I expected more. Feb. 25 2014
By C. L. Nganga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is more about the history and origin of the home party and direct marketing business. I had expected it to be more about how to actually set up a home party, from the time one arrives at the Host's home, until one wraps up for the evening. It was not about that at all. It was more of a book from a historical perspective. It was far different than what I had expected.
