The irrepressible Dr. Laura takes aim at people who are stuck in bad patterns because they talk instead of act, give up easily, lack perspective, or wait for others to change. Concise vignettes and questions from her radio callers are catalysts for cogent insights and hard-hitting advice. The advice is presented smorgasbord style, so listeners can sample it anywhere in the program and be enlightened. This is a soothing audio as well because Dr. Laura's principles are so universal and because they're delivered by a narrator who is completely dialed in to the author's humanitarian tone. With her appealing vocal clarity, Lily LoBianco sounds perfectly at home with herself in this lovely recording. She wisely doesn't try to channel Dr. Laura's impatience and know-it-all radio personality. T.W. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2008]
