    1. Thanks to NetGalley and Publishing for the chance to read and review an advance reader s copy of Doctor Is In, The Dr Ruth on Love, Life, and Joie de Vivre.I originally wanted to read this book due to the description of Dr Ruth s life sounding very intriguing From being separated from her parents and ultimately left an orphan during the Holocaust, to joining the Haganah, a paramilitary organization in Palestine, and being trained as a sniper, it sounded very unexpected based on what little I kne [...]


    2. The Doctor is In by Dr Ruth Westheimer is a free NetGalley ebook that I began reading in early April I had chosen to read this book due to my being on a bio bent, but also because I love Dr Ruth s open mind, free spirit, and 80s chic.Having gone back to school to pursue social sciences, I expected this book to have a bit of a disciplined academic flow to it, but no If you look back up at its subtitle, you ll find that it includes the phrase joie de vivre, which pops up just about every other pa [...]


    3. Galley provided free for review by netgalley I really wanted to like this book I know that Dr Ruth is typically known for discussions about sex, and that s well and good, but I was excited about reading a little about her life She has lived several lifetimes in her 86 years, and I wanted to know about her experiences There are some good lessons in the book, but after a while, reading the book starts to feel like sitting with an elderly relative who has Lessons to Impart Dr Ruth s ideas about j [...]


    4. I grew up in New York listening to Dr Ruth on the radio She was so warm and inviting and gave such sound advice I have always admired her courage, her zest for life and her strong presence I was surprised therefore by her book The Doctor Is In in which she gives advice on how to live life with Joie de Vivre and get the most pleasure and joy that we can In this book, Dr Ruth seems different her voice is shallow, distant and repetitive Basically the book is a guide on how to handle the vicissitude [...]


    5. Not my kind of book Superficial, self congratulatory, name dropping There s an interesting story there but she tells it very poorly.


    6. 2.5 stars, and I guess I wish I could give it , but also surprised I finished this book Dr Ruth has had an incredible life, in both highs, and extreme lows I fully support not letting your lows trap you, but it got a little repetitive through out the book I haven t read many autobiographies, so I may not be the best at determining the best way to go about talking about all your accomplishments with out coming across as egotistical, but this felt a little bit that way I did enjoy learning about h [...]


    7. I remember Dr Ruth talking candidly about sex on radio and television back in the 80 s Accent aside, hers was a unique voice because of her focus on educating without shocking or titillating her audience She brings this same frankness to her second autobiography and fills its pages with upbeat advice based on her astonishingly varied some tragically life experiences Overall, a very positive view of an eventful life that s still going strong at 86.I received this book for free through the First R [...]


    8. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley for review This is such a fun little book It s not exactly a linear tale, but a mixture of Dr Ruth s life story, experience, and advice I ve always been interested in her and this book really piqued my interest even I will be reading her actual autobiography after this She s obviously full of life and joy and this book reflects that This is not the deepest book on her life or on sex advice, but if you aren t really familiar with either this pr [...]


    9. Dr Ruth is still keeping her cards close to her vest, but her story is still a remarkable one I guarantee that you ll get tired of the expression joie de vivre, but you ll also learn how to live your best life May we all have as rich an experience as Dr Ruth has.


    10. Read this book if you are bored, in a funk, feeling like you re rapidly aging, etc There is so much to Dr Ruth than sex advice an adorable accent Her story is fascinating and her life advice is invaluable.


    11. I wasn t aware that Dr Ruth was sent to Switzerland at the age of ten and lost her whole family She was a sniper in the Israeli army and was married three times Being able to read an 8.99 book for free is a great perk of Prime Lending.


    12. This was interesting to learn about Dr Ruth s personal life I learned things about her that I didn t know about She has had an interesting life.




    13. Thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity to review this book before official release date.I loved it Whimsical, practical and plain fun.


    14. Delightful What a fun and inspiring story Not a self help book It s stories and some instructions on how to live with joy.


    15. Lust und Liebe f r ein erf lltes LebenDer Stil, wie Dr Ruth K Westheimer ihr neuestes Buch Lebe mit Lust und Liebe Meine Ratschl ge f r ein erf lltes Leben geschrieben hat, gef llt mir ausgesprochen gut Sie beschreibt darin Szenen aus ihrem eigenen Leben, gibt dabei viele Emotionen von sich selbst preis und bietet uns Lesern danach in kleinen Beispiel Episoden Tipps f r ein gl cklicheres Leben Sie tut dies nicht mit dem erhobenen Zeigefinger, sondern sagt, jeder solle nur die Zutaten aus ihrem B [...]


    16. This book works much better as an autobiography of Ruth Westheimer than a self help book A better topic for Dr Ruth would be resilience, rebounding from bad circumstances, and reinvention I am using this terms in a respectful manner.Dr Ruth has survived the Holocaust, being badly injured in the Israeli war for Independence, two divorces and widowhood She has gone from poverty to wealth In addition she has gone from having very little formal education because it was interrupted because of the Sec [...]


