I haven't read this book but I think it's central thesis is very sound. I make a similar point in one section of my recently-published fourth book, 'THE MARRIAGE DELUSION - the fraud of the rings?' Details on www.themarriagedelusion.com. I'm offering 10 FREE copies to Amazon customers who post something original and interesting and about marriage and happiness (or the lack of it) in this forum, and explain why they'd appreciate a copy of the book. Thanks. Mike Buchanan, twice-divorced-now-happily-unmarried British writer. Email: email@example.com.
