The blurb of the book says:

Cover: The cover spells humour.

Writing: Simple. But there are several grammatical and typographical errors.

Story: The book actually comprises of 14 situations, rather than stories. And at the end of each episode there is advice and counseling. Looking at the cover I was expecting humour with lessons.  The book is a kind of advisory for married couples but aimed primarily at wives. But I was wrong. I finished the book in one sitting and didn’t really enjoy it.

I give “Dear Wife, Your Husband is not a Superhero” 2 stars on a scale of 5.
