This is a great book for those going through separation and divorce. It is insightful and so helpful. It’s gives great tips for coping in a healthy way and staying balanced through such a tricky time. It isn’t over complicated or intimidating either. It has really helped me and I would highly recommend it to anyone in the same situation.

Very practical and sound advice

Really enjoyed this book, very practical advice. It's short, concise but full of good information. My only issue is with the narrator. As the writer is British I would have preferred he narrated it or another British person narrated it as it does have some UK focused info such as the CAB. But thats me just being nit picky, the book was overall very good!
