Publisher's Summary

The doctor is in! America's best-loved therapist, Dr. Ruth, is known for her wise counsel on all matters of the heart. Here she shares private stories from her past and her present and her insights into living life to the fullest at any age.
Everyone knows Dr. Ruth as America's most famous and trusted sex therapist, but few people know she was raised in an orphanage in Switzerland, narrowly escaping death during the Holocaust - or that she was an ace sniper in the Israeli army. After years spent as a professor in Paris, Dr. Ruth came to America with big dreams and even bigger chutzpah. And, at the age of 87, she is as feisty as ever.
Through intimate and funny stories, Dr. Ruth sheds light on how she's learned to live a life filled with joie de vivre. And she shows listeners how they too can learn to deal with tragedy and loss, challenges and successes, all while nourishing an intellectual and emotional spark and, above all, having fun! Hilarious, inspiring, and profound, The Doctor Is In will change the way you think about life and love in all their limitless possibilities.

Excellent sex advice from a sensible educator

Narration: charming, lilting, comforting style.

Content: excellent advice from a respectful sex educator not embarrassed to speak explicitly about sex at its best.. Perfect for the novice, especially young people just exploring their sexuality. Actually, this listen is so tastefully done that the entire family would benefit from listening to it together, which would then facilitate subsequent honest discussion.

A bonus is that we learn about Dr Ruth's fascinating, courageous life. What a marvelous role model for us all.

What a wonderful and inspiring book!

She had always been one of my favorites, and it's nice to read this book by her! She really has great hints for just getting the most out of life. I was lucky enough to meet her once! No, I wasn't one of those women who follow her to the bathroom, she approached me after a play I was in to ask about my body piercings! I love how bold and curious she is. Everyone world get something out of this book!
