["Time Out for Happiness"] is a book written with love by the son of a remarkable mother…. [It resembles the other Gilbreth family chronicles], except that this book concentrates on Lillian Moller Gilbreth, the mother of this extensive brood….
The author tells amusing anecdotes about his mother in all phases of her life and it all points up what a wonderfully unique person she is.
This book is written with a tender touch and great affection about a woman who surely deserves no less. I recommend it for the pure joy and honest entertainment of it all.
