Book Review – Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands – Rating: 5 out of 5

The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, by Dr. Laura Schlessinger

My Dad gave my sister and me each a copy of this book a couple of years ago and said that the only thing he wanted for his birthday that year was for us to read it and take it to heart. So I did.

I just finished re-reading it.

Content. I’m not a fan of Dr. Laura. Can’t really stand to listen to her. She’s too much of a know-it-all but that’s what she’s paid for. This book is actually a compilation of contributions from her male listeners.

Writing Style. This book is a great bathroom book. And by that, I mean you can pick it up and read for shorter periods of time. Definitely good for new moms too, as we don’t have hours on end to read and focus.

Re-readability. Awesome. I plan to re-read this book every couple of years. I think my hubby and I have a really good relationship, but I realized after reading this book again that it’s easy to fall back into a selfish mode and expect him to be one of my girlfriends. He’s not. He never will be. And to be honest, I never want him to be!!

I recommend this book to any woman who is (or ever plans to be) in a relationship with a man.
