek and couldn't put it down once I started. Three husbands whose exasperated wives are ready to give them the boot are forced to go to a training school for husbands. Once there, their cluelessness proves to be the worst the instructors have ever seen. Colorful characters, funny dialogue, and a quick pace make this a very enjoyable read.
