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 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.
