    Wouldn't it be nice if you could sit down with an attorney who normally charges $600 per hour and receive expert legal advice on what is no doubt one of the biggest decisions you will ever make in your life?

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you're looking for entertaining thoughts on marriage and divorce, you might enjoy the ruminations of celebrities; Mr. Barondess is rather fond of name dropping.


    What was most disappointing about Mark Barondess’s story?

    Although this book was enjoyable, it wasn't anything close to providing serious, straightforward $600 legal advice. There was nothing I didn't already know. (Example: the best advice to avoid divorce? Don't get married.) If this is the kind of thing he's charging $600/hour for, might as well go with the cheap divorce lawyer.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mark Barondess?

    Mark was a fine reader; he was enjoyable to listen to. The production quality was fairly low. You could hear papers shuffling, a handful of mis-reads and startovers, and some weird pronunciations. But I wouldn't disregard the audiobook for that reason.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Blah. Okay to listen to, but I got nothing out of it. If you marry the right person, you can be happy. If you don't, divorce is miserable. No surprises here.
