Review: MENy Calculations by J. Alfa Mais

Genre: Non-Fiction/Self-Help


“MENy Calculations: Win Divorce & Custody Before You Step Into Court (Vol. 1), savagely arms guys with valuable insight, help and tips for messy divorces and how to strategically win in court. This dynamic book delivers practical divorce help for men through a surprisingly simple and groundbreaking approach in only 80 pages. This book is for all men - not just fathers seeking child custody and works in every unique divorce.

Every day, millions of great men are losing it all, great fathers are losing custody and great dads are being alienated from their kids. A few years ago, divorce knocked me down. But I got up much stronger and wiser - having recorded the lessons I learned.”


J. Alfa Mais describes himself as a “Savagely Curious CUSStodial Father, Blogger and BestSelling Author.” Obviously, he likes uppercase letters. The blog he alludes to can be found here.


To be fair I should point out upfront that I read this out of curiosity, not a need for the book’s advice. I received it to read for potential review and it was short enough that the time commitment wouldn’t be much. I’m lucky that the hassles of divorce, custody decisions, and the like are well behind me, but I have been there and I’ve observed and advised others a time or two as well. I’m not an expert and, to be fair, from the normal standpoint of what would make an expert in this area, neither is the author. But he doesn’t need to be. I’ll explain.

When I first started reading the advice contained in this guide it felt like the advice was pushing the man to be too aggressive and confrontational (and this is definitely aimed at men, not women, in the custody battle equation). But as it went on, it felt like the tone changed to what I’d call the right one, evaluating what is best for the kids involved and how to best approach helping your attorney make the case to the judge for that answer, which is ultimately what everyone concerned should be aiming for. Looking for a fight isn’t the answer. Being ready for a fight if one comes to you or if that’s what is required to get the best results for your kids, is the answer. Ultimately, that’s what this book is aiming to help you determine. If that’s something you need advice about, this book could be helpful.
