Overview

Dr. Laura Schlessinger is the incredibly popular and controversial psychotherapist who hosts a nationally syndicated, top-rated midday radio talk show and is the author of the bestselling How Could You Do That?! She has strong convictions and doesn't hesitate to voice them to callers. She urges women emphatically to lose a domineering jerk of a lover and pick one of the "good guys," to stay home and parent the babies they've made, and to follow the dream rather than some dreamboat. Above all, she exhorts women not to blame anybody or anything but themselves if they're unhappy and their lives seem a mess.

Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives uses real-world examples from Schlessinger's radio show and private practice to drive the message home. And the message is that our reticience to be bold and brave often makes us act like stupid, submissive victims. Once we muster the courage to take repsonibility for our own problems and to tolerate the discomforts of risk, the possibilities for personal growth and joy are limitless.

If you're looking for an all-approving hand to hold, you won't find it here. If you're prepared to take a clear-eyed look at your self-diminishing behavior and to make the move to a quality existence, there's no one better than Schlessinger to keep you honest and to cheer you on. One thing's for sure: you'll never look at your relationships, behaviors, and decisions the same way after you've finished listening to this audio.

    Dont read, unless you are prepared to have your life changed forever

    In this book, the sadness that is a womans outlook in her life's role to have a self esteem based on the happiness of the man in her life, is revieled to the point of absolute recognition. You can not walk away from this book with unchanged respect for yourself as a person who deserves to be in a good healthy relationship.

    more from this reviewer

    Great Book! Let's hope you're not too late to read it.

    Decisions, decisions... Life is about making decisions, some to celebrate later and some to regret. The writer goes direct to the point and sounds like a true friend who tells you something you do not want to hear but you need to. Thank you Dr. Laura, I needed a good and stern advise on making the right choices in life. I have been making lousy, sorry decisions. Thank you again. I recomend it to hard headed people that won't listen to anybody that know exactly what they're doing... yes messing up their lives.

    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.

    Fast reading but not Inspiring

    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.

    How Women Sabotage Their Own Lives & Society as a Whole

    This is an excellent look at how they do just this through behaviors like totally depending on men without developing any interests or talents of their own hanging on to inappropriate partners cohabitation having children for selfish reasons outside of loving, stable marriages with willing to parent partners and letting men hurt their children. I personally know many women who are begging their husbands for children, yet instead need copies of this book. Dr. Laura encourages women to take responsibility for their actions and choices to pursue their dreams that don't necessarily have to involve the men in their lives and, in doing so, to improve the quality of their lives.

    Female must read

    While in your 20's most women do not make the best relationship decisions, Some women never figure it out, this book was the light bulb that I needed in a bad time. This book was a life line during a bad relationship..a TOO LONG bad relationship. Sincerely, I would like to thank Dr. Laura for helping so many women w/ this book.

    This is a VERY good book!!

    This is a good book for women who find themselves in bad situations involving men. I may not be one of those women, but this book has made me aware of what to look out for and avoid. So, women out there who are in abusive situations or just keep getting the wrong type of guy and want to get out of it, this is the book for you!

    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.

    A Women's Must Read

    This book is a must read for all women. I found myself saying numerous times, 'Oh my that's me!' I related to so many of those women in Dr. Laura's book. Hopefully we will all learn by these stories that these women shared.

    Great advice for Women!

    Again, in this book Dr. Laura doesn't talk around the issues; she's right to the point. Some advice may sound a little tought, and perhaps it is, but it's helpful advice based on keen insight. This is a great book for us ladies and I think it will help especially all married women. Another book that I highly recommend as it is so very helpful, and which has been written by the man who is frequently referred to as Dr. Laura's twin brother, is Dietmar Scherf's 'Depression: Avoiding & Overcoming: I Love Me.'

    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...

    This book has bitter critics

    I am wondering if this books critics have anything better to do than criticize this. Dr Laura is making an effort and all some people can do is blame her! If you followed her advice wrong, it's not her fault, it's yours! To top that all off, how many of you never take responsibilty for the things that are outside of your paradigm? How many people out there really have the utter courage to admit that they are wrong for criticizing Dr Laura like she is Hitler? I know someone who feels the same about Noam Chomsky, and issues like these are getting really old! If you don't like it, accept that it is never going to go away, and I might as well take my own advice, because it is you dogmatic critics that are making me go crazy! If you are so smart, why don't you write a book? PS who are better? the Democrats or the Republicans? Answer: Neither. all of this stuff is in the eye of the beholder! It's a shame that too many people miss that, especially about something such as Dr Laura's book. I like it... am I a nasty typical man? you have never met me, so you have no right to judge me yet!

    Choppy Writing, Thinking

    I did not enjoy being spoken down to for the endless length of this book. It was poorly written, and seems to be designed for the lowest common denominator. I have very little respect for the author after reading this -- she gives no credit to any woman, it seems.
