Woman Power
By Dr. Laura Schlessinger

     Wives, are you in a lackluster marriage? Have you and your husband lost the romance and affection you once had for each other? If so, Woman Power, the companion to The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands has some ideas for you. This book is written as a workbook for wives (and their husbands) to help change attitudes and behaviors that lead to unhappy marriages or even divorce. Dr. Schlessinger provides an easy to read format and her trademark no-nonsense approach to help wives empower themselves to make positive changes in their marriage. Each section provides quotes from readers of The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. Dr. Laura also poses some questions to wives to aid in self-assessment. There is space to write in answers as well.

     Even if you haven't read The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands, it doesn't take long to figure out what kinds of information are in it. The chapters in this book generally begin with questions and comments from readers of the first book and then reiterate the information in light of reader testimonies.

     At times, this book can come across as being an infomercial for The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. However, if you have read the first book, or even if you haven't and you want to utilize the workbook format, this is a thought provoking read. This would make an excellent book for a spirited book club discussion as well as being an interesting self help book.
