Editorial Reviews

With a candid, no nonsense conversation, Dr. Laura Schlessinger sets out to help men and women better understand the nature and needs of a man. Dr. Schlessinger looks at a variety of issues such as societal pressures, biological urges, and man’s hesitancy to engage his feelings. Using excerpts from her well-received radio program and frank letters from male listeners, Dr. Schlessinger has put together an important recording for those men looking to learn more about themselves and for women wanting help understanding why their partner does the things that he does. 10 Stupid Things Men Do to Mess Up Their Lives is a thought-provoking look at why men are the way they are.

Publisher's Summary

If they could understand the difference between being a male and being a man, stop measuring their masculinity with sex, marry for all the right reasons, and take pleasure in raising their children...

There's a reason why Dr. Laura Schlessinger has become a cultural icon - the truth in her message is undeniable. In this common-sense guide, Dr. Schlessinger, licensed marriage, family, and child counselor and best-selling author, uses examples from her radio show and strikingly honest letters from male listeners to teach men how to appreciate their nature and needs. She presents her insights with a level of sensitivity that will surprise some women and stun most men.

Fantastic!

I am sending a copy to my adult son. We have 2 boys (21/16) I have already told them that once they marry that while I hope our relationships stay close; their priority and 1st thought should always be of their wife and children. I also gave them the “ok” to keep me in check if ever I am riding the line of an overbearing mother. It is my worst nightmare to become a burden to our boys. They are not ours to “keep.”

Outside of that crucial point this book is full of good wisdom on what good men are made of. Good women crave these type of men that understand provision is not only monetary. Great book Dr. L!!

Loved it!

I love how I don't have to sort through any bullcrap. She gets right to the point and helpee me learn much about myself and what would truly lead to a fulfilling life. I never really learned how to be a man from my father, because he seems to be trapped in the pleasing game in between his kids, wife and mother. So I reasearched for myself. This book was a great asset to my knowledge and wisdom I now have. Hopefully, I can use it well. Thank for teaching me how to be a mwn Doctor Laura.
