Book Review for Divorce Solutions the predecessor of this new book

Expertly written by Ed Sherman (a specialist attorney in the complex field of divorce), Divorce Solutions is a straightforward and "user friendly" guide to minimizing the pain, problems, and costs caused by marital divorce. From advice for protecting one's rights, negotiating agreements, and personal care worksheets, to ten ways to divide property without fighting over it, dealing with emotional issues, sample marital settlement agreements, and more, Divorce Solutions offers professional advice, insights, recommendations, and instructions in plain terms which are completely accessible to the non-specialist general reader. Divorce Solutions is very highly recommended and invaluable reading for anyone considering or in the process of a divorce.
