Dr. Laura Schlessinger, a licensed marriage and family therapist, is one of the most popular talk-show hosts in radio history and the only woman to win the prestigious Marconi Award for syndicated radio. She is the author of twelve New York Times bestsellers, writes a daily blog, and is a regular Newsmax columnist. She is heard daily on Sirius/XM Channel 155 live, and her program is streamed and podcast on www.drlaura.com. Dr. Schlessinger has her own YouTube Channel (YouTube.com/drlaura). She is also the skipper and driver of a racing sailboat program that won the 2010 international race from Newport Beach to Cabo San Lucas. She and her husband live in Southern California.
While not a physician or psychologist, Dr. Laura, as she is popularly known, is a favorite self-help guru. Her first book, Ten Stupid Things Women Do To Mess Up Their Lives, was a best seller. Dr. Laura appears here as she appears on her popular radio show. She's tough, she's judgmental, and she's very right wing. Dr. Laura's premise is that character, courage, and conscience should be incorporated into our everyday living and decisions. With conversations from her radio show as the backdrop and biblical references throughout, she shows how this can be done. The problems are varied, and readers will surely find something they can relate to. Given the popularity of Dr. Laura's first book, this book will be in demand in most public libraries, especially in those markets where her radio show is aired. Larger libraries should consider multiple copies.‘Priscilla Davis Dann, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., South Euclid, Ohio
