Description
Packed with research, insights, and illuminating (and often funny) examples from Paris's own divorce experience, this book is a "practical and reassuring guide to parting well." --Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project
Engaging and revolutionary, filled with wit, searing honesty, and intimate interviews, Splitopia is a call for a saner, more civil kind of divorce. As Paris reveals, divorce has improved dramatically in recent decades due to changes in laws and family structures, advances in psychology and child development, and a new understanding of the importance of the father. Positive psychology expert and author of Happier, Tal Ben-Shahar, writes that Paris's "personal insights, stories, and research" create "a smart and interesting guide that can be extremely helpful for those going through divorce."
Reading this book can be the difference between an expensive, ugly battle and a decent divorce, between children sucked under by conflict or happy, healthy kids. This is "a compelling case that it's high time for a new definition of Happily Ever After--for everyone" (Brigid Schulte, author of Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time).
