"Sex, Love and Money is the Kitchen Confidential of divorce-a deliciously gossipy, scandal-filled, insider's view of the high-stakes, big- money world we rarely get to see."
-Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Vanished and High Crimes
"With wit and wisdom, this amazing book shows how the rich disassemble their marriages, dishing vivid examples of how some clients take greed to a whole other level. The authors' description of the "victims" rings true-sometimes funny, sometimes tragic. As a fellow matrimonial lawyer, I know this book tells it how it is and I highly recommend it. A fast read with sound advice."
-Norman M. Sheresky, former President NY Chapter American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Emeritus Diplomat, American College of Family Trial Lawyers
"Crackling with hardboiled patter and insider goods, Sex, Love and Money transforms the business of divorce into the stuff of pulp fiction, low farce and grand tragedy. A detective, legal wonk and father confessor, Gerald Nissenbaum, along with co-author John Sedgwick, offers an exuberant expose that shuns cynicism in favor of bemusement, empathy and a giddy celebration of man's tenacity and capacity for folly."
-Molly Abott, Edgar Award-winning author of Queenpin and Bury Me Deep
"Sex, Love and Money is the first and only book I've read that captures the true essence of the practice of family law, exploring the causes-and effects-of divorce from an insider's perspective. As entertaining as it is useful, nothing else you will see or read will provide the breadth of knowledge and insight available here."
-Michael McCurley, McCurley, Orsinger, McCurly, Nelson & Downing LLP Dallas, TX, former president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and diplomat of American College of Family Trial Lawyers
"...As one who has been in the trenches for 42 years myself, I can tell you that Jerry has captured the best and the worst of [divorce] stories. He has done what his peers have threatened to do, [showing] the inside story of divorce litigation with humor, compassion and reality."
-J. Lindsey Short, Jr., ShortCarterMorris LLP Houston, Texas; former president, American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers; Diplomate, American College of Family Trial Lawyers
"The gut-wrenching nasty tactics of divorce are fully exposed in Gerald Nissenbaum and John Sedgwick's Sex, Love and Money...these fascinating cases are compelling, riveting and engrossing. A must read."
-Robert Stephan Cohen, Esq., Cohen Lans LLP, New York City; Diplomate, American College of Family Trial Lawyers
