Divorce: The Middle-Aged Man's Survival Guide | [Zackary Richards]

Divorce: The Middle-Aged Man's Survival Guide

There are plenty of normal, decent women out there. This book isn't about them. This book is intended for the men who worked steadily over the last 20-plus years, helped their wives raise the kids, attended all their plays and sporting events, mowed the lawn, took out the garbage, fixed the sink, were patient and understanding during that "time of the month", and fully expected to be married for the rest of their lives. Then out of nowhere, the women they'd loved, honored, and cherished for the last two-plus decades couldn't stand the sight of them....

Publisher's Summary

There are plenty of normal, decent women out there. This book isn't about them. This book is intended for the men who worked steadily over the last 20-plus years, helped their wives raise the kids, attended all their plays and sporting events, mowed the lawn, took out the garbage, fixed the sink, were patient and understanding during that "time of the month", and fully expected to be married for the rest of their lives.

Then out of nowhere and for no discernable reason, the women they'd loved, honored, and cherished for the last two-plus decades couldn't stand the sight of them and would do anything, (yes, and I mean anything) to get out of the marriage. If this is what you're going through, then you need to read this book. Why? Because I have been where you are now and you're going to need to know what to expect, how to react, how to defend yourself, and how to cope with what might very well be the most difficult period of your life.

    Story
    "He's Nailed It!"

    No matter what this seems to be the core. It may get amplified, or reduced by people and the situations their in, but this is the core string of it all.
    This gave me insight and understanding, and made me understand there are things I will never understand, into why after 20 years it has to end. And it made me laugh in the process.

    Story
    "If is inevitable and if it is not amicable"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Book might be okay for someone who is past the point of no return and needs to prepare their defense against an adversarial soon-to-be-ex. If hope remains, this book is not for you. I was looking a book that was more geared to preparing me in the event that everything went south. Prepared: emotionally, legally, and how to move forward, handle the grieving, help with the grown children, etc.


    What was most disappointing about Zackary Richards’s story?

    Story lacked requisite detail to understand how his case is similar or dissimilar to mine but soon into the book it became apparent that his situation was very different than mine.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Zackary Richards’s performances?

    Yes.


    What character would you cut from Divorce: The Middle-Aged Man's Survival Guide?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.

    Story
    "Outstanding - IF You Are Unresolved!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely a 'Must Read' if you're a guy (of ANY age) who is or has divorced. If you're still 'hoping' to reconcile or even 'unresolved' if the divorce has been filed or finalized, then give this book a try. It's like have five or six sessions with a therapist ... an excellent running-head-start on the road to recovery, healing and moving on!


    What did you learn from Divorce: The Middle-Aged Man's Survival Guide that you would use in your daily life?

    This book is like talking to that close friend you never had and who walked down that painful and lonely road. No BS here - just a very real look at divorce from the man's view point.


    Any additional comments?

    The quality of the recording is not the best - however, the content more than makes up for it.

    Story
    "My Mom Needed This Book"
    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    This is a blue collar flavored tale. Part of the time I thought he was running some sort of Colbert Report, making a character and half the time I thought he was serious. Every time he mentioned "that time of the month" I certainly gritted my teeth.


    What did you learn from Divorce: The Middle-Aged Man's Survival Guide that you would use in your daily life?

    When someone suddenly can't stand the sight of you and you can't even figure out who this person is and where the person you love went, consider the possibility that they are experiencing guilt at the very sight of you. My mom knew this. She used to say "The thing about mudslinging, mud sticks best to clean skin." Great advice. Wish she had taken it for herself, right at the beginning of my parent's struggles.


    Any additional comments?

    Men can deal with the situations described, I'm sure of it. However the women I know are more likely to deal with the problems mentioned. An eye opening look at the savage side of love.
