[lightly bumped at several corners, stray pencil smudge on fore-edge, contemporary gift inscription (non-authorial) on ffep; jacket shows a bit of wear at extremities, minor tears and dog-earing along top edge, light soiling, browing at flap edges, short diagonal crease at top corner of front flap]. (cartoon illustrations) Humorous "survey" of human behavior, in which the author and his crack team of researchers (a Professor Tewksbury of State University -- which state, the author never found out -- and Al, a guy recruited at a local tavern) discovered "that men sweep crumbs under rugs; boggle at cleaning out attics; refuse to get up and close the window when thunderstorms come at midnight; think their wives can't drive well or make good coffee. Women, on the other hand, interrupt their husband's reading of the paper; sleep with curlers; snore; like hot baths and hate showers."
