This is the 'must-read' book on annulments. It is the best book on the subject, bar none.

This book explained the entire annullment process in terms a layperson could understand. The book is divided into question/answer segments, all relevant and easy-to-understand. The best resource I've found on an often confusing topic. A must-read if you are considering annullment or need to answer those who question the process.
