This is a book about the financial fallout of divorce. It focuses on the plight of women who, despite their increased presence in the work force, often have little knowledge of their family's finances. Miller is a financial planner who writes from her experience in working out property settlements for divorcing couples. She offers case histories and uses charts, budgets, sample financial plans, settlement agreements, and vocational reports to illustrate the economic issues that must be addressed when ending a marriage. Her book covers what to do in the days right after the partners split and how to address long-term needs like pensions and retirement planning. While acknowledging the emotional impact of the process, Miller stresses the need to be pragmatic and to begin to think through the economics of the situation the moment divorce becomes an option. Women at all stages in the divorce process and with all levels of experience with money will find this to be a methodical, objective preparation for making coherent decisions about their finances. Recommended for legal and financial collections.-Joan Pedzich, Harris, Beach & Wilcox, Rochester, N.Y.
