Publisher's Summary

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:

The doting, clingy sweetheart who wants to stay married at all costs
The shrill, abusive, spiteful, and totally draining harpy
The self-absorbed career woman with powerful friends and her own agenda

PLEASE NOTE: This book is for entertainment purposes only and is by no means a substitute for legal advice. For God's sake, do not act in reliance on the opinions of the author, who is a humorist, not a lawyer.


What the Critics Say

"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)

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..."

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!
