Insightful,smart and empowering. I bought it for a friend, and after previewing it, I wish I had had such wisdom given to me when I went through my divorce years ago.

No one who's married really wants to think about divorce--it's not going to happen to me, right? But just like you should have a will (you know, just in case), you should read this book now. I have enjoyed Ms. Pesoli's articles in the Huffington Post and other publications for years--they are helpful, funny, and honest--and this book brings it all together. Whether you are headed for divorce, in the throes of one, or still reeling from a battle with your ex, this book is for you. You can have a "good" divorce or a "bad" divorce, but either way, as Ms. Pesoli says, divorce sucks. She helps you come to terms with that fact and then gives you the tools to get through it. From taking care of yourself, to dealing with lawyers, to handling child custody issues--Ms. Pesoli covers it all. She even gets you ready for post-divorce life. When should you start dating? You'll find the answer in Part Five. Important note: this book is also great for friends of divorcing couples. It will tell you how to provide the best kind of support and be a BFF extraordinaire instead of a faux friend. Great book!

I am a single gal that's never been married, much less divorced, so why do I think this book is a MUST READ?  Two reasons:  (1) We all have close friends or family members that are going through or contemplating divorce and this book has given me the tools to help talk those individuals (primarily women) through some of the issues they're facing in a smart and life-isn't-ending-it-could-actually-be-beginning kind of way; and (2) I was not expecting this at all...but even as a single woman I felt more empowered after I read this survival guide to not only post-divorce life but to life in general.  I actually found myself applying much of Pesoli's advice to my own life....from the reference to Eminem's "Cleaning Out My Closet" to the fantastic travel and budget tips to remembering that we are not defined by any one topic or hardship...that we're all much more complex and fabulous than that.  Pesoli's tone is matter-of-fact, non-judgmental and always full of just the right level of humor and lightheartedness.  I really love this book.
