Publisher Comments:

Finally in paperback, the New York Times bestseller that has fundamentally changed the way children of divorce see themselves as adults--updated with a new preface by the author.

Divorce is at once a widespread reality and a painful decision, so it is no surprise that this landmark study of its long-term effects should both spark debate and find a large audience.

In this compelling, thought-provoking book, Judith Wallerstein explains that, while children do learn to cope with divorce, it in fact takes its greatest toll in adulthood, when the sons and daughters of divorced parents embark on romantic relationships of their own. Wallerstein sensitively illustrates how children of divorce often feel that their relationships are doomed, seek to avoid conflict, and fear commitment. Failure in their loving relationships often seems to them preordained, even when things are going smoothly. As Wallerstein checks in on the adults she first encountered as youngsters more than twenty-five years ago, she finds that their experiences mesh with those of the millions of other children of divorce, who will find themselves on every page.

With more than 100,000 copies in print, The Unexpected Legacy of Divorce spent three weeks on the New York Times, San Francisco Chronicle, and Denver Post bestseller lists. The book was also featured on two episodes of Oprah as well as on the front cover of Time and the New York Times Book Review.

Synopsis:

Finally in paperback comes the bestseller that has fundamentally changed the way children of divorce see themselves as adults--updated with a new Preface by the author.

This is a truly amazing book and study. A must read whether you're the child of divorce, in a relationship with a child of divorce or have children and are considering (or have had a divorce). Never married and no longer together counts as well. You will definitely recognize yourself or the ones you love in some of these cases. I picked up a copy on a whim and was totally engrossed in it immediately. I loaned my copy to a friend and it was never returned. I'm going to pickup another copy the next time I am at Powell's.
