1.0 out of 5 stars If You Must. Feb. 11 2011
I was told by a psychologist that I must read this to gain access to my daughter. I did not approach this book filled with anticipation.

The book has some important information, but like many self-help books, it starts to run on about a third of the way through as the author struggles to make his pamphlet-sized idea big enough to market as a book.

Most of the important information is available on his web-site so the purchase of this book hardly justifies the investment of time or money. Moreover, PAS has turned into an over-inflated, popularized problem that is reeking havoc for many separating families. Books such as this only make the problem more widespread, so I hate to subsidize the author.

There are several ways that the the author could have more meaningfully filled those later pages. The most obvious thing for Darnall to address is the irony of his assertion that if you are a serious PAS offender, you won't past about the first chapter. (Yes, I read the whole book.) So who is the target audience? This book becomes a cheerleader's handbook for the promotion of PAS allegations. This leads to a more sickening irony where allegations of PAS, become themselves alienating. He needs to put clear limits to how PAS is defined, and discuss false allegations of PAS, and how to respond to those allegations.

This book would have been vastly improved if the author had taken a much broader, more objective, and complex perspective on the problem. If he had taken a book-sized perspective, he could have had a book-sized book.

5.0 out of 5 stars My own PAS story March 29 2003
My name is Christine. I have been dealing with being a custodial parent for 6 years and now for the last 6 years a non-custodial. I've been dealing with PAS (Parential Alienation Syndrome) for years ...
This book is a GREAT BOOK. Informative and very insightful as to the complexities of PAS ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Exercise! Oct. 24 2001
I actually have a better time reading anything if it has some sort of practical work related to the reading. I enjoyed Dr. Darnall's book because it offers this treat. It is a treat in that you will be surprised at your abilities, or lack thereof, to grasp important information and determine better how to use it.
In this book, Divorce Casualties,it opens your practical mind to the depth, height, breadth and width of the subject--how to protect your spouse's , children's and your relationship with each other while going through this, the toughest of times.
I have my own sick story, but my being the targeted parent just got more insight because I am learning from this book some things that I did not think were a hazard to my children--that I am responsible for. The execises in the book helped me open that door upstairs that used to only be opened by me. Now, I have a practical list of tips to check myself on when I am with my children, thus, I am able to share my time more effectively with them, and be the strong, loving parent they need.
After all, they are the most precious things in our lives. Are they not? If we are not thinking THAT from the opening and the closing of this book, then it will be a waste of our time to read it. You must be able and willing to admit your role in the subject of this book, and, therefore, be willing to make needed changes.
It is a great thing to have read this book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as helpful as I had anticipated... June 16 2000
By A Customer
My expectations were a little high for this book. It was written very well, I was just disappointed in it. It just reinforced my feelings as to how unfair parental alienation can be and how so little is being done in the courts to discourage this. I guess I was hoping for a "miracle answer" to this problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Parental Alienation May 31 2000
By A Customer
This book put into words and explained what was happening to me & my children in my divorce. This book is outstanding and very helpful to anyone who is having trouble seeing their kids or dealing with a spouse who uses the children as a weapon for hurt. This book gives good advice on how to proceed once you have identified that parental alienation is taking place.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! April 28 2000
By A Customer
What a fantastic book! This should be required reading for all divorced parents. If you think you handle divorce and visitaion well, think again! I thought I was doing great with my step-son until I read this book and realized some innocent things that I have said to him are NOT appropriate. What an eye opener. Thank you
