Publisher's Summary

If you're unhappy and your life is a mess, you've got no one to blame but yourself - and you can do something about it! Dr. Laura, the incredibly popular and controversial therapist who hosts L.A.'s top-rated midday radio talk show, gives her no-holds-barred take on stupid things women do and how they can change. She uses real-world examples from her show and private practice to drive home the message that once you muster the courage to take responsibility for your problems and to take risks, the possibilities for personal growth and joy are limitless. If you're ready to handle the challenge, you can learn how to lose that jerk of a lover, parent the babies you've made, and follow your dream instead of some dreamboat. Get ready to jump-start your journey into self-worth.

Awakening

Some of the reviews on this book mentioned that Dr. Laura is a hating on women and belittling them. On the contrary, I took it as a pep talk! Women don't always want to hear the truth about their feelings because it hurts too much so they push them aside. However, if you honestly listen to this book with an open mind instead of being defensive, you will find the power it holds to helping women change their thought process towards relationships.

it was straightforward and accurate

women need to stop playing the victim and stepping up for themselves they need to discover who they are before they act on what they want

Very good information for ALL women

I wanted to get this for my teen daughter who has friends marrying for all the dumb reasons mentioned in this book. I found good information for MYSELF. This is a must read for all women.

Refreshing

The things that we women NEED to hear but don't always WANT to hear. Schlessinger provides tough love and cuts straight to the point.

Tremendously refreshing.

Too bad it's abridged.

Would you try another book from Laura Schlessinger and/or Laura Schlessinger?

Yes, however, it's abridged so it served as a teaser that encouraged me to pick up the book and read it. An unabridged version isn't currently available as an audio.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

She bullet pointed her lessons and found extremely appropriate stories to illustrate them.

Have you listened to any of Laura Schlessinger’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is alot like her radio show but its' more like a greatest hits. It's better than her radio show at points because she doesn't have to tease out the questions and there's no rambling from the callers.

Was Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives worth the listening time?

It was an excellent use of my time.

Any additional comments?

The recording was only an hour and a half. That's shorter than her radio show, that's ridiculous.

First 30 minutes

Not what I expected.
I thought it would be full of advice and tips on how to improve self-awareness. So far it's just a woman critizing and belittling other women.

Patronising tone not for everyone

Some good thoughts but not sure most people would feel included. For the women stuck in their relationship, not sure what to do.
