I think the messages in the book are good, but I don't really like her style of writing. It's mostly stream of thought without a lot of organization. Also, if you've listened to her show you've heard most of it, in fact almost all of the book is her quoting callers from her show. I think it would be a good book for a young women finding herself in bad relationships, but if you are basically balanced you don't get much out of it.
Dr. Laurie covers those ugly little subjects that tell why we are so down on oursleves, and she explains how to recover from low self-esteem. I likew the book.
This book has excellent common sense advice. The advice can be applied to most anything in life not just about men. I got this for my 27 yr old daughter, but I wanted to read it before sending it on. I had never read one of Dr. Laura'a books before. I highly recommend it. What she has to say is so true. We women know what she says is true. But, most women in a particular situation don't want to accept the same advice they would give their best friend. Bottom line what is best for your life. You can only change yourself no one else. Get your own life together and find fulfillment.
Wonderful - practical - should be required reading for all women of all ages!
Good advice for women who are walked on!
