I have always enjoyed reading and re reading Dr. Lauras Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands....lots of practical applications and common sense. My marriage of now 50 years has been blessed because of her book. It is a part of my morning reading to prepare for a great day with my wonderful husband. I was interested to experience her The Ten Commandments book. It was typical Dr. Laura ... great practical advice and excellent examples. She explored and expanded each commandment. It was an awakening experience for me. I am determined to re read and underline this book. She shared much wisdom and again better ways to improve and view my life's purposes and my eternal origins and possibilities. love it!
Obviously from a Jewish perspective, but very inclusive of other faiths. Gives a very good application of God's Law to people's everyday issues of life! A good read. Keeps you interestef, though a little long. Not as good as her other books.

This book not only explains the history and theology of each of the Commandments, but also describes their influence on law, morality, and society today, and provides helpfully detailed examples that really get you thinking in broader terms about a great many things.
For example, it's one thing to understand that murder--the taking of an innocent life--is wrong. It's also not too hard to understand that lying about someone is wrong. But to make the leap that lying about someone (perhaps because you covet something they have and are envious!), leading to that person's inability to get a job and support their family, is essentially symbolic murder. Dr. Laura challenges her readers to really extrapolate the meanings behind God's laws, and I personally feel a greater respect for my fellow man having read this book. It's heavily highlighted and my family has spoken about it at length!
In this book, Dr. Laura Schlessinger challenges the reader to update his/her thinking to include the most basic of rules: The Ten Commandments. She doesn't mince words and puts forth a challenge to the weak among us (that's all of us, in some way) to live UP to the Ten Commandments, not DOWN to today's moral vacuum. Dr. Laura may not be the best writer around but the message is crystal-clear: Clean Up Your Act, Take Responsibiltiy, And Stop Acting Like A Spoiled Brat. More, she makes the reader examine one's lifestyle, clearly uncomfortable for many. I found the book deliciously challenging and spot on in today's Conservative atmosphere.
