Having listened to Dr. Laura on the radio I had been wanting to read one of her books. But the experience of reading the book is like looking in the mirror after a long summer road trip without air-conditioning. I didn't like who I saw. This paperback was conservative on price but was constructed from inexpensive paper and lacked an attractive cover and durable binding. Despite the drawbacks I will likely read more of Dr. Laura; she's met ladies like me.

    Every New(and/or Returning)-To-The-Dating-Scene Lady Should Read It

    I purchased the book to send to my husband's 31-year old daughter, in an attempt to help her stop some "unhealthy" dating/life-altering habits that she seems to be repeating with men and consequently creating the same type of career/life issues for herself. I felt that I should read it first to make sure it was appropriate, and it has turned out to be quite "kick-you-in-the-behind" truthful. As a happily married senior lady from the '60s-Flower-Child era, I can personally atest to the truth about many of the situations that Dr. Laura covers in this book. They are the same today as they were in the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90, etc., (I was dating in each decade). The BEST thing (or worst, depending on your outlook) about this book is the fact that not much changes in the human search for "love". You can take advice from someone who just had an experience, as well as you can from your grandma. The only things that have seriously changed are the STD's and the social attitudes about some issues. I would recommend that you give this book to any female that is on a self-destructive relationship path if you want to be a good friend/relative.

    Definitely worth a look

    Laura Schlesinger, for all her flaws, is a perceptive woman and a refreshing contrarian. Before she veered to the religious right in 1994, she wrote this book which is quite good, and contrary to what many think, feminist. It's a good book to give to young women as it takes a ferocious stand on the value of independence, risk-taking, hard work, courage and self respect. Schlesinger is very hard on women who want to continue to see themselves as the victim in their life and relationships. Schlesinger's L.A. talk show in the early 90's was terrific and often controversial in refreshing ways-I wish she'd tone down the moralistic ranting and go back to providing the very perceptive and gutsy commentary she used to excel at. If you're looking for a self help book that will do more than tell you what you want to hear and repeat the same old cliches, I recommend this.

    If the shoe fits...

    In a word, appropriate. Her style, while not Shakespeare, is pointed and aggressive. Unfortunately, many women need this kind of advice (just look around you). Read it -- just to be sure...
