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.

love listening to the author

Now I had a chance to read a few pages of the book in a library and decided to get it on audible. But I was worried that the person reading that would bore me. Yet it was the complete opposite! She has a voice, a way to present it that in the 1st 3 minutes she already has you. The way she talks really grabs your attention and inject the reasoning she's trying to have you see.
This was definitely something I needed to hear because I know I have a problem being clingy even when I'm not in relations with that person anymore. I have a hard time just letting go of a friendship always wanting to believe it can revive again. So even though this isn't as long as normal books her Bluntness definitely helps for you to see reason. besides listen into the examples of situations that you know we should not fall in. an even as a little girl I sow it as a embarrassment to see/hear women fall so low.

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

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.

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR AND THE BACK!

Very Offensive! U start out insulting the Very Women You seek to impower! Words like "STUPID" , and you quoting "SEXIST CUNT" is is inhumane, uncaring, and vulgar! then the good DOCTOR PRAISES HER Coworkers rude comment ABOUT THE WOMEN CALLING IN TO HER SELF- HELP RADIO SHOW! NOW I KNOW WHY I STOPPED WATCHING YOUR SHOW. PERHAPS, SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE, YOU HAVE BECOME BITTER TOWARD WOMEN AND YOU WOULD RATHER SCOLD THAN TEACH THEM? YOUR WORDS SERVE TO DISINFRANCHISE THEM DOCTOR! WITH AGE SHOULD COME WISDOM WOMAN. You had a good idea but your delivery was counterproductive .

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.
