Listen to this controversial, previously banned book that Howard Stern calls "required reading" for any man (or woman) even considering divorce! Newly revised and updated.
Unlike other divorce books, this one preaches no stay-together sermons and offers no sugarcoated, politically correct guidance. How to Dump Your Wife: Practical Advice for the Good Man Trapped in a Bad Marriage is about knowing that sometimes a marriage is simply beyond saving, regardless of whether a desperate or vengeful wife can accept the fact. Irreverent, funny, and brutally honest, Lee Covington teaches men to survive divorce despite a legal system in which the cards are heavily stacked against them. Her practical advice on withstanding the emotional and financial ravages of divorce focuses on how to survive three types of wives:

"You've got to read this incredible book! When I read it, I actually thought the author was a guy." (Howard Stern)
"With chapters like 'Breaking the News,' 'Prepare to Unload,' and 'With or Without a Girlfriend'... it covers all the basics." (The Seattle Times)
"Extremely helpful and a fun listen"
I would never have bought this in the bookstore because, frankly, I would have been embarrassed. But it's far from a misogynistic tract as the title might suggest. It's humorous, uplifting and written by a compassionate lady with a lot of wisdom and legal smarts. Not sure what the previous reviewer was complaining about -- I didn't have any problems with the audio quality (the sample is representative -- you be the judge) and there were no "missing" or "extra" portions. Also, the band featured (though I've never heard of "Splitsville" before or since) was pretty darned good. Oh yeah, and Bababooey!
"The digestible truth about Divorce"
The documentary movie Divorce Corp.
The real truth about divorce in America. The rest are all a legal smokescreen the legal profession fabricates for profit. If you don't hear Dump your Wife and see Divorce Corp. first thing in your divorce your sunk.
She tells it like it is but with a winning spirit.
Every Pastor should hear this book.
"GUYS IF YOU SEE THE WRITING ON THE WALL"
I wish I had read this book a 18 months ago I could have saved my a boat load of money , kept the thing I wanted that where mine .
The name says it all Good Man Trapped in a Bad Marriage
"Must Read for Any Guy Contemplating Divorce"
Yes, both unhappily married and those considering marriage. This should be prerequisite reading for ALL men thinking about getting marriage.
There are no other books that I've read to compare to this one. It speaks the truth with candor you can't find anywhere else. Everything, especially marriage, doesn't work out. Too many people would have you work yourself to death trying to save something that's horrible or simply remain miserable. Lee tells you how to get out of a bad situation or simply one that's not for you.
Excellent narration. Rarely do you find an author capable of narrating their own book so well. She makes you smile...even about the ugliness and absurdities that often occur prior to, during, and after divorce.
Audio quality is good but not great. Worth listening to regardless.
"Not just Separate. Dump."
It's a good insight into what to expect in a breakup or Divorce if your partner is Angry, Mean, or Crazy.
The book pretty much assumes that you and the Wife are on really bad terms. It tries to give you info on the tough fight you're in for and how to get out quickly and as smoothly as possible.
"An entertaining listen"
Entertaining, somewhat sarcastic and informative. It gave me some good food for thought. The recording is based on the conversion of a 3 cd set which is a little annoying.
"Very poor quality"
While the content is somewhat interesting, the audiobook is of very poor quality. The recording is not very clear and they use some pretty lame band between sections.
Also, the recording repeats itself around 1:50 into it for about 5-10 minutes.
Lastly, it is very obvious that all someone did was record a three cd set they must sell elsewhere as included in the recording is "This is Disc 2..."
