Marriage on the Brink?
New Book Gives Insight Few Others Offer
(NAPS) Everyone knows that U.S. marriages have a tragic 50 percent
failure rate. And second marriages are nearly an exercise in futility, failing
a staggering 60 percent of the time.
However, a new book has improving these
sad statistics squarely in its sights.
Tomi Tuel, a self-proclaimed Divorce
Warrior, has penned 101 Things I Learned
After My Divorce, a heartfelt and funny field
guide to divorce recovery. In a moving and
light-hearted journey, the book shares
universal truths about the emotional process
of divorce – and the stages along the
road to renewal. In 101 Things, Tuel
shares her insights and real-world
experience to help readers grapple
with their own reality while
providing an oft-needed humorous
diversion from the emotional chaos
of shattered relationships.
John Gray, Ph.D, author of the
bestseller Men Are from Mars,
Women Are from Venus, says succinctly: [Tomi’s book] is “charmingly
uplifting, insightful, and funny.”
“This excellent book is long overdue,”
says Jeffery Bernstein, Ph.D., author of
Why Can’t You Read My Mind?
“Tomi takes a positive, up beat and constructive approach to a subject
that touches us all,” adds Stephen Lundin, author of Top Performer and the
four FISH! Books.
For most, seeing the warning signs of divorce isn’t enough; we need
tools to fix relationships that are broken. Tuel helps readers see how they
may have contributed to their own relationship woes and offers tools (from
the ‘Tuelbox’ at the end of each chapter) to help avoid, self-diagnose and
even cure problems. Tomi, who says “There are no completely innocent
spouses.” is fearless in her approach. She isn’t afraid to tell readers what
divorce counselors don’t on such topics as post-divorce dating, getting
from despair to indifference, and achieving the ideal divorce.
At its core, 101 Things is a remarkable resource to help those in pain
find perspective and realize there is life after divorce. As her book
recounts, Tomi found peace after her divorce and now is a frequent
speaker to audiences, large and small, on divorce recovery. She has
remarried and lives with her husband and two children in Sacramento,
California. 101 Things I Learned After My Divorce is a must-read for
anyone facing divorce, or for an interested bystander who wants to better
understand the tribulations of a Divorce Warrior. For book information or
