Publisher's Summary

Following the tremendous success of her New York Times best sellers, Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives and How Could You Do That?!, Dr. Laura Schlessinger, the conscience of talk radio, now addresses the stupid things men do that diminish their lives and happiness.

With real-world examples from her radio show and strikingly honest letters from her male listeners, her book reveals that many men demonstrate a level of sensitivity and insight that will surprise most women. Dr. Laura provides commonsense guidelines to show men how to appreciate their own nature and needs. 

Humorous and wise, she urges men to:

  • Stop trying to save or transform needy women
  • Recognize and enjoy the need for intimacy
  • Avoid blind ambition, which focuses on externals
  • Realize their need for control
  • Stop measuring their masculinity with sex
  • Marry for all the right reasons
  • Resolve emotional issues with their mothers
  • Take pleasure in raising their children
  • Understand the difference between being male and a man
  • Be a loving mate

Men and the women who love them will be enriched by the compassion and wisdom of Dr. Laura's spirited perspective. Her growing audience will never look at their relationships, behaviors, and decisions the same way after listening to Ten Stupid Things Men Do to Mess Up Their Lives. There is a reason Dr. Laura has become a cultural icon - her message is challenging, it's truth undeniable.

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.

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!!
