In her 1997 best seller, "How Could You Do That?! - The Abdication of Character, Courage, and Conscience," Dr. Laura Schlessinger promotes personal responsibility through her provocative and always stimulating moral dialogue with callers about everyday ethical dilemmas.
In her lively, pull-no-punches style, Dr. Laura takes on the moral dilemmas of our time; from the mindless pursuit of pleasure and immediate gratification to taking the easy way out when the consequences are uncomfortable or problematic. She demonstrates in no uncertain terms that personal values are never someone else's responsibility, only your own. She explains that, by resisting self-indulgence and rising above temptation, we can discover true happiness in the moral high ground.
Whether you're raising children to be kids of character, or you're trying to build (or rebuild!) your own – “How Could You Do That?” is meant to guide, inspire and help you live a meaningful, fulfilling, honorable life. Follow Dr. Laura's "3 Cs" -- Character, courage and conscience-- to prevent life's common dilemmas, restore and repair your spirit, your relationships and your life.
"Mother of 3" rates "How Could You Do That?!" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ on Amazon: This book changed my life. 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.
"JVS" rates the book ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ on Amazon: A book that truly changed my thinking and therefore my life. 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.
"Jin Kim" rates the book ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ on Amazon: 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 what 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.
"Lidkin" rates the book ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ on Amazon: You're getting to know yourself and better understand the people that surround you. Everyone would benefit from this book big time. It's like looking at yourself in the mirror and seeing your character naked whether you want to admit to it or not. As soon as your mind wants to play a trick on you and come with un excuse why you did something or didn't do it, you get an awakening slap in the face with the truth.
