The long-awaited follow-up to her groundbreaking best seller, 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 best seller 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 take some of her advice and throw some out the window. I would be (and have been in the past) more open to her if she wasn't such a masculinist (as I call it). I could not finish this book. She had a great point when she referred to women's weaknesses as our strengths gone too far. But when the men showed their weaknesses the same way (as strenths gone too far), she continued to blame the women and let the men get away with everything under the sun. I'm not saying her advice is useless, but for crying out loud, give women some credit! Personally, I think relationships improve when BOTH people are committed and willing to recognize weakness, not put it all on the woman (as if we didn't have enough on our plates). "

    " Oh Dr. Laura. I do like how she says things. There were many stories in this book that made me feel like a good wife. Some people are nuts. But kudos to those of you in a poor marriage and stick it out. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie | 2/16/2014

    " More of the same. I was hoping to have a more balanced approach to the Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands but it was just a rehash. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janell | 2/8/2014

    " To sum it up, Dr. Laura basically teaches her readers how to "love thy neighbor (spouse) as thyself," and how to own up to and take responsibility for your behavior. I think this book could help bad marriages become good ones, and good marriages become great ones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonellebeth | 2/1/2014

    " Sometimes her books make me mad. I feel like she always thinks it's the women's fault. Nonetheless, she does offer alot of good advice on how to improve your marriage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cassandra | 1/27/2014

    " I appreciated the overall message of the book, namely to respect and be loving of your spouse. That being said, I understand that not everyone who reads this book will be pleased. Dr. Laura is nothing if not blunt! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie Packer | 1/25/2014

    " Every married person or every person thinking of getting married should read this. I saw myself in her examples a lot, unfortunately, and it made me do a double take. Read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheralie | 1/25/2014

    " Perhaps Dr. Laura's best, this book focuses on both husband and wife and what marriage is all about. If you are in need of an attitude adjustment, look no further. Great stories and overall ideas on improving ourselves and doing our part. PG-13 for language. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 M | 1/12/2014

    " I do prefer "KISS--Keep It Simple, Sweetie," but other than that, THANK YOU! Thanks for giving me permission to be a woman! It was especially nice to hear "love thy neighbor" outside of church, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 PhilorChelsy | 1/7/2014

    " Guys, we like what she says! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 11/16/2013

    " A lot of similar info. as the Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. Good reminders and a different perspective at how to look at things. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Diana | 9/9/2013

    " I thought her other book, proper care and feeding of husbands, was better. Still had lots of good information, but I felt like this book was a reprint of the first, but retitled so more women would be willing to read it. Ladies, just go read the other book if you want to improve your marriage. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridget | 8/13/2013

    " Mostly a regurgitation of her previous book, The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, which in my opinion was better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle Kirk | 4/4/2013

    " Fast read. I highly recommend this book to anyone who's married or thinking about getting married. It's great! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jody | 3/16/2013

    " she always seems biased to me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Travis | 7/13/2012

    " I read this book when my wife and I were in a low point in our marriage, and I was so touched by Dr. Laura's sincere empathy. I found her counsel moving and helpful. I cried at several parts, aching to do better and be a better husband to my wife. I'll be re-reading this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vanessa | 7/10/2012

    " Dr. Laura made some excellent points, but the book was a little long-winded. I think she could have cut the size in half and maintained all of the pertinent points. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenna | 7/4/2012

    " Great book. It's good to know I'm not the only selfish wife out there, it's a whole book about selfish wives!!! :) I liked this book even though it got a little repetitive. It did help me understand men a little better which I needed! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kammy | 5/7/2012

    " I enjoyed this book, although it was very similar to "The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" which I read a couple years ago. You could probably get away with reading just one of these two books and still get the basic ideas that she is trying to put across. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monique | 2/7/2012

    " This book I found rather enlightening and helpful unlike her other book I read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 1/17/2012

    " We have recommended this book to many couples. Especially great for non-Christian couples. But I must say, "Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands" is my favorite of the two. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mandy | 6/30/2011

    " you can learn a lot in this book about men, but it's a bit negative for me. Still, the tips and positive suggestions in it are helpful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 5/14/2011

    " I didn't want to like it, but I thought it had some good points. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 5/12/2011

    " Just what you'd expect from Schlessinger. Some good points and suggestions. Some parts made me want to punch her. Not a good read if you're a feminist! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jodie | 5/5/2011

    " There was some good information here, but mostly I was bored. I felt she tried to make it more exciting with intense examples from her radio show. Some good info, but not the best read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 5/4/2011

    " This is like rewinding 50 years of progress. Dr. Laura is a moron. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 5/4/2011

    " I highly recommend for all married ladies!! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristen | 4/14/2011

    " If this book is about what wives SHOULD be like then I NEVER want to get married - it sounds AWFUL!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda | 4/13/2011

    " This book is awesome! Dr. Laura totally tells you how it is and how to make marriage amazing! If you are happily married, unhappily married, soon to be married, or even thinking about marriage, READ THIS BOOK! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tatrd | 4/12/2011

    " Give him "guy time", let him act like a man, don't whine to him, use sex for yourself too. He has feelings and emotions. Tell him you're proud of him and how hard working he is and he'll slay dragons for you. "
