Publisher's Summary

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 army. 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 87, 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 listeners 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 their limitless possibilities.

    "Dr. Ruth is amazing!"

    I enjoyed the narrator's voice. I enjoyed the wise advice from Dr. Ruth. This book has minimal sex talk and it's more on living life and taking all the chances that come along.

    "What a nice trip she takes you on..."

    Enjoyed hearing about the parts of her life that was either unknown or not so famous. Dr Ruth is a institution. A natural story teller. Would have enjoyed it more had she read the book but @ 86, why not have someone read it for you.
