I am a woman and read this book for the benefit of my fiance and his daughter. While there were some excellent tips for figuring out a good strategy for winning custody battles, the examples of men's situations and numerous defeats was depressing! I was especially surprised by the number of men implying that their former spouses just suddenly went nuts and started acting crazy. If men can't get a CLUE, then they shouldn't get custody. If you're a man and you like the idea that women for the most part are stupid, bi-polar, and downright vindictive then you'll love this book. I do have to say that the advice given on looking for a good lawyer, and how to "act" in the courtroom were fairly good. If your ex is so awful that you feel propelled to read this book, I recommend "Joint Custody with a Jerk" instead.

This book was very well written and a valuable resource for fathers who have had their child kidnapped by an uncaring mother. The book exposes the judicial system for what it is-CORRUPT. Judges, lawyers, and their supporting cast are like the lions eating the Christians. Unfortunately, these despicable people have zero regard for children or other people, but only for the money that they can extract at the expense of other people's pain and conflict. It is ironic that those in charge of the judicial system should be the ones locked up behind bars for what they do is far more criminal than a typical crook. This book is good ammunition against these judical despots.

Although none of the reviews, or summaries of this book mention it, this book is intended for only the true Christians. In the preface, last paragraph, the author states this book is "written from the Christian perspective" and goes on to say "and for this I make no apology". As a non Christian, I found this book unreadable by the third page. For a Christian, I can not comment. I felt the publishers misrepresented this book and sold it under false pretenses.

I just read the book and as a product of divorced parents I found it to be quite informative. I was comforted to learn that there are many, many people in my shoes. I would recommend this book to both people going through divorces, lawyers, and adult children of divorced parents.

Fighting For Your Children July 10 2011

The tips in this book are unbeatable! You can go online and search blogs and articles, but reading this book will put the best strategies in your hand. It tells you what to do to win, what not to do so you won't make costly mistakes, but most importantly, it tells you exactly what each step will be and how it feels to make each step. It's like having your own crystal ball, giving you the ability to plan ahead and see the consequence or reward of each decision you make. If you value your relationship with your children or even if you just want to "stick it" to your ex wife via court, you cannot afford to not buy this book!!

what dads should look like when going to court Aug. 8 2004
By C. Yanda - Published on Amazon.com
Numerous case studies are cited which are very interesting to read. There is also an excellent section on what dads should look like when going to court (hint: no flashy cufflinks, expensive suits, etc.). Very good read.
