The national bestseller Second Chances has radically transformed the ways we think about divorce, and its message continues to gain greater resonance as more research on the long-term effects of divorce is completed. Based on the renowned psychologist Judith S. Wallerstein's landmark study of sixty families, this insightful report on the first decade after a breakup reveals the emotional, economic, and psychological impact of divorce -- on adults and especially on children. An instructive, reassuring, and sensitive account, Second Chances should be "required -- and eminently rewarding -- reading for anyone interested in the contemporary family" (Nancy Chodorow, Ph.D.).
