Let me say first and foremost, I am NOT a fan of Dr Laura. I am vehemently opposed to her views on homosexuality. I was however, amazed at her insights into what is often crippling to men in relationships. She managed to dispel the myth for me that I am able to take whatever comes my way and made me aware of just how wounded I have been in the past by taking some 'slights' to heart. I do not agree with the 'blame the wife' undertones in this audio, but I have to say, she repeatedly touched my sadness and made me more aware.
Very good book, and very good advice. I also enjoyed listening to the author as the narrator.
Okay book with good information but it certainly doesn't cover everything about every husband. Seemed to me that Dr. L focused more on how wives could improve their attitude and didn't address what a wife does with a non responsive husband.
Another great book by doctor Laura. All wives need to listen to this. Now to apply it and have a great marriage.
I found this book to be very one sided , I understand some of her reasoning on certain issues but I think that she forgets that there are two people in a marriage! Over all I think that this book was just ok!
I found this book helpful, and funny, and a great investment of my time. Dr. Laura gets right to her point, and doesn't mince words. I don't always agree with what she says, but the meaning behind this book is to respect and be kind to your loved ones, even if it's not in vogue at the time. Great idea.
[abridged] Fantastic book! I convinced my wife to listen to the book as a birthday present to me. She actually agreed with Dr. Laura and promised to take better care of her husband. Wow!
I enjoyed the audio book. There were a lot of issues that i had never thought of. I recommend it to everyone because it could be useful for men to hear the their thoughts and concerns and being heard. Women can benefit from it because it will help in understanding their men and their emotional needs.
At first, I thought I was listening to a right-wing wacko...... but if you can make it past the harsh attacks and condemnations of all things that might be definable in terms of the feminist movement, there are some golden nuggets on the marital relationship within -- you just need to get through the first couple of chapters to get to the nuggets. Worth the read.
I listed to Dr. Laura when I lived in Seattle. I never found her on the radio on OH. So, I was anxious to reconnect. She has good insight that makes sense ... and is similar to Dr. Phil where she doesn't pull punches and is blunt and too the point. But, sometimes, I wonder about her. She seems to advocate being the stay at home wife ... but yet she has a practice, a business, etc. Seems a little hypocritical.
