Get The Real Story On The Woman America Loves To Hate
Quick with comebacks, slinging zingers and dispensing advice, Dr. Laura is today's hottest radio personality. Sixty-thousand people call her syndicated talk show every day hoping to get on the air to be abused and berated. Twenty-million people tune in to hear what Dr. Laura might say next. And 2.5 million people have bought her bestselling advice books. But few of those listeners and readers know the truth about the woman behind the mike-and a life filled with contradictions, cover-ups, and shocking secrets. Now this unauthorized and unexpurgated biography dares to tell about the marriage she destroyed, the friends she betrayed, the family she abandoned, and the lies she tells. . .
Read, in stunning detail, about:
* The childhood that haunts her with a legacy of unhappiness
* Her first marriage and quick divorce, a break-up she hides while she chastises callers for leaving relationships
* Her current husband, the once-happily married professor she chased-and caught
* Her private practice, and the former patients who say their therapist is the one who needs help
* The puzzling estrangement from the mother and sister she shuns off the air, while preaching family values during her show
* The bizarre behavior that has provoked rumors about the fragile woman behind the hard-talking public persona
* And much, much more!

Vickie L. Bane is a special correspondent for People magazine and the co-author of The Lives of Danielle Steel. She lives with her husband and two sons in Colorado.
"This is a book that tells what other people perceived or observed about the Laura Schlessinger who, for whatever moment, walked through their lives.
Over the years, Laura evolved from a daughter into a mother. She earned a doctorate, got married, got divorced, had her tubes tied, had them untied, got married again, had a baby, embraced Orthodox Judaism, and, in between, became a radio superstar.
This book attempts to fill in the spaces between the commas. It is not a hunt for flaws so much as it is a study of defining moments: those periods of time or those significant life choices that have an impact, that shape the person to come.
We are all products of how we were raised and the times in which we lived.
By walking in Laura's footsteps through a life that has already spanned more than fifty years, perhaps her listeners, fans and critics alike, will more clearly be able to form their own impressions of the person who is Dr. Laura." -from the Foreword
