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.

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!

My Husband's Happier...So am I
After 20 years, I thought my marriage was pretty good...for a 20-year marriage. This book gave me eyes to see what was right in front of me. I've been looking at my husband and seeing his actions and behaviors as if he was a woman, like me. He's not. He's a man, and a great one at that. I have new eyes to see him the way he is, and a much better attitude toward him. Actually, I feel giddy again, like a newlywed...or even like I did when I was dating him. This is the first (non-religious) book I have ever read that actually made a difference in my life. I recommend it to ANYONE who is interested in improving their marriage, or even their day-to-day relationships in general.

Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands
Dr. Laura has helped so many readers and listeners with this book. She has saved marriges and relationships from horrible endings. I would recommend this to any couple who wants to have a better, more loving relationship with their partner. The key is to be nicer and to be caring for men's needs. Stop being selfish and self centered. Men have feelings too! Great Book!!!
