52 Books - Week Four

The Proper Care & Feeding of Husbands
Dr. Laura

YES! I finally finished.  I'll admit that so far this has been the hardest book for me to finish.  Reading transcripts of Dr. Laura's call-in show made me angry. She came across as being quite judgmental and critical of the callers. Also, the book didn't seem to have a logical flow.  However, there is good information in the book.  I had to take the "don't throw the baby out with the bath water" attitude while reading.

An interesting note.  Having read Madame Bovary (1840's) just before this book, I disagree with Dr. Laura's argument that the lack of respect for husbands is the fault of the feminist movement.  There's nothing new under the sun.

I'm curious to know what it says. I'm sure I don't do a good job of it.

I hope to be finished reading it in a couple of days. I'll send it your way. :)
