Aimed at younger audience. More of a how to than in depth analysis. Too general in scope. Covers a lot of ground-maybe too broad. Good place to start but real help requires more depth.
I would have been lost without this book to guide me. I'm so extremely grateful to Dr. Clapp and the publishing house for getting this book out there.
We're 3 years post separation and my children and I are doing exceptionally well. I credit a lot of what I did right to what I learned in this book.
It's a great all around resource that covers the many different aspects of divorce/divorce recover, and even some good basic advice on what to expect during the worst part of a divorce - the legal wrangeling phase. The book also has lots of good information on how to help your kids during through the challenging times of a divorce.
I have given copy after copy to people who are going through divorces and they have all found it useful.
