Publisher's Summary

In her most provocative book yet, Dr. Laura urgently reminds women that to take proper care of their husbands is to ensure themselves the happiness and satisfaction they yearn for in marriage. Women want to be in love, get married, and live happily ever after. Yet disrespect for men and disregard for the value, feelings, and needs of husbands has fast become the standard for male-female relations in America. Those two attitudes clash in unfortunate ways to create struggle and strife in what could be a beautiful relationship.
Countless women call Dr. Laura, unhappy in their marriages and seemingly at a loss to understand the power they have over their men to create the kind of home life they yearn for. Now, in The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, Dr. Laura shows you how to wield that power to attain all the sexual pleasure, intimacy, love, joy, and peace you want in your life. With real-life examples, and real-life solutions, Dr. Laura's simple principles have changed the lives of millions. Now they can change yours.


What the Critics Say

"Like many of the author's best-selling books and audios, this is a groundbreaking and refreshing lesson. Schlessinger's own friendly and youthful narration makes the presentation a joy to hear in spite of the jarring nature of her message." ( AudioFile)"While many of [Dr. Laura's] listeners and readers claim her unequivocal advice has salvaged teetering marriages and improved marital harmony, others perceive Schlessinger as a throwback to what many see as years of female oppression in the home." ( Publishers Weekly)

I loved the book

I didn't like the audio book. Laura speaks incredibly fast, with a tone of voice that makes it hard for me to listen to and completely follow what she says. Instead of relaxed and at peace, I find myself stressed and tense, from what she says and how she says it. I've enjoyed the book on Kindle before, but listening to it hasn't at all given me the same joy.

She shares invaluable information, has plenty of good points and while I disagree with her about a lot of things (Christianity, the need for marriage, staying together for the good of the children, and a few other things), this is a good book.

It's just not a good audio book.

Great advice

Not a long listen, but packed with advice and guidance. Would rather have something shorted and if quality than hours longer and just waffling on. Absolutely love her way of being Frank with the listener. Highly recommend. Read/listen to her wives!
