Reviews - What do customers think about Complete Divorce Recovery Handbook?
Half-baked Jan 8, 2002
Rev. Splinter has a good idea of the larger steps of divorce recovery, but he fails to grasp the finer details of the process. He follows the general (sexist) stereotypes of the 70's generation of divorces, where the woman is uneducated and "helpless", and the man is "unable" to express or deal with his emotions. Splinter's observations of various personality types seems rather old and stereotyped as well, and his approach can be heavy handed. Perhaps you might read this book at a general guide, more "food for thought" than a "complete" recovery handbook.
I have taken Mr Splinter's workshops in St Louis, and like them much better than his book. They wonderfully combine the guidance of the leaders with individual expression, and the groups are always packed full. I highly recommend them.
Complete Divorce Recovery Handbook Nov 24, 2001
The book a lot of talk but not any real long lasting answers. It was not practical in its approach for my situation. I found Larry Crabb to be far more helpful as his books gave me more Spiritual centerness in his writings and it pointed in a direction where we could find strength and answers beyond ourselves in terrible times of turmoil.
An excellent, step-by-step guide to recovery. Oct 16, 1998
A comprehensive step-by-step primer for divorced individuals, this book combined just the right mix of psychotherapy (75%) and spirituality (25%). Clear, well-organized chapters each conclude with enlightening exercises. The book also makes a great reference document you can return to when appropriate, even after having read the book in its entirety.
