Amazon.com Review

Laura Schlessinger takes the quotation marks off the phrase "bad behavior," and makes an impassioned argument against the self-indulgent subjective morality rampant in our society. Following her previous New York Times bestseller, 10 Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives, Dr. Laura Schlessinger -- the internationally syndicated radio superhost who reaches 15 million listeners per week -- argues effectively that doing good leads to feeling great.

From Library Journal

While not a physician or psychologist, Dr. Laura, as she is popularly known, is a favorite self-help guru. Her first book, Ten Stupid Things Women Do To Mess Up Their Lives, was a best seller. Dr. Laura appears here as she appears on her popular radio show. She''s tough, she''s judgmental, and she''s very right wing. Dr. Laura''s premise is that character, courage, and conscience should be incorporated into our everyday living and decisions. With conversations from her radio show as the backdrop and biblical references throughout, she shows how this can be done. The problems are varied, and readers will surely find something they can relate to. Given the popularity of Dr. Laura''s first book, this book will be in demand in most public libraries, especially in those markets where her radio show is aired. Larger libraries should consider multiple copies.?Priscilla Davis Dann, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., South Euclid, Ohio

From the Publisher

Following her phenomenal New York Times bestseller, Ten Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives, Dr. Laura Schlessinger delivers a witty, wise and workable moral philosophy based on the principle of personal responsibility in her hard-hitting new book. How Could You Do That?! argues passionately against the self-indulgent, subjective morality used in our society to excuse all sorts of bad behavior.

In her lively, pull-no-punches style, Laura Schlessinger takes on the moral dilemmas of our time, from the mindless pursuit of pleasure and immediate gratification to taking the easy way out when those actions produce ugly or uncomfortable life-altering consequences. She demonstrates in no uncertain terms that personal values are never someone else''s responsibility, but our own, and why choosing not to honor them actually compounds unhappiness. Finally, she explains that by disciplining self-indulgence and rising above temptation we can discover the infinite pleasures -- the true happiness -- of the moral high ground.

Prominently featuring Schlessinger''s spirited, touching and profound moral discussions with callers on her top-rated internationally syndicated radio program, How Could You Do That?! is not only a compelling argument for an ethical approach to life, but an invaluable inspiration to rebuilding conscience, character and courage.

Yes, it sounds dramatic, but it''s no less sincere. This book changed my life. Dr. Laura will always have an honored spot in my heart (even though she can be harsh, even though she is sometimes rude, even though I don''t always agree with her) because she helped me to realize why it is worth working to be a good person; it sounds so simple, doesn''t it? But so much of our culture is "do what feels good, do what you want, you deserve it." She pulled me to be a better person than this by ruthlessly pointing out the consequences of living by whim and desire of the moment. Reading the stories of other listeners illustrated the long term effects of some of the actions that seem irresistible at the time. This book provided a road map of who I wanted to be and who I eventually became. Character, courage and conscience. She taught me in this book "you are what you do," that there is a "ripple effect" and long term consequences to every choice and behavior, and that history is not destiny and that we choose who we are whatever our past. Absolutely great read. I pick it up and re-read it again every few years. And I am always inspired anew to be a better person. Love this book.

It is hard to put into words how much this book changed my outlook on life. It challenged what I thought at the time. Initially I was not a fan of the book at all. In fact it made me angry. Ha!! It took me a while before I reluctantly finished the book. Once I got into the book I couldn''t put it down until I finished it. It helped make me a better person...a more responsible...a more conscious person.

I liked this book because it reminds us to be accountable and responsible for our actions. We should always do the right thing in every situation. That being said, however, the exception I take with this book is that Dr. Schlessinger truly doesn''t take into account being human. Humans have emotions and sometimes, depending on the situation, it is extremely hard not to act on strong emotions. Sometimes we ARE manipulated into acting out of character, simply because we''ve not had particular experience dealing with these types of situations. And how do we become people of character without experiences and the opportunity to act on what''s right? Overall, this was a good read, but I think she could be a bit softer in her perceptions of human beings.

I love Dr. Laura. She can be harsh sometimes, but I think she is spot on the money. Sometimes you need to know that you have to get out of your own way, or to take a long hard look at yourself and your behaviors and actions. There is no beating around the bush with Dr. Laura, but she says she needs to be said. I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone, as I think it is necessary to take a step back and make a personal examination.
