I was browsing online today on Amazon.com, looking at its bestsellers list for DIVORCE BOOKS. Why? Well now that I have decided to commit to writing regularly on the subject of divorce – and others!- it made sense to see what was already out there to help folks deal with their divorce and separation issues. There is a lot!
In the compilation below, I have chosen just 10 Divorce books that you could find interesting. A few deal with divorce and custody, divorce & children which are subjects we have tackled quite a bit on Divorce Saloon, and which is a topic that will be explored in my next trilogy of books about divorce. At the end of this list, I provide you with the link to my blog about books I am working on where you can see what book I am up to. (I have decided to write 100 books! Though not all of them will be divorce books)
I can tell you that I just completed the 3 part series on How to Divorce and all 3 are available in paperback version as well as in the Kindle store.
So without further ado, here is the list of good divorce books as seen on Amazon Bestsellers list:
The Good Divorce by Constance Ahrons“This book provides timely and welcome news: in more than fifty per cent of divorces today, couples succeed in dissolving their marriages, yet preserving their families. Constance Ahrons examines the complex dilemmas couples face as they separate as spouses while remaining connected as parents, and once and for all dispels the myth that divorce inevitably leaves emotionally troubled children in its wake.;It also serves as a guide to responsible divorce.” Published 1994
Too Good to Leave Too Bad to Stay by Mira Kirchenbaum“A book that deals with that most crucial of decisions – should you stay with your present partner or should you go? Brilliantly incisive, witty and extremely informative.” published 1997

The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce by Judith Wallerstein“In 1976, Judith Wallerstein began a 15 year study of 131 children whose parents were all going through a divorce.

Wallerstein was rewarded with a portrait of each of their lives as she followed them from childhood, through their adolescent struggles and into adulthood.” Published in 2000.
Fred Stays With Me. by Nancy Coffelt“Fred Stays with Me! is an award-winning story that follows a young girl who turns to the one constant in her life, her dog Fred, in the face of her parents’ divorce.

Splitting by Bill Eddy Divorce is difficult under the best of circumstances.
“When your spouse has borderline personality disorder (BPD), narcissistic personality disorder (NPD), or is manipulative, divorcing can be especially complicated. While people with these tendencies may initially appear convincing and even charming to lawyers and judges, you know better—many of these “persuasive blamers” leverage false accusations, attempt to manipulate others, launch verbal and physical attacks, and do everything they can to get their way.”

“In Co-parenting with a Toxic Ex, a nationally recognized parenting expert offers you a positive parenting approach to dealing with a hostile ex-spouse. You’ll learn to avoid the most common mistakes of co-parenting, how to avoid “parental alienation syndrome,” and effective techniques for talking to your children in a way that fosters open and honest response. In addition, you’ll learn how to protect your children from painful loyalty conflicts between you and your ex-spouse.” Published 2014.
