Honolulu-based divorce lawyer Coates (University of California Los Angeles) combines his legal perspective with thoughts on the emotional, economic, psychological, and social aspects of divorce in his advice to readers undertaking the process. The nine chapters progressively address topics that include: statistics on divorce, ideas for marriage preservation, causal factors of divorce (with sections on changing family structures, the women's movement, abuse, and sex), specific considerations for men and women both younger and older, age-specific impact on children, custody and visitation arrangements, tips for the courtroom, legal issues (includes property settlement, alimony, child support, insurance, resumption of maiden name, premarital agreements, and common-law marriage), and life after divorce. The author also offers brief case histories demonstrating strategies to adopt as well as to avoid. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
