Every woman has experienced her Big Breakup, the one that shakes her core and makers her feel she doesn't want to fall in love ever again. This book gently caters for those who have suffered from The Big One. While there are many casual breakup guides on the market, as well as those that offer breakup revenge tactics, none illustrate just how fabulous moving on can be. Lisa Steadman tells readers that a breakup is not about being "broken". Rather, she reminds women that a breakup is about celebrating who they are and figuring out how to pick themselves up after the fall and move on. It's about a breakup, not a breakdown!

The Divorced Dad's Survival Book: How to Stay Connected with Your Kids shows how to navigate the process of getting a divorce so as to minimize the negative impact on one's children. The goal of the book is to show how fathers can use the divorce to improve their relationship with their kids. David Knox, a divorced father of two, presents a book designed to show fathers how to replace the fear of losing their children with insightful knowledge of what the children may be experiencing during the divorce and offers specific suggestions on maintaining and improving relations with them. The father-child relationship cannot only survive but also triumph over divorce through conscious and deliberate planning and execution.
This book provides practical hard-to-find help to fathers who are separated from their kids. It covers various relevant areas from legal and financial to emotional and recreational. This work is delivered in a down-to-earth and accessible style.
The Custody Minefield is an essential self-help work for mothers, fathers and grandparents wishing to resolve residence and contact issues related to separation and divorce, and is intended for parents separating in England and Wales under the jurisdiction of the English and Welsh Courts.
It's extraordinary that there is no other book to help parents reduce the pains of divorce for their children. Both professional authors work in the areas of family support and family law. They have deep experience of the cause-and-effect problems that relate to divorce. This book draws on the questions children ask and the feelings they hide. These are organised as sub-headings under each new topic. The book explains in clear, simple terms how to anticipate problems, avoid unneccessary harm and, of course, what action to take if things have gone wrong.
