She has strong convictions and doesnt hesitate to voice them to callers. She urges women emphatically to lose a domineering jerk of a lover and pick one of the good guys, to stay home and parent the babies theyve made, and to follow the dream rather than some dreamboat. Above all, she exhorts women not to blame anybody or anything but themselves if theyre unhappy and their lives seem a mess.
10 Stupid Things Women Do to Mess Up Their Lives uses real-world examples from Schlessingers radio show and private practice to drive the message home.

Once we muster the courage to take responsibility for our own problems and to tolerate the discomforts of risk, the possibilities for personal growth and joy are limitless.If youre looking for an all-approving hand to hold, you wont find it here.
