When I initially began my read, I was somewhat amused.
My amusement turned into disappointment, however, as the pages went on.
The book seems to have been written with an 18th Century, Georgian or Victorian reader in mind. In the US, a 19th century backwoods hillbilly or Mormon audience is the only thing that comes to mind.
The book is titled "The Illuminated Discipline manual", but there is little in terms of Illumination - rather, the expectation that the entire family will merrily live under orders of the Man of the House, children and wife happily acepting corporal punishment for whimsical "faults".
Corporal punishment is considered to be staple, but little is described other than "spanking and whipping".
All in all, I consider the manual to shed very little light on Discipline, let alone Illuminated. I must admit I feel I wasted my money.
