Synopsis: The national bestseller Second Chances has radically transformed the ways we think about divorce, and its message continues to gain greater resonance as more research on the long-term effects of divorce is completed. Based on the renowned psychologist Judith S. Wallerstein's landmark study of sixty families, this insightful report on the first decade after a breakup reveals the emotional, economic, and psychological impact of divorce -- on adults and especially on children. An instructive, reassuring, and sensitive account, Second Chances should be "required -- and eminently rewarding -- reading for anyone interested in the contemporary family" (Nancy Chodorow, Ph.D.).

About the Author: Sandra Blakeslee is a science writer based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. She has spent nearly all of her career writing for the New York Times, both as a staff writer and on contract. She also writes books. For the past fifteen years, she has specialized in the brain sciences. She also particularly likes stories about the environment, earth sciences and all things biological. As the recipient of a Templeton Journalism Fellowship, she spent several weeks in the summer of 2007 at Cambridge University in England, discussing science and religion. For pleasure, she is a cyclist, hiker, skiier and (if a knee injury heals up) runner. Recent adventures have taken her to Nepal (hiking to Annapurna Base Camp in a snowstorm), to Burma (moutain bike ride across the north), down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon (the paddle boat is most fun) and, in August 2008, trekking in the unbelievably steep Japan Alps. Sandra grew up in Port Washington, New York, attended Northwestern University for two years and transferred to the University of California at Berkeley where she graduated in 1965 with a major in poltical science. She went into the Peace Corps in 1965, to Sarawak, Borneo, where she lived upriver and taught elementary school. Upon returning in 1967, she was hired at the United Nations bureau of the New York Times as a clerk.. and the rest is history. She has two adult children, Matt Blakeslee (a fourth generation science writer) and Abi Blakeslee Kelleher (a clinical psychologist). In Santa Fe, Sandra lives with my life partner, Carl Moore, a consultant who helps communities and non profits solve difficult problems.
