  • I have never heard of it before but by the title of it, it sounds kind of sexist. Is it?

  • I have read it and somethings I do agree with, but Dr. Laura can be very one-sided, and I did take some good things away from it, I don't live by it 100%

  • I was sooooo against that book, until my marriage was on the rocks and i figured what the hell ill try it. Ladies, my husband went from a cold hearted sexist pig who treated me like a servant to a man who now treats me like a queen. He gets up and will straighten up the house and cook me breakfast, instead of sleeping in and bitching about everything. Im so impressed. Im really glad I tried it. My number 1 tip though- the secret to a having a husband who is willing to do anything just to please you, is to make sure you please him WELL and OFTEN if you get what I mean.
