In her most provocative book yet, Dr. Laura urgently reminds women that to take proper care of their husbands is to ensure themselves the happiness and satisfaction they yearn for in marriage.

Women want to be in love, get married, and live happily ever after. Yet disrespect for men and disregard for the value, feelings, and needs of husbands has fast become the standard for male-female relations in America. Those two attitudes clash in unfortunate ways to create struggle and strife in what could be a beautiful relationship.

Countless women call Dr. Laura, unhappy in their marriages and seemingly unable to understand the power they have over their men in creating the kind of home life they yearn for. Now, in The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, Dr. Laura shows you how to wield that power to attain all the sexual pleasure, intimacy, love, joy, and peace you want in your life. With real-life examples—and real-life solutions—Dr. Laura’s simple principles have changed the lives of millions. Now they can change yours.

    " I often felt like she was yelling at me. "

    " Not totally sure what to rate this book. I DID enjoy it, and thought she made a lot of really awesome points. In particular, I thought that she hit the nail on the head when she talked about trying to put your husband first, put yourself in his shoes, not complain about how hard your day is the second he walks through the door, etc. On the other hand, I felt she maybe took it a little too far. There are TWO people in a marriage, and I think it's up to both of them to contribute to the well-being of the marriage, not solely the wife. Also, by the end, I felt like she was SO redundant. So, overall, some good points, but it was sort of a drag to finish it all. "

    " I am three quarters of the way through this book and I love it. I think this is a wonderful book that has inspired me to be a better wife and a better person. "

    " I liked this book because I can appreciate when someone tells it like it is. I agree with a good 95% of what the author said in the book, especially about what the feminist movement has done to women in actuality. The movement was supposed to give us numerous options in life, but now the pendulum has swung so far the other way that we are basically expected to be men...ha, and men to be women, go figure. The good thing about this book is its ability to make you puff up and have some pride in your gender for all its unique-ness, not its unisexness. I like that she calls women out about their be- Yes, we have be...its not just men. We have a tendency to want to blame EVERYBODY else for our misery, this book will make you want to change your thoughts and ways...before those ways head you into divorce. If you read this book with an open mind and heart, you will get what the author is trying to do for you, and you will benefit. Please give it a try. "
