The Book of Household Management by Isabella Beeton

I must frankly own, that if I had known, beforehand, that this book would have cost me the labour which it has, I should never have been courageous enough to commence it. What moved me, in the first instance, to attempt a work like this, was the discomfort and suffering which I had seen brought upon men and women by household mismanagement. I have always thought that there is no more fruitful source of family discontent than a housewife's badly-cooked dinners and untidy ways. Men are now so well served out of doors,--at their clubs, well-ordered taverns, and dining-houses, that in order to compete with the attractions of these places, a mistress must be thoroughly acquainted with the theory and practice of cookery, as well as be perfectly conversant with all the other arts of making and keeping a comfortable home.

Just received the product and having problems. There's no Table of Contents so there's no way to know what the chapters are unless you go page-by-page. Product is slow and when I try to jump to a distant page, I receive the message "Activity Reader is not responding" with options to "Wait" or "Force Close". Not pleased with the workings.
