It provides checklists that help you to set and realize your goals more efficiently and to monitor your progress. Packed with case studies that illustrate common experiences and effective coping strategies, this practical guide takes you step by step through divorce and its aftermath and offers a firm foundation on which to build successful new beginnings.
