Item Description...

According to radio psychologist and provocateur Laura Schlessinger, most unhappy marriages are alike—-and can be changed in just minutes a day. In this companion to Dr Laura's best-selling The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, women are the source of the problem and have the power of the solution. Wives, brainwashed by "feminism" and politically correct psychotherapy, have become dismissive of their husbands, denying them tenderness, pillow talk, admiration, and dinner on the table, says Schlessinger. Her prescription is deceptively simple. A wife must stop defining her power in terms of possessions, position, and independence. Instead, she should remember that "men are simpler in their emotional needs" (they are demoralized by not feeling cared for) and exercise her "awesome power to change her man and her marriage." The payoff? A husband who will "die for us"--and take out the garbage without being asked. Schlessinger coaxes readers in attitude adjustment through an assessment of their marriage and dozens of specific suggestions about compliments, conversation, counting blessings and lacy underwear. She is at her best in asking readers to explore anti-male bias in advertising and Internet jokes. Her tart commentary is interspersed with journal exercises, testimonial transcripts from her radio show, and listener letters. The book's central ideas (devotion robust listening, sensuality) are too often eclipsed by its gender typecasting of both partners and frequent frying of the feminist idea of mutuality in marriage. Both men and women will surely bristle at the book's anachronistic assumptions: for example, a silk teddy manipulates men and nothing spells loving like something from the oven. Dr. Laura's self-promotion and the defense and repetition of her earlier ideas also undermine her message. Still, it must be noted that many of her listeners and readers find Schlessinger's ten-minute marriage manager to be hopeful and helpful. --Barbara Mackoff

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Learn from it  Nov 10, 2005
Dr. Laura reminds women who are married that they need to look at what their priorities are or should be. The book will not solve every problem a marriage may have, but it deals directly with some of the most common problems of today and provides possible solutions. It is specifically aimed at problems women can deal with in relating to men, and so is primarily targeted at a female audience. For those who want to strengthen their marriage this book can be helpful as a general guide. Another great, and practical title that I recommend is "Can We Live 150 Year" by M. Tombak.
 
Great advice from a very wise woman  Sep 11, 2005
It may be hard for a lot of people to admit, but Dr. Laura Schlessinger has some very good & basic advice for managing relationships. Consider discarding your excess, pointless & misguided pride & anger & learn about the original, historic and very sensible approach to marriage. When women & men realize that they have completely different yet equally important roles to play in marriage, married life can become so much happier & fulfilling for both parties. Another excellent book by Dr. Schlessinger.
 
Right-on, Again!   Sep 5, 2005
Dr. Laura has hands-down followed up "Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" with a first class sequel. It takes guts and wisdom to take on the mutated women's movement. Dr. Laura clearly illustrates just exactly how women really do have much more power over their own lives and over men than the other way around. She demonstrates that it is how they realize and use their power which makes everyone around them miserable or happy - most of all themselves. This is truly THE MOST EQUALITY-BASED BOOK I've read to date. This is what the women's movement was meant to be.

We could have opened history books to learn the same from men or women who've misused power and ended up unhappy or destroyed. But since most never read or learn from history, most are doomed to repeat it, with too many women ending up making themselves miserable by following ancient historical follies promoted by the "modern" women's movement.

Bad advice is so commonly practiced: "Hatred, bad treatment, control, manipulation and abuse of men" is deserved and justified and "will not back fire" on women. Dr. laura illustrates how it works the other way around too, for jerky men. It not only takes someone with real wisdom to illustrate it all like Dr. Laura does so plainly, but someone who can also let-it-fly when the need arises, to protect so many women not only from commonly accepted lies but ultimately from the party most responsible - themselves. Most women I've talked to about this book (who've actually read it all) and it's companion book love them both, and Dr. Laura for writing them.
 
Even God Gives Husband's Advice  Aug 13, 2005
Dr. Laura occasionally gives excellent advice, and I admire her willingness to stand up for what's decent and moral. However, her supposition that husbands do not need a book or advice is almost blasphemous. God created men and women and the institution of marriage, and even He gives instructions to husbands as to how they should treat their wives! God "wrote a book" called the Bible which contains advice for husbands as well as wives because God knows the success of a marriage depends on BOTH parties doing their part.

This book is great for women who are unkind to their husbands. When unkind people change and become kind and considerate to all those with whom they have a relationship, it CAN have an impact on the behavior of others. But this applies not only to women and wives but to men and husbands as well.

Many women are suffering because, after reading all the books they can and doing everything within their power, their husbands do not respond. So the self-doubting and blame continues, and it's needless. The attitude that a successfull and happy marriage rests solely with the wife is detrimental to EVERY marriage.
 
Hello  Jul 1, 2005
First let's talk about the positives:
It talks about male-bashing, which I don't agree with either
she encourages mmore affection on the woman's part....those who are inconsiderate of their husband's feelings
It has some "romantic" (on first glance) views of husbands...how sweet

Now let's get down to why you should buy this book:

Buy this book if you don't mind having sex with your husband even though you're "not in the mood" Look, maybe there are times when BOTH of you guys can work stuff out and make things more enticing for both of you when one is not "in the mood"...but HELLO....she's encouraging all WOMEN to deny their feelings no matter what to please 'her man'

buy this book if you think most men are heros, willing to do anything for their wives, and wives should understand this...and cater to their men because it's their "duty"

Buy this book if you think the feminist movement screwed women over...why? Because it encouraged them to be more independent, free to do whatever the you-know-what they really want to do (i.e. careers, etc.), make money, and to not give in to all gender stereotypes imposed on females by society.

Buy this book if you think woman have a certain "status" to be lady-like: while it's acceptable for men, Dr. Laura thinks woman should not display rudeness (hmm, I suppose it's never ok for a female to be "rude"? I can think of a few situations where speaking up for something can be construed as "being rude"), smoke, act vulgar, or be promiscuous. Of course, it's the women that will encourage their men to be the same way.

Buy this book if you agree that you can either have a family and be a "homemaker" or have a career...not both, no compromise.

Buy this book if you're gay and have decided to become straight and live a good, wholesome married life
