Wow, what a terrific mash-up of legal and therapeutic advice about divorce and dealing with everything that comes with it! This book didn’t just show me how to move through the process of divorce as an empowered person, but shed light on many other aspects of the legal system that were previously as clear as Chinese algebra. Easy to read, totally common sense, and a great tool for anyone scratching their heads about how to move forward and embrace change.
