Kurzbeschreibung

According to the statistics around one in three marriages ends in divorce. Much to my surprise and sorrow my own marriage was one of them. At the time it was an enormous shock - it wasn't the path that I wanted or had chosen, but it was the path I was given.

Fortunately my two daughters, aged 12 and 14, decided that they wanted to live with me and, together, we rebuilt our lives.

In the beginning I was sad, angry, frustrated and scared that I would not be able to cope with my new life. But I was wrong. Gradually I learned how to deal with the trauma and loneliness of separation, manage a house, balance work and home life, find new love - and, most importantly, become a better father.

This book tells my story. It is not intended to be a 'how to' guide. I wrote it to provide encouragement, advice and ideas to help men firstly survive and then excel as single fathers, and also to share a laugh over some of my experiences.

I wrote it because when my own marriage failed, I couldn't find a book to help me. I hope this book shows all soon to be, newly, or long term single fathers that there is life after divorce - and that it can be a good one.

2.0 von 5 Sternen The scarlet letter revisited 24. August 2014
Von TDS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Loved the book. Well written and very funny. However, this book is about self-affirmation. Mark the central character, wants to share with his readers that he is the one with integrity, morality and adequacy. It’s also about revenge.
I’m not discounting the after effects of a family break up and that Mark seems to have done a wonderful job. However, he does comes across as a very insecure person. Throughout the book there were just a little too many reminders of how much of a good guy he is. He liked to recall the two incidents involving his daughter writing, ‘dad, I love you ‘on the window (with permanent marker, no less). Rubbing in that he was the preferred parent and that he is the hero. We don’t know much about the ‘evil’ wife so we, the readers, don’t really know what happened to make her have an affair and leave the family home, except his version that it was to be with the ‘soul mate’. Neither his ex-wife nor the new partner were referred to by name, instead using the term ‘wife’ or ‘ex-wife’ and the ‘soul mate’ which created a disconnect between reader and characters.
I just felt it wasn’t enough that Mark’s daughters loved him and, by his accounts, was the preferred parent, he had to embarrass his ex-wife on the world stage. It reminds a little of the book ‘The Scarlett Letter’ where the protagonist has to wear scarlet ‘A’. I was not convinced the book was written as self-help for single fathers.
Pros
• some helpful tips on financial arrangement laws
• good tips about time management
• how to calmly and maturely set parameters for a new partner who is entering into the family dynamic
• good mention of personal regrets in the previous marriage and how to avoid repetition
• good reminder that mature people need to use protection when engaging in sex
Needing more clarity
• how to manage teens going through trauma of a break up
• what are some of the most challenging issues that need most attention
• what were the sharing arrangements and how successful were they
• what did not work and how would you change it
Overall, a good entertaining book - just be open minded with a critical mind.
4.0 von 5 Sternen love, parenting 29. August 2014
Von GEM - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I think Mark has some very interesting insights and advice on family, love, parenting...etc. For example the decision he makes to be married than live-in the second time as a value he wanted to set for his children is priceless. He also expresses his feelings very well through the trauma and heart break. Somewhere by the two thirds of the book I wasn't sure if running lives using management consulting practices is the right advice but certainly there were some good problem solving thinking in there. Great read. Make a judgement on how much of this is a "getting back on the perpetrator" spin.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Well written and funny 12. August 2014
Von vivi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The author writes really well, and has a great sense of humour. Even though the book is targeted at single men, as a married woman I still loved it. I informed my husband he would read it too, since there are many lessons there I hope he learns without having to go through a divorce. To be honest though, I did not have to tell my husband to read it: he was very curious to know why I was laughing so much while reading the book. He is reading the book and laughing occasionally while I write this review.
5.0 von 5 Sternen laugh out loud 12. August 2014
Von Colette Greenall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I laughed out loud at some of the anecdotes in this book . I love that even though the author has had his life torn apart he copes and not only that he flourishes . Seems to me that the message in this book is that not only can we cope when life throws us a curve ball but how we cope can be the making of us ...nothing is sexier than a man who makes you laugh out loud !!!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic! 17. April 2013
Von ABC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A hilarious and honest account of a tough modern day topic, demonstrating to others the challenges that were faced and overcome and the positive outcomes that resulted
The author used humour in a tasteful way and made this a very enjoyable read. Could not put the book down. Would highly recommend!
