    Book summary:

    The Ten Commandments are the first direct communication between a people and God. Designed to elevate our lives above mere frantic, animal existence to the sublime levels humanity is capable or experiencing, they are the blueprint of God's expectations of us and His plan for a meaningful, just, loving, and holy life. Each commandment asserts a principle, and each principle is a moral focal point for real-life issues relating to God, family, sex, work, charity, property, speech, and thought. Written in collaboration with Rabbi Stewart Vogel, The Ten Commandments incorporates lively discussion of the Bible and the Judeo-Christian values derived from it. Filled with passion, emotion, and profound insights, it will move, enlighten, inspire, entertain, and educate you on the meaning each commandment has in our daily lives today:

  • I am the Lord, your God, Who has taken you out of the land of Egypt, from the house of slavery.

  • You shall not recognize the gods of others in My presence.

  • You shall not take the Name of the Lord., your God, in vain.

  • Remember the Sabbath day and sanctify it.

  • Honor your Father and your Mother.

  • You shall not murder.

  • You shall not commit adultery.

  • You shall not steal.

  • You shall not bear false witness against your fellow.

  • You shall not covet.

    Book summary:

    Her broad statements like "the feminist movement has become hostile to heterosexual relationships in general" and her tendency to react to callers in anger may offend, but if you can put aside her ratings-boosting fits of temper, you'll find some solid advice in 10 Stupid Things Couples Do to Mess Up Their Relationships. While Dr. Laura Schlessinger excels at placing blame, her bluntness can be refreshing, and with chapter titles like "stupid priorities," "stupid egotism," and "stupid liaisons," you know right where she stands on issues like career commitment, perceived selfishness, and extramarital relationships.

    Much of the book has been created from letters written by listeners of her show. These personal anecdotes are used to illustrate points and provide examples we can all relate to; given their tremendous variety, you're sure to find some that click with you. They make the book an easily absorbed read and provide a welcome break from Schlessinger's angry tirades on premarital sex, addiction, and the general "stupidity" of the human race. Behind her anger, you'll find suggestions on taking time to really listen to each other, ways to respect each other's needs without catering to selfishness, and a firm belief that relationships are nearly always worth saving. --Jill Lightner

    Book summary:

    Everything will be okay ... once you admit that Dr. Laura's always right. This companion volume to the radio advice factory's 1994 bestseller (which tackled the stupid things women do) serves up plenty of the no-nonsense, old-fashioned morality that her legions of listeners love. Brutally reductive--but not necessarily wrong--this book chalks up men's problems to trying to save "damsels in distress," refusing to admit to a healthy dependence on others, climbing the career ladder to the detriment of your relationships, denying the duty and pleasure of child-rearing, and many others. Whatever your personal reaction to her brassy, unapologetic style, Dr. Schlessinger is a refreshing antidote to the wishy-washy "everything's relative and everyone's different" trend that held sway for a time. Ten Stupid Things Men Do to Mess up Their Lives contains a lot of good advice--even though it has as much in common with instant soup mix as with therapy.

    Book summary:

    The first in a series of children's titles by radio talk show host Dr Laura Schlessinger, Why Do You Love Me? is a warm and fuzzy 32-page picture book about unconditional love. Unlike the treasured, bunny-centred Guess How Much I Love You, Schlessinger's text--aimed for a similar, if slightly older, age group--is intended to be based in reality. You won't find any fantastical elements here, just a straight conversation between mother and son about the enduring love the mother feels for her child. Unfortunately, the story's low-key, "slice of life" approach isn't reflected in Daniel McFeeley's exaggerated, cartoon-like line drawings--a stylistic merging of R. Crumb and Jim Davis's Garfield.

    Schlessinger delivers an important message beneath the Sunday comics-style presentation: a mother's love is forever and always, no matter how her child behaves. Sammy thinks he might be loved because he's good at sports or acts helpfully around the house. No, Mother explains, it's because "he's the one and only Sammy there will ever be in the whole world-- and you're mine. And that's enough for me to love you all the time". Then Sammy asks if there is ever a time when she doesn't love him, and he offers suggestions of recent bad behaviour. "I did not love the yelling, or the hitting, or cleaning off the crayon marks," says Mother. "But I still loved you". Further she says that "...the love in my heart is like the sun in the sky. It is always there, even when you can't see it". The mother here is never shown to be distracted, overwhelmed, snappy or sad--and parents may bristle that there's no real discussion of the existence or whereabouts of a parent's love when working, absent, sick or tired. (Dr Laura would ask now, "Who cares? It's your kids we're thinking about here".) This story is meant purely to comfort the young child who fears that parental love comes and goes at whim. At that, it fully succeeds. (Ages 3 and older) --Jean Lenihan, Amazon.com END
