Library Journal

New York Times best-selling author Schlessinger-"Dr. Laura," as she's known on her radio show-is back with a follow-up to her The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. Based largely on stories and surveys completed by listeners of past radio broadcasts, her latest book explores her ideas regarding what makes a healthy marriage. Schlessinger begins by explaining what masculinity and femininity are all about and assuring readers that "marriage is the best state for men and women." Using an easy-to-read, conversational format, she explores the expectations that women and men both bring to a marriage, as well as the benefits both sides experience, and she discusses key dos and don'ts for a healthy marriage. Above all, she asserts, successful marriages entail sacrifice and require both participants to put the needs of the other individual first in their lives. This title will no doubt be popular with followers of Schlessinger's broadcasts and is thus selectively recommended for public libraries.-Crystal Renfro, Georgia Inst. of Technology Lib. & Information Ctr., Atlanta Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Publisher's Weekly

The bestselling author (The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands), columnist and talk show host does not deviate from her strong belief that women are largely responsible for happy marital unions, which should be their first priority. For Schlessinger, "feminism robbed women of their essence and their ability to find pure joy and happiness," but the fair sex can regain that by promoting a traditional relationship with their husbands. Many of Schlessinger's golden rules recall suggestions from previous books: avoid interfaith marriage, stay together for the sake of the children and never say no to a husband who wants sex. Never insist that a man wash his own dishes, either; both women and men should respect the division of labor and a woman's status as homemaker. Although Schlessinger acknowledges that men have a responsibility to communicate and recommends that they express gratitude to their wives for domestic attentions, she clearly delineates a successful marriage as one between a male financial provider and a female emotional caregiver. She includes a digression on the differences between the sexes and the masculine/feminine polarity. Though this latest guide will confirm Dr. Laura's retrograde views for many, devotees will continue to look to her for answers. (Jan.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
