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.

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

What other book might you compare How to Dump Your Wife to and why?

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.

What about Lee Covington’s performance did you like?

She tells it like it is but with a winning spirit.

Any additional comments?

Every Pastor should hear this book.
