I have many years experience facilitating divorce recovery workshops and support groups and mediating divorce settlements. I have attended a workshop / seminar conducted by this author. This is one of the best books available on this topic. Divorcing or divorced parents would do their children and eternal favor if they would read and FOLLOW, i.e. LIVE, the advice of this author. I consider Stahl a tremendous resource and a man with a heart.