    17. I received 2 ARC s for this honest review The author and publisher provided an ARC via NetGalley as a Kindle download and I won a paperback copy through.Genre NonfictionFrom an orphanage in Switzerland, allowing her to escape the holocaust, to the active life of a busy 87 year old, Dr Ruth has lived her life with Joie de vivre Joie de vivre is french for joy of life Excerpt from the book Joie de vivre literally means, joy of life , but what it really describes are those times when you just feel [...]


    18. I won this book from I like to read books about interesting people and Dr Ruth is a little power house Everyone knows Dr Ruth as the sex therapist, but she is truly much than that This book focuses on her life Dr Ruth was born on June 4, 1928 as Karola Ruth Siegel She was taken to a German Jewish safe camp with around 100 other children after her father was taken from the family home by Nazis Dr Ruth was trained as a scout and a sniper by the Hagenah the Jewish paramilitary once she immigrated [...]


    19. I ve previously enjoyed hearing Dr Ruth s interviews and guest appearances on TV I can honestly say I learned from the book several things about her that I didn t know from her early life that were interesting, but really felt the book was based in ego which killed it for me It s wonderful that Dr Ruth found her calling and commands attention wherever she goes, she d earned her fame on that I will agree But the level of almost entitled and ego driven behavior and attitude really changed my view [...]


    20. Story Entertaining, serious, charming, and full of joie de vivre 3.5 starsNarration Absolutely perfect for this nonfiction book Warm, expressive without being too expressive , let the humor shine through Did not annoy 3.5 4 stars


    21. So this is one of those books that I enjoyed, but I d hesitate to recommend because I d be afraid that it would reflect poorly on me and my taste The thing is, there are some great little anecdotes in this memoir and if I heard them directly from Dr Ruth while sitting around her kitchen table, I d be fascinated She was sent of Germany to an orphanage to flee the Holocaust and gave her only doll, her only toy even, to another crying little girl on the train She was a sniper in the fledgling Israe [...]


    22. My Godmother recommended this book to me To be honest, I don t think I would ve read this if she hadn t told me how much she enjoyed it I always equated Dr Ruth with sex from her radio show That s all I really knew about her But, from losing her family in the Holocaust and then being shipped to Sweden alone when she was 10 years old, to later becoming a sniper and fighting for Israel and almost losing her life , I never imagined what this small, happy woman had gone through What s amazing is tha [...]


    23. Thanks Netgalley for a copy to read and review A testament to someone who has not only lived through some of the worst things in the worlds history but has thrived Most Americans know Dr Ruth as the sex therapist on the radio offering help to people with questions about sex This book details though what a wide and varied life Dr Ruth has lived Through the Holocaust, orphanage, Military history, education, television shows, radio shows, documentaries and her active work in the fight against AIDS [...]


    24. Oh my gosh, I just love her I want to have lunch with her, hear her tell me stories and just soak in her joie de vivre I honestly did not know too much about her other than she is the grandmotherly lady who talks about sex but she truly is an amazing woman and an inspiration to all.The book is a little jumpy and conversational, which I do not mind and it reminds me of speaking to my Grandma or Great Aunts If you are looking for a self help book, this is not it This is a collection of stories, an [...]


    25. Grabbed this book off of the library s shelves to listen to while waiting on some books I had on reserve to come in Dr Ruth has definitely lived quite the life Definitely not an enchanted one but one with much action and worldly experience And with everything that has happened to her her attitude is so great I had no idea that she survived the Holocaust but as an orphan Or that she was a sniper in the Israli resistance Crazy.I m glad I read this book I do hope I can keep Joie de Vivre going in m [...]


    26. Besides getting a really good sense of her quirky personality, such as when she asks to be placed up on a shelf so she could see during a lecture she s really short , the largest focus is on her joy of life It is amazing that in spite of many hardships, such as escaping the Holocaust while her parents didn t, she can remain so positive Dr Ruth includes advice for how to not hide away from sad events, but to move past them I highly recommend it.


    27. a quick, easy, charming read dr ruth is not only a famous sex therapist but a survivor of the holocaust, who lost her entire family to the Nazis and was orphaned at 10 even incredible, she was a sniper for the israeli army in her early 20s her advice on living a joy filled life is simple, practicle, sensible and the woman is than adorable really, sincerely enjoyable, a suprisingly inspiring read A


    28. A very good book and a good introduction to the woman we know as Dr Ruth I would have given this book five stars but towards the end, I found it focused a bit too much on her celebrity life as opposed to her human side It s hard to relate to stories about meeting Madonna or Paul McCartney or being nominated for a Grammy and so these scenes became a bit boring for me.But I do appreciate her wisdom and her advice I learned a lot from her.
