No growing pains have ever been more hilarious than those suffered loudly by the riotous Gilbreth clan. First, there are a dozen red-haired, freckle-faced kids to contend with. Then there's Dad, a famous efficiency expert who believes a family can be run just like a factory. And there's Mother, his partner in everything except discipline. How they all survive such escapades as forgetting Frank, Jr., in a roadside restaurant or going on a first date with Dad in the backseat or having their tonsils removed en masse will keep you in stitches. You can be sure they're not only cheaper, they're funnier by the dozen.… (més)

Fun, loving remembrances of a father who liked to live large. ( )

Most recent review:
Gilbreth and his sister do a fantastic job at capture the chaos of a huge family. The parenting style of at least one parent wouldn't pass muster these days, and neither would some of the antiquated comments about race. But if you grew up with grandparents like mine the first is given some context and the second I can self-edit out.

One thing that I didn't quite appreciate the last time that I read it, was the way the Gilbreths slyly draw you in until you feel like one of the group... they teach you in-joke after in-joke until you hit the last couple of chapters and you suddenly are hit with all the jokes, one after another, and you can't stop the amusement. It was a brilliant feat of writing.

1st review:
Welcome to my life, with less swearing and several less kids. But boy did they capture the excitement and adventures of a large family growing up. ( )

The parents of Frank and Ernestine make an interesting couple. She is a psychologist and he is a motion study engineer. Together, they work to make processes more efficient for various business and by default, their twelve children are efficiency aficionados. Why twelve children? As Mr. Gilbreth explains, they were "cheaper by the dozen." It's a running joke in the family. Be forewarned, the family has a lot of running jokes.
An example of making a process more efficient: Mr. Gilbreth evaluated surgeons during operations to make their procedures go smoother.
While the bulk of Gilbreth's story is humorous, it must be said that at the time of writing no one thought it politically or socially incorrect to call a Native American a "red indian."
I don't want to give too much away, but the birth control scene was hysterical. I couldn't help but laugh out loud more than once. And I don't think it is a spoiler alert to say that I loved the ending. Mother Gilbreth steps fearlessly into her husband's shoes and carries on the family business. Brilliant. ( )

Cheaper by the Dozen is a tongue in cheek memoir by Frank Gilbreth Junior and his sister Ernestine Gilbreth Carey. These siblings were just two of the twelve children that their parents raised. Frank Gilbreth Senior and his wife, Lillian Moller Gilbreth were efficiency experts who raised their 12 children in a large house in Montclair, New Jersey. The book takes a humorous look at the unusual child raising methods of Frank Gilbreth. He believed in a hands on approach and in working closely with his wife in order to guide his children. They worked well together even though they were polar opposites.

Frank believed that his efficiency methods that were effective in the workplace could also work well with the children. He taught his children to type, speak different languages, learn math shortcuts and, to readily allow themselves to be guinea pigs for many of his ideas. Although his methods often fell short or ended in hilarity, one thing that came across clearly was the love both of these parents had for each other and their family.

Cheaper by the Dozen is an enjoyable and nostalgic look back at yesteryear. The children were raised during the 1920’s and the book was originally published in 1948. I have seen the charming film version starring Clifton Webb and Myrna Loy. Apparently many of the events described in the book actually did happen, but the authors used artistic license to enhance the episodes. It is interesting to note that Lillian, in addition to giving birth and raising these children, had a degree in psychology, and worked as one of the first female engineers. I found Cheaper By the Dozen to be a pleasurable read and I look forward to picking up the sequel, Belles on Their Toes in the future. ( )
