Even having never been divorced and currently very happily married I found the book to be of enormous help to me with other kinds of interpersonal challenges, too. The principles transfer very nicely to conflicts with friends, loved ones, colleagues and supervisors alike. Judge Lowrance has an engaging writing style that makes the concepts built from her years of experience leap off of the page and straight into practice. I found that it hit the nail on the head over and over. I recommended it to a friend who has been divorced for over 10 years who found it immensely helpful in healing long neglected and damaging emotions that had been dragging her down for a decade. Absolutely the best help self-help book I have read.
