How to Marry the Man of Your Choice

Margaret Kent, Author Warner Books $14.45 (187p) ISBN 978-0-446-51387-6
A practising lawyer in Miami, Kent also conducts a course that, she claims, has helped over 400 women to become wives since its origination in 1969. The author's detailed tips on male manipulation comprise a howling, humorous success, if not a sure guide to tying the triumphant knot. The chapters deal with each phase of the husband hunt from dressing attractively and looking one's best (including ""dentures if you need them; missing teeth are a turnoff,'') through the happy ending. According to game plan, a woman meeting future in-laws should ``keep your shoes on unless they remove theirs.'' Premarital sex is encouraged, and ways to enhance bedtime are covered extensively: ``Don't expect him to sleep on wet sheets!''; ``Don't store trinkets or money in your underwear!'' Kent's numerous one-liners beg for quotation, but the finale caps them all: a woman must ignore ``dastardly acts'' that her intended may commit as weak attempts to escape matrimony, she says, citing examples of a prospective benedict who slashed his fiancee's car tires, another who moved to Europe and one who brought a date to his weddingall three wound up married anyway.
