Warren Adler comments, “I’ve received countless comments, letters, and emails from people who have read the book or seen the movie, many expressing their thanks for changing their lives in some way. Some confessed that they abandoned any idea of fighting over property in the course of their divorces. Best of all, some have told me that it caused reconciliation with their partners.”
