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

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.

Perfect for jumping in

If you’ve ever felt held back, this book is full of truths that will help you move forward.

A great book for both men and women in understanding how and why we do the things we do to achieve what we believe to be satisfaction.

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.
