The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands Dr. Laura Schlessinger read online review & book description:

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 incredible 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—with real-life examples and real-life solutions—how to wield that power to attain all the sexual pleasure, intimacy, love, joy, and peace you want in your life.

Dr. Laura's simple principles have changed the lives of millions. Now they can change yours.

  • “Finally, a woman says it”.

    Everywhere you look you see a woman who is either married or wants to be married, But what’s more obvious to me is how many of those women who want to get married never do their homework, but instead buy off and what (Hollywood, social media, best friends, sisters, and “especially what their mothers say when it comes to marriage”. You wouldn’t say, all my life I wanted to be a doctor when I grow up. When I became an adult I just walked into the first hospital I saw and said “I think this is the one”. Instead, you had to do your research you had to learn about what being a doctor is and do your research. The same goes for marriage so I think books like this are extremely helpful when vetting what marriage entails, v your preconceived impression of it from “dear old mommy”. Perhaps you might not like to hear what’s being said in this book but after reading a sample, so far the author is telling what I’ve personally experienced, and what I hear so many other men share about marriage, “the truth”. We do need to change how we are treating each other as husband and wife, if indeed you want a harmonious marriage. Change means shedding your knee jerk impulse to “have it your way or no ones happy”, and as men, to stop playing along with such bad behavior, even if the consequence means “no to sex”, her default to punishing you. Noah Calderon / author of The Marriage Riddle.

    By Seriously? Update please!!!
    This book really transformed the way I view relationships. While I’m not married yet, I am in a committed relationship with the man I want to spend my life with. Dr. Laura’s book made me realize how many backwards ideals I’ve had ingrained in me since childhood. I battled with the idea that putting my significant others feelings and needs before my own was submission. I battled with giving him the respect and admiration he deserves simply because I thought giving that to him would be considered docile, obedient behavior. When, in reality, it’s just being considerate, and giving this man who I adore, what he deserves. I battled with feeling like my feelings and desires were of paramount importance, while his were only of secondary importance. This book gave me a perspective I desperately needed in order to cultivate a relationship that can be healthy, loving, and full of mutual respect and admiration. Thank you to Dr. Laura for your no-nonsense, crack-the-whip approach! A must-read!
  • AMAZING!! Spread the word!

    I LOVE Dr. Laura's show and her advice. She provides, real, pragmatic and clear view on marriage and our (humans) make up is based on our primitive systems. If we women, simply embrace what's natural and show the type of respect we expect, to our husbands, we would be happier.
  • Marvelous!

    Never have I ever read a book that so well explains The behaviors of a man and what he thinks. Laura does an excellent job explaining to women what men feel is important and how they function. I have for years explained many of these feelings concepts to my wife who could not understand what I meant but after she read this book she now believes we are unchangeable in the way we are. And she truly loves me. I am a hard-working motivated loving husband with 10 children I would have no other partner than my wife and I would die for her thank you Laura.

    I couldn't have read this book at a better time in my life or in my marriage. She is honest and provides views from a different prospective (something that I needed). I have a lot of respect for Dr. Laura for telling women when they are wrong and not giving into them or feeding the fire like our girlfriends do. Thank you Dr. Laura for making me a better person and a better wife. I am moving on to "The Proper Car and Feeding of a Marriage" now. Dr. Laura is not a racist. How dare you say that about her?

    I highly recommend this book to all my friends - even the ones with "good" marriages, because it truly helps you understand where your husband is coming from. It gave me insight that helped me improve my relationship with my spouse. While I don't agree with everything she says, and at some points the book is a little redundant (anti-feminist rants! But she definitely has a point) she hits the nail on the head about so many things you can do to improve your marriage. Plus, it's a really fun easy read full of stories and letters from real couples. She teaches you that you can have a happy satisfying marriage - living happily ever after can be a reality if you put some work in to it. This book has the potential to save marriages if you have an open enough mind to accept the information in it. Be open and you will really get a lot out of it. .

    I have a few friends that really NEED to read this book.. Sadly they won't. This isn't a book about being a slave to your man (which is exactly what most of my friends -- who won't read it -- think. It's about being the woman in the relationship and letting your man be the man. It's about making YOUR situation better. I didn't need this book when I bought it, I wasn't even married.. I've read this about 10 times over the years and it's never been more important than it is now that I have a child. If my we aren't happy with each other, our daughter won't have a good life. I know (because of this book) that I control the mood, tone, and happiness of my house..
