What People are Saying About This

Megan Abbott
"Crackling with hardboiled patter and insider goods, Sex, Love, and Money transforms the business of divorce into the stuff of pulp fiction, low farce and grand tragedy. A detective, legal wonk and father confessor, Gerald Nissenbaum, along with co-author John Sedgwick, offers an exuberant expose that shuns cynicism in favor of bemusement, empathy and a giddy celebration of man's tenacity and capacity for folly."--(Megan Abbott, Edgar-Award winning author of Queenpin and Bury Me Deep)
Joseph Finder
"Sex, Love, and Money is the Kitchen Confidential of divorce - a deliciously gossipy, scandal-filled, insider's view of the high-stakes, big-money world we rarely get to see. "--(Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of Vanished and High Crimes)
Norman M. Sheresky
"With wit and wisdom, this amazing book shows how the rich disassemble their marriages, dishing vivid examples of how some clients take greed to a whole other level. The authors' description of the "victims" rings true-sometimes funny, sometimes tragic. As a fellow matrimonial lawyer, I know this book tells it how it is and I highly recommend it. A fast read with sound advice."--(Norman M. Sheresky, former President NY Chapter American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Emeritus Diplomat, American College of Family Trial Lawyers)

Mike McCurley
"Sex, Love, and Money is the first and only book I've read that captures the true essence of the practice of family law, exploring the causes-and effects-of divorce from an insider's perspective. As entertaining as it is useful, Nothing else you will see or read will provide the breadth of knowledge and insight available here."--(Mike McCurley, McCurley, Orsinger, McCurley, Nelson & Downing, Dallas, TX, former president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and diplomate of American College of Family Trial Lawyers)
