In a breezy audio collection, the inimitable Dr. Laura reads three of her popular books about the stupid things women, men, and couples do to mess up their lives. She's a brilliant writer on human frailty, and she's especially sharp about the craziness that invades us when we fall in love. Though her glib smugness (something most radio personalities acquire with age) is distracting at times, this excellent compilation still proves that Dr. Laura is one of our most astute mental health teachers. Her brand of freewheeling confidence is a welcome change from the compensatory puffiness heard in many author-narrated mental health audios. An entertaining and immensely engaging lesson.
In Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives, Dr. Laura uses real-world examples to take a clear-eyed look at ten major self-damaging behaviors women exhibit and gives advice on how to move on to a quality existence.
In Ten Stupid Things Men Do to Mess Up Their Lives, Dr. Laura speaks her mind on Stupid Chivalry, Stupid Ambition, Stupid Strength, Stupid Sex, Stupid Husbanding, Stupid Parenting, Stupid Boyishness, and Stupid Machismo.
In Ten Stupid Things Couples Do to Mess Up Their Relationships, Dr. Laura addresses the problems men and women face in finding peace, joy, and self-fulfillment in relationships and the ten most common mistakes people make to mess up their relationships.

Her attitude sucks, she loves to call people stupid... she is not compassionate at all towards people that have made mistakes in life and need some direction and advice, she is too full of herself... In fact, she spends more time calling people stupid than she is finding solutions... She makes SOME good points, but her bad way of delivering her ideas just killed it for me.. I had to stop listening... If you want to listen to someone really nice and intelligent, listen to Louise Hay. She GIVES solutions and doesn't make you feel incompetent... Don't waste your time.. I was nice giving her 2 stars..
The Power of Love is very chatty and relatively easy to listen to; however, the book simply has no substance. The advice is ad hoc at best, but I really don't think the author knows more about relationships than a good bartender. In fact, her assertions are completely unsupported. More like a long litany of anecdotes than a systematic examination of the Power of Love.
The women has no clue what she's talking about, and she's neither a medical doctor or has doctorate in psychology - she has a PhD in physiology which is the study of human body - kind of like human specific biology - she might know her stuff about amino acids, hormones, and enzymes, but she is toally out of her league here.
Complete waste of time and money!
