I read some of the other reviews for this book and was totally frightened, just not frightened enough to keep from buying it. And I made the right decision.

As it turns out, this book does not at any point tell a divorcing woman to lie, do anything illegal, or even act in a mean-spirited way. I think a couple of these reviewers only read the title, and the title isn't an accurate description- it's a total exaggeration meant to help sell more books.

This book is full of great advice and walks people through a complicated and painful process. It advises women to be prepared for the worst, but it also makes a point of telling women how much better things are when they make an effort to mediate, negotiate, and compromise. It's not really about hitting anybody where it hurts and more about making sure your divorce doesn't mean letting your unscrupulous ex-husband take everything.

In fact, it occurs to me that that's probably what's bothering the negative reviewers. Maybe they think if they trash the book enough wives will just roll over and take any deal they're offered in a divorce?

Attention angry he-man woman-haters posting before me: Just so you know, making dumb comments in the Amazon reviews won't really make a dent in the number of ladies reading this book. Also, you need to let go of whatever has you throwing your weird little e-tantrums. This isn't healthy.

Seriously though, you should get this book if you're going through a divorce. Even if you're a dude. Just switch the pronouns around. It's helpful.

I understand how this book would make someone feel "dirty", but seriously some of us have respect for the law, the truth, honor & integrity, only to have found ourselves smacked with the cold hard reality that our spouse has NO consideration for any of those things.

What then? Do I let my alcoholic spouse run around in desperation telling everyone I'm a drug addict so that he could be awarded custody and avoid child support/wage garnishment? And let him seal up all of our accounts since I always trusted him with his name only on the "business" accounts? Let him believe that the business we built together is results in "his own income", while "I should get my own job" so that I have my own income? But also doesn't believe that he should pay for some training after 10 years of falling behind in technology, supporting him, and raising children?

Some of us NEED this book because we were naive enough to fall for and trust someone who turned out to be a lazy, back stabbing, honorless jerk, who would much rather lie his A** off and trash the person who was their best friend for 10 yrs, than pay child support.

Shower-needers? You should thank your lucky stars you didn't get dragged down into this muck. Those of us already in there never planned on it, but still need to get out.

You must read this book if you are being victimized in your divorce. It explains the different mental states of your spouse and predicts what they will do next using scientific mental analysis! It was right for me and this book helped me stay several steps ahead of my spouse THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!

As an attorney, I know all too well how important it is to have a thorough understanding of legal issues and proper representation. Too many people are afraid to ask questions for fear of appearing ignorant. This book is a must-read for anyone contemplating separation, divorce, or child custody issues.

Ms. Donovan's practical, easy-to-understand advice will guide the reader through the often precarious minefields of understanding and defending her rights, whether she is representing herself or working with a lawyer.

The worksheets and tips enable readers to directly participate in their cases and anticipate the issues that will inevitably arise.

I got this for my daughter ,, but too late. Her attorney was no match for her husband' s and she will not get enough $$ for child support , let alone enough to live on. Husband used a great trick... They owned a business together with their son. But Dad was too upset that she filed for divorce ( his addiction to alcohol & pornography was the last straw ) so he couldn't work. The son carried the business & made 70% of sales. So on paper, dad doesn't make enough $ to support her and the kids. can't get blood out of a turnip. But now that the divorce is final, he feels better & is selling like crazy...
The negative reviews seem to reflect the pain of men who have been " had" in their divorces. If they had used this book, perhaps they would have been protected. Sherri writes to men in the book also; if they had read the book they would have known that.; if they had read the book perhaps they would be writing a different review..
I've been married over 50 years and we were unprepared for the attack that our daughter endured nor equipped with knowledge of the law to help her. Had we read this book earlier, there would have been a different outcome I'm sure.

I recently was challenged to read this. I am so disgusted that any woman thinks this way! You married a man and entrusted him to father children with you; how dare you go to such great lengths to cause his relationship with his kids harm! Taking a man for all he's worth (literally) puts him in a place where he can't fight for custodial changes if they are deserved or necessary. If I had a friend who followed this book, I would be absolutely disgusted!!
