If you are:

* capable of more than you are accomplishing

* frustrated that you are not making more money

* stuck in a rut and not getting what you want

* bored with yourself

* silently enduring an emotionally barren life or marriage

* trudging, zombie-like, through an unchallenging career

* just "going through the motions" of your life

* living in a comfort zone that yields too little challenge

* living a lonely existence with little hope for change

then hold on as Dr. Phillip McGraw takes you on a guided tour of your life to honestly label the problems and causes that control your destiny.

Life Strategies will give you the most honest explanation of your life and how you got where you are that has ever been published. Dr. McGraw is results-based and measures success in terms of changed lives, not rhetoric. This audiobook is a plain-talk, entertaining way to learn to take control of your life, right now. In this audiobook, the author describes the ten Laws of Life that every person needs to know. Learn them, use them, and improve virtually every aspect of your life, from work to home to spiritual to physical. Ignore them and you'll continue to pay the price.

With Life Strategies, Dr. McGraw tells you how to strategically control your life, rather than continue as a frustrated passenger. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " A lot of people hate the guy, I think he's a little over the top on his show, but this book has helped me in the past when I need to get out of my head. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yasser Hassan | 2/14/2014

    " A review of the audio book edition: A good book that lets you think results/actions instead of actions/results by putting the outcome in mind first before embarking on a course of actions and hence how to lead your life instead of letting life lead you. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brett | 2/13/2014

    " I feel very sorry for people that buy books like this and read this one for my mom who sent it to me. Having a guy describe common sense to you as a life lesson like not talking back to cops, understanding that life is not fair, and that things will change in an instant is no surprise to me. Nor should it be to anyone that does not live a sheltered life where they have people do stuff for them. Phil talks on others stories from afar that he is close to as if examining people's ability to merely not have common sense or have it is an extremely deep and insightful skill. Most of what he talked about in this book I knew about when I was 14 and I read this when I was 22. I felt like I wasted my time after reading this book. Phil the more I hear him talk strikes me of someone of average IQ posing as a genius that no one has bothered to tell him he is not really that bright on his grand epiphanies on human motivation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry | 2/6/2014

    " A good book if you've sort of lost your way and looking for the right path. Self-testing and writing to help you make decisions are where you want to go and should be. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharyar Khan | 2/4/2014

    " A good book that tells you how to live life in a positive manner "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stuart Rice | 1/26/2014

    " So far, the life strategies are sound and Dr. Phil's voice is both endearing, comforting and challenging. Phil McGraw reminds me of your uncle encouraging you to do better by making you smile and feel better about yourself. I wish I had an uncle like that. :-) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris Bray | 1/23/2014

    " I'm usually not a big self-help book reader, but I really enjoyed this book. I think it is a must read for everyone who seems to be "stuck" in some aspect of their lives. It does make you evaluate your life and how you react and interact with others. "

    " Bought this book in June 2006 when I needed the information that was contained therein. It's about the 10 Laws of Life... including...Life Law #1: You either get it or you don't and Life Law #8: We teach people how to treat us. Good information...and I still refer back to it when I need a refresher! "
