Library Journal Review

Amidst the plethora of divorce mediation material now available, this book by psychotherapist Butler and attorney Walker helps simplify the issues. Organized in a no-nonsense question-and-answer format, it is meant to be used as a starting point for those considering mediation over a traditionally litigated divorce. The authors touch upon major issues such as parenting and financial decisions but also address special situations including unmarried and gay/lesbian relationships. Although information is pared down to concise, easily digestible sections, readers are given ample resources for further guidance, including a list of web sites and a state directory of qualified mediators and organizations. Other useful books on this topic are Diane Neumann's Choosing a Divorce Mediator (LJ 12/96) and Paula Jones's The Divorce Mediation Handbook: Everything You Need To Know (LJ 7/97). Highly recommended for public libraries.ÄAnnette Haines, Central Michigan Univ. Libs., Mount Pleasant (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
