You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

"Divorce - Creating a Collaborative Process" Sunday July 21, 1:30PM PST - LATalkLive

This week’s guests: Michelle Daneshrad, Certified Family Law Specialist & Founder of San Fernando Valley Collaborative Professionals, Steven Garelick, Certified Public Accountant- SFVCP, James Walton, Mental Health Specialist- SFVCP

Ending a marriage is a very painful process. There are many feelings to process, decisions to be made, and lives to separate. While divorce is never fun, it does not have to turn into a "War of the Roses." Join me and a team of collaborative divorce professionals as we explore how to divorce with dignity, cooperation, and integrity. There really is a way to get through the process without excess amounts of anxiety, fear, rage, and injury. You deserve it, your kids deserve it, and the people you love deserve it.
