The doctor is in! America’s best-loved therapist, Dr. Ruth, is known for her wise counsel on all matters of the heart. Here she shares private stories from her past and her present and her insights into living life to the fullest at any age.

Everyone knows Dr. Ruth as America’s most famous and trusted sex therapist, but few people know she was raised in an orphanage in Switzerland, narrowly escaping death during the Holocaust—or that she was an ace sniper in the Israeli amy. After years spent as a professor in Paris, Dr. Ruth came to America with big dreams and even bigger chutzpah. And, at the age of eighty-seven, she is as feisty as ever.

Through intimate and funny stories, Dr. Ruth sheds light on how she’s learned to live a life filled with joie de vivre. And she shows listners how they too can learn to deal with tragedy and loss, challenges and successes, all while nourishing an intellectual and emotional spark and, above all, having fun! Hilarious, inspiring, and profound, The Doctor Is In will change the way you think about life and love, in all its limitless possibilities.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Articulately written and precisely voiced by Laural Merlington, this is a delight and a wonderful treat for the ears…Although the introduction is voiced by Westheimer herself, the rest of the audiobook is narrated by Merlington. Her mature, appropriately paced narration provides context by nature of its sensitivity…Thankfully, Merlington doesn’t attempt to imitate the inimitable Westheimer—yet she quite skillfully weaves the words into rhythms that are unmistakably Westheimer. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.”
