Publisher's Summary

This has become a society of complainers, as people spend far too much time griping about problems and not enough time actually tackling them. Now Dr. Laura Schlessinger steps in to help folks conquer this widespread, "poor me" mindset and take action to do and be their best in Stop Whining, Start Living, her most personal book to date.

Building on the principles developed during her long career as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Dr. Laura issues an important message: if you don't like your life, quit talking about your unhappiness and try to fix it, no matter how difficult or impossible your situation seems.

Although it's healthy to vent occasionally, endless grumbling only keeps you paralyzed in misery, reinforces hopelessness and demoralizes those around you. In Stop Whining, Start Living, Dr. Laura's powerful lessons include:

  • Why giving, giving, and giving some more to others is a gift to yourself too
  • Why over-talking about your troubles is a big don't and when to just shut up!
  • How to reshape your self-image and reboot your relationships to get the life you want

    Everyone can use a kick in the pants sometimes, and Dr. Laura is here to deliver it!

    Dr. Laura always helps me change my attitude.

    Dr. Laura always reminds me to be a better me. She helps me get back on track to becoming the woman I want to be. Definitely worth the listen.

    Outstanding Read! Changing My Life

    I liked how Dr. Laura simplifies important truths and shows how to stop whining. Excellent in application and so timely in my life. Interestingly enough, I already began to change my life months ago with these very concepts burned in my mind. I decided to shut the whole franchise down on self pity and to simply grow up. I am so overjoyed to report how different I am today and the changes my friends and family see in me too. Following through on these changes are so worth it. The rewards infinite and surprising. I highly recommend this book to anyone going through very hard things as I am now. Dealing with chronic pain, grief and loss, and other issues self-pity is never far away. However, realizing this is an uninvited guest in my home, and I do not have to give it a room. Now I say simply, Sorry! We're booked up here!

    Excellent wisdom for today

    Practical commonsense approach to relationships, even difficult situations. Wisdom for a world more prone to pop a pill than work through life's challenges.
