The long-awaited follow-up to her groundbreaking bestseller, now Dr. Laura focuses on how men and women need to understand and appreciate the uniqueness of masculinity and femininity; what the best ways to relate, caretake, and nurture each other are; and how to bring a marriage back from the brink of disaster.

Jumping off her million-copy bestseller The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, Dr. Laura asserts that in order to produce and sustain a wonderfully satisfying marriage, spouses must recognize and appreciate the polarity between masculine and feminine. Both husband and wife have power in the relationship, and each needs to realize this in order to ensure personal satisfaction. Using real-life examples from her call-in radio show, and giving real-life solutions, Dr. Laura focuses on the typical mistakes made by men and women in their relationships and shows how marriages can come back from the brink of disaster and divorce.

    " I only listened to part of this book on cd. I did enjoy it and I think she gave really great tips. I really liked her other book "The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands" better. But I thought this was interesting as well. Great for those looking for marriage helps. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Alison Bowers | 1/26/2014

    " I'm almost done with this book and actually quite enjoying it. Dr. Laura definitely has strong opinions about men and women roles but I don't think she's too far off. A lot of the book includes samples of phone calls she's recieved but if you allow yourself to resonate with them it can be quite good and help keep you focused on the thing that matters most in life - family.
