I'm actually a financial advisor and read this book as a refresher to my knowledge around divorce, so my review comes from the perspective of someone who's already relatively competent in this area.
This book teaches a lot of the important things you need to know if you're considering a divorce or are in the midst of one. However, I wish the book was written more concisely, and I'd give readers a word of caution with how salesy the book can be at times. Because all of the essential information is there, in a format that most people will be able to understand, I give it 3 stars.
I would have given this 4 or 5 stars if it felt like it was written cohesively as opposed to just stringing together a bunch of his previously written blog posts and if it didn't feel like he was just trying to use this book as a sales ploy to buy the 5 other books in his 6 part series More Details of my Review: Unfortunately, I found the organization of topics to be decent at best, with the book jumping around from one topic to the next and back to previously mentioned topics without a very good flow to it.
As with almost any book of this sort, you can find all this information online. The good news of structuring the book like this, jumping back and forth to various topics, is that it does a good job of beating the content into your memory since it says the same thing over and over again The one thing that really bugged me about it though was how often the book repeated itself verbatim. For instance, it felt like most chapters had at least a few sentences 'recycled' word-for-word from another chapter, and in other more significant cases I found a few instances where he copy-and-pasted multiple paragraphs in a row directly from other chapters.
That's not necessarily a bad thing, since I fully agree that divorcees should build a team of professionals as he suggests one of which should be a competent financial advisor.

All I'm saying is to just keep his salesiness in mind and periodically question the motivations for his specific recommendations. The salesiness really shines through too when you consider how many times he tries to build his brand "Think Financially, Not Emotionally" and suggests you continue reading more of his other books in the series He has 6 books in the series! If this book is any indication of what his other books contain, they will do a fantastic job of repeating what he said in this one a few more times with potentially one or two nuanced points and a couple extra references to using him as a financial planner.
Oh also, as other reviewers have mentioned, apparently you can get all this content for free online if you just read his blogs. He apparently wasn't shy with copy-and-pasting from his blogs into this book either, likely why it's so repetitive and disorganized - as if it were just a bunch of various blog posts strung together So women I would immediately put yourself first, don't ever think it will NOT happen to you.
I thought that for 35 years. A must-have for the stay-at-home spouse who's up against divorce. Something he doesn't say: Think like a detective and keep documentation, including printing out texts. This book is a little bit dated, but you will get a thorough list of what to do to prepare for a divorce. Do not hide your head in the sand.
Someone needs to take care of you, and he might be gone now, so you have only yourself; separate your emotional wreckage from your care-taker-self, and just do it. You will be glad you did, later on when you have recovered from this, because the aftermath of a divorce is long term. In most states, you can go back for a modification in child support every 2 or 3 years, but this book covers the initial divorce where you divvy up all assets. My divorce has been final for a long time now. However, having compared notes with so many other women with children, every single one has a story of how their soon-to-be-Ex got them to agree to less child support, less of the assets, or whatever, because they felt sorry for them, or they trusted them for some dumb reason.

One woman's story struck me hard: He did not support his children, either. She supported her kids on a Walmart job while he got a new wife. Which reduces him to a DNA-donor at best. Please put on your no-nonsense hat when dealing with your ex. The least said, the better. You can always give him money later, if you must. But what happens in court is binding; that decree is your only shot at future-proofing your financial future and that of your children.
The child support will go to whomever makes less historical salary plays a part. Whatever you do, do not lie or otherwise try to mislead a judge. If you must, back out of the court proceedings and tell everyone you need to think about it and then get a new lawyer and a new judge assigned. I had a really Pro-Dad judge nothing wrong with that who decided to override my already-agreed-upon decree not fair to me because I had given up all child support and wrote in a clause himself because he felt the agreement was not fair to my soon-to-be-ex who makes more than I do.
I was shocked; and I signed.
I could have chosen not to sign it and waited another 2 months for a new court date and a new judge. My lawyer was so inexperienced, he did not advise me one way or another and I thought I had to sign that divorce decree because it could not be changed. If you have a bad feeling about yours, listen to your intuition. Get the docs that they have made to date and go find another lawyer.
Reviews online are manipulated by lawyers, BTW. Try getting a referral from a friend. Judges are just people and have opinions about what "should" be, and will interpret the law so as to color it to their opinion. A purple shovel still works like a shovel, but most people seem to expect a regular looking shovel! That's what judges do.
As an engineer, I had some dumb idea that judges are impartial. Bite your tongue and don't say anything. Take the high road on that one and talk about him to your friends when the kids are not around. Your children will be VERY aware of his flaws when they get older.
Until then, they need to feel like they can trust you. I cannot speak to everyone's situation; I am speaking about my own. My parents are still together. And my ex was not a demon, just an idiot. This applies both ways; shortly after my divorce, my brother got divorced he's a pastor, and it ruined his ability to be a pastor forever when his wife left him for another man, in his denomination. But she is an engineer, and now he is getting child support from her.
So the shoe CAN go on the other foot Family court is a racket: If you want to know more, watch "Divorce Corp" on Netflix.
It's a really ugly part of the American legal system. Be careful and best wishes. Ladies find a bag, box, trash can and dump your emotions during your divorce. Don't think for one second crying helps you win. Put away the tears while in court and during negotiations bring them out at home alone.
