Product Description

Review

"In addition to its well-crafted analysis of direct home sales, this book insightfully explores the role of emotion in the social construction of time."


--Amy S. Wharton"professor of sociology, Washington State University, Vancouver" (10/18/2011)"

"With exemplary methods, compelling data, and sophisticated analysis, this revealing study shows us how the temporal and emotional dynamics of work and family reproduce traditional gender roles."
--Michael G. Flaherty"author of The Textures of Time: Agency and Temporal Experience" (11/11/2011)

HASH(0xa5dddd50) out of 5 stars 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.
