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.

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.
