Required Reading:
Civil War: A Dad's Guide to Custody
By Joseph E Cordell.


Cordell's book hits harder than a three-hundred-pound linebacker. Level-headed and no-nonsense, Civil War is based on the premise that the modern-day court system continues to operate on the assumption that, in the event of divorce, women are-and always should be-the primary custodial parent; and that, furthermore, men are frequently perceived as liars and abusers who can't be trusted with kids. Consequently, says the author, custody battles aren't the time to lose your head, but rather, to screw them on straight. This isn't pleasure reading-it's a playbook.




Reverse Vasectomy:

Dads who swore off procreation after number three are entitled to change their minds. Here's how the numbers break down:
-Cost: $5,000 to $15,000 (medical insurance generally won't cover the expenses)
-Demand: two men per thousand desire reversals
-Time: reversals can require microsurgery, as opposed to the 20-minute vasectomy procedure
-Success rate: Dr. Sherman J. Silber, reverse vasectomy pioneer and author of the book How Not to Get Pregnant claims 98 percent of his 6,000 reversals have been a success, with an 88 percent pregnancy rate among his patients
-Signs of failure: if a man registers no sperm present after six to 12 months, the reversal is considered a failure.
