- By: Dr. Laura Schlessinger
- Narrated by: Dr. Laura Schlessinger

Women want to be in love, get married, and live happily ever after. Yet disrespect for men and disregard for the value, feelings, and needs of husbands has fast become the standard for male-female relations in America. Those two attitudes clash in unfortunate ways to create struggle and strife in what could be a beautiful relationship.

I loved the book
I didn't like the audio book. Laura speaks incredibly fast, with a tone of voice that makes it hard for me to listen to and completely follow what she says. Instead of relaxed and at peace, I find myself stressed and tense, from what she says and how she says it. I've enjoyed the book on Kindle before, but listening to it hasn't at all given me the same joy.
She shares invaluable information, has plenty of good points and while I disagree with her about a lot of things (Christianity, the need for marriage, staying together for the good of the children, and a few other things), this is a good book.
It's just not a good audio book.

- Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health
- By: William Davis MD
- Narrated by: Tom Weiner
- Length: 7 hrs and 32 mins
Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

This is a brilliant book, but...
... don't buy it if what you're looking for is unbiased information. The author tells you, clearly, from the onset that he doesn't think wheat does anyone any good at all.
Personally, I find this book absolutely fascinating. I've enjoyed listening to it, and it's interesting to hear about so many studies that have been largely ignored by the medical community. He speaks a lot of Celiac disease, weight loss and diabetes, among other things. I've found information here that I've never heard of before, which in and out of itself is quite astounding (I belong to that nerdy group of people that read and listen to this for fun).
Sometimes I do find that I can only listen to the audio book for a short while, before wanting to shout "Yes, I get it, wheat is bad!" at the author, which is the only downside I've found so far. Well, I'd also like that he'd name what studies he's referencing when and from what year they are, so that I can look those up for myself, but that's a minor detail.
All that said though, this is a good book, well researched, well thought out, well read and fascinating - that's why it gets four stars from me.
