Bill Ferguson is helping me save my marriage

It's too early to tell, but the approach recommended here is already having an enormously positive effect on my relationship with my spouse. In contrast to the other review, I have found this audiobook to be helpful and multi-faceted, going to the root of the emotional background that is likely causing the two partners in estrangement to contemplate a split. I know that whether or not we decide to go our separate ways, my relationship with my wife will be significantly repaired, and that at least will save us a costly and adversarial divorce. I will update this review once the final result is in. In the meantime, if you are looking for help for your troubled marriage, I suggest you place this audiobook near the top of your list.

jumbled presentation, didn't feel relevant

In spite of the fact my husband and I are getting divorced, and we both very much want to stay close friends (and so far are), this book didn't feel relevant at times to me.

There were some good insights, but there were also parts I found annoying.

I wish there had been a professional narrator.

I also wish the format had been edited. It appeared to have been a series before, that was combined into one recording. Therefore, it "sells" the next section, and often repeats things that were already said. In spite of the repetition, the order didn't make sense. At one point I thought I had skipped backwards (but hadn't).

I couldn't finish listening to this.

Saved My Spirit

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would and have recommended this book to a friend. I recommended it because it clearly spoke to what was required at the beginning of a painful separation. The thought of being friends with someone you were separating from was an unheard of concept. Very valuable in creating a mental shift in how to view separation. Forcing you to see that resistance to change is what causes upset and not the actual change happening.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Divorce as Friends...And Maybe Save Your Marriage?

A few key points were:
Trust that you will be okay,
Accept your circumstances,
Stop The Conflict,
Stop Fearing The Loss,
Feel The Hurt,
Heal Your Hurt

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The exercise on listing the reasons for your hurt, working through those issues and working constructively towards ending the cycle of conflict and restoring the love as individuals. You have everything you need to heal your relationship or part as friends.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

"The Ex Friends"

Any additional comments?

I have listened to this book several times. 3 years post separation, my ex and I are good friends and our kids being happily co-parented. This book went a long way towards giving me the tools necessary to change the conflict dynamics and moving in a more positive direction. Absolutely recommended.
