  • Didn’t Like the Set-Up

    The book's subtitle promises expert advice, and this couple could certainly be considered relationship experts, as he is a divorce lawyer and she is a family therapist. So they see it all, from both sides of the spectrum and all points in between. But, to me, the way they set up this book was not such that it delivered any “expert advice.” Instead, they share a ton of personal stories from their life as a couple and as parents, including dialogue and their thoughts. That's honestly what the bulk of the book is. While transparency is generally an excellent thing, this felt like too much to me. I don't know my own parents as well as I know this couple now. Each of the five core sections has a set of questions at the end that the couple can ponder and discuss; perhaps this would have been more effective if they had put a question or two with each story rather than at the end of a long, multi-part section. Each story within the core sections leads off with a quote from the person who wrote that section; that line or two is the only thing that could be construed as “advice” in the book. I guess you're supposed to draw your own conclusions from each story, and they consider that to be giving expert advice; a key takeaway or two beyond the initial quote for each story would have been nice. This way of sharing information didn't quite work for me. I also didn't like the profanity and use of other crude words. I just don't think that belongs in any book, fiction or nonfiction. All in all, I was disappointed in this book.

    Thanks for your feedback!
