In "Rings Around Us" Ernestine Gilbreth Carey … tells us something of her own family life. It has been considerably less complicated than that of her parents….

The Careys' married life followed a fairly normal pattern, but the normal pattern can be very amusing and Mrs. Carey makes the most of it….

"Rings Around Us" is not a memorable book, but it is warm and light-hearted. The proper adjective for it probably is pleasant.
