If your goal is to raise healthy children and for them to survive your divorce, this is the book for you. It's easy to read and chock full of great ideas.
I divorced 30 years ago and today my 2 children are productive well-adjusted adults who enjoy a good relationship with both parents. I lived many of the ideas in this book years ago, but I just recently used it to help me organize a combined family holiday dinner for the first time!
So I recommend using this book to guide you in overcoming rese

I don't usually give books that are not literature a five star rating but if you are divorced or going through a divorce with children this is a must read. Almost all divorces are contentious and can get quite ugly. If you have children it is in your best interest and most importantly your children's to be the adult and do everything in your power to not-take the bait from your ex by continuing to fight and you should cease being antagonistic.
As the book says your ex is a master of pushing your

This is a rich, valuable book. It took me awhile to read through it because I found the exercies so worthwhile to do. The book contains a treasure trove of information, tools and exercises that helped me get through and transform a challenging relationship, which wasn't actually with a spouse. With the help of the book, I have grown in ways I couldn't imagine I could. I plan to reread the book relative to another challenging relationship I have. And I have recommended the book to two friends who ...more

Very clearly to the point written book. I know a few people that should read this. I would have rather the references be at the end of the book or bottom of page though. Other wise this was a really eye opening even funny at points read. 5 stars on hitting the nail on the head!!!
