"Sexton's narration debut is impressive. He reads smoothly, with animated conviction and passion for his subject that shine through."-AudioFile Magazine This program is read by the author In this pertinent audiobook, hard-hitting divorce lawyer James Sexton shares his insights and wisdom from the frontlines of divorce to keep you out of his office and improve on your relationship If You're In My Office, It's Already Too Late. James Sexton knows this. After dealing with over 1000 clients whose marriages have dissolved over everything from an ill-advised threesome with the nanny to the uneven division of carpool duties, he also knows all of the what-not-to-dos for couples who want to build-and consistently work to preserve-a lasting, fulfilling relationship. Described by former clients as a "courtroom gunslinger" and "the sociopath you want on your side," Sexton tells the unvarnished truth about relationships, diving straight into the most common marital problems. These usually derive from dishonest-or nonexistent-communication. Even when the alleged reason for separation is one spouse's new "personal trainer," there's usually a communication problem that predates the fitness kick. Symptom and root cause get confused all the time. Sexton has spent his career working with spouses-to-be-no-longer. Reverse-engineering a relationship can help to identify and fix what does not work. Ever feel like you're holding back criticism of your spouse because you just can't have that fight right now? Sexton will tell you to "Hit Send Now." Maybe you aren't as adventurous as you used to be, or need some you-time, but for some reason, it seems weird or exhausting to change up the routine now. Sexton knows where that mentality leads and offers viable alternative paths to take. Though he deals constantly with the heartbreak of others, he still believes in romance and the transformative power of love. This audiobook is his opportunity to use what he has learned to help couples that aren't so far gone get back on track.

Professional reviews

"Drawing on an extensive background in divorce law, Sexton highlights for those still married how NOT to mess up their marriages and end up in his office. Sexton delivers stories, tips, and advice with lots of energy--and some frustration that well-meaning people can make such dumb mistakes. Listening is absorbing, slightly horrifying, and memorable: His images--comparing divorce to a knife fight in a closet--with the kids in there with you--are sobering. Sexton's narration debut is impressive. He reads smoothly, with animated conviction and passion for his subject that shine through. His liberal use of profanity is startling in some places--though not exactly gratuitous, as he sounds genuinely irritated when dropping f-bombs--but this may put off some listeners.
