5.0 out of 5 stars A Self-Help Book for our Ailing Society April 6, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is an important major critical analysis of American social thought and legal theory. It provides us with a surprising, contemporary look at divorced American fathers, as well as American families and our society in general. With this book, Jeffery Leving also launches a radical critique of conventional legal thought and social reality, which has been too often used to camouflage the culture of gender bias and injustice. This is one of the most provocative books written by an American lawyer in recent years. Although titled as a self-help book for divorced fathers, it is in reality much more - a self-help book for our ailing society. It is my hope that this book will be the basis for new discussions concerning the effects of gender bias upon future generations of Americans and cause us to identify, reassess and correct those biases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Divorce dad's please read. February 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This puts it all in perspective. It's good to see that there is someone who understands that divorced dads need help and guidance. No one knows everything so it's good to get good advice where all perspectives are covered with rational explanations.

This is a book about healing. Having gone through a pretty vicious divorce and subsequent custody battle as a child, I can definitely relate. I actually read that both President Barack Obama and Francis Cardinal George of the Archdiocese of Chicago both recommended this book. It amazes me that two such different leaders from very different walks of life could agree on one topic - fathers need to be involved in the lives of their children.
