Dr. Phil McGraw has galvanized millions of people to "get real" about their own behavior and create more positive lives. His nationally syndicated daily one-hour series, "Dr. Phil," has been making headlines and breaking records since its September 2002 launch, when it garnered the highest ratings of any new syndicated show since the launch of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" 16 years prior. The hit series draws on Dr. Phil's many years of experience in psychology and human functioning. He began his television career as Oprah's resident expert on human behavior. Now, Dr. Phil continues to deal with real-life, in-the-real-world issues with his signature style. Dr. Phil is the author of six Number One New York Times bestsellers: Life Strategies: Doing What Works, Doing What Matters, Relationship Rescue: A Seven-Step Strategy for Reconnecting with Your Partner, Self Matters: Creating Your Life From the Inside Out, The Ultimate Weight Solution: The Seven Keys to Weight Loss Freedom, Family First and, his most recent book, Love Smart: Find The One You Want, Fix The One You Got, which was released in December 2005. He is also the author of The New York Times bestseller The Ultimate Weight Solution Cookbook: Recipes for Weight Loss Freedom as well as The Ultimate Weight Solution Food Guide. His books have been published in 37 languages with more than 23 million copies in print. Dr. Phil also provides strategic guidance for millions of Americans through his monthly column in "O, The Oprah Magazine."
Robin McGraw has made "family first" her mission. Married for 29 years to Dr. Phil, Robin has made her marriage and raising their two sons Jay, 26, and Jordan, 19, her priority in life. A constant presence on the "Dr. Phil" show since the first episode, viewers worldwide have embraced Robin's contributions to the show -- whether it is discussing her experiences as a mother and wife or dealing with issues that women face in the many phases of their lives. Robin has also co-hosted many television events with Dr. Phil including "Christmas in Washington" and "Academy of Country Music Awards." Coming up, Robin will be a featured speaker at several Women of Faith events across the country in 2006. She is also a board member of the Dr. Phil Foundation.
