Guide Review - Generation Ex - A Book Review
Written in an easy and engaging style, Generation Ex both a quick read and a pleasant experience. Reading it from cover to cover took me a bit less than two hours one evening (97 pages) and I truly enjoyed the time I spent reading. I found myself, as David promised I would, smiling quite a bit. And that was a different reaction than I have had to many other books written for divorced fathers.
David Zamora shares the peaks and valleys of his own personal story, but also makes sure the reader has take-aways for his own situation. Covering subjects like communication, money, health and grandparents, he offers practical advice for the everyday challenges of divorced fathers.
Generation Ex is a breath of fresh air for the genre of fatherhood books that appeal to or are written primarily for divorced dads. It offers hope and healing in a unique way and does in fact offer ideas for bridging the gaps created by a separated family situation. Children, ex-spouses and the divorced dad will all be better off if the counsel of Generation Ex is read and applied consistently.
