The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands
By Laura Schlessinger

     Each year millions of marriages end in divorce. Finding that special someone to spend the rest of your life with is a rarity in this day and time. How can a marriage survive with so much that can go wrong? Dr. Laura Schlessinger has attempted to provide the answer in The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. Through real life conversations from her radio talk show she has managed to gain the opinion of both sexes. Her advice is catered to women and how they are to do whatever is possible to stand by their men.

     While reading this book I was bothered that the author hinted that family problems were the result of the woman. I found this to be a very untrue statement, and I was surprised that she indicated it through her examples. This book would have been more effective if the author had researched her topic instead of leaving it on the opinion of a few people. I would encourage anyone who picks up this book to read it with an open mind. You might find that it is just what you have been searching for to help you in your current situation.
