Draft book on divorce strategy

I just stumbled across an essay on How Fathers Can Win Child Custody:
So you have a child with a soon-to-be ex-girlfriend or ex-wife, and you are wondering what is going to happen to your children. The first thing you need to be aware of is this: The laws and family court system are not set up fairly towards fathers. The laws are set up to award custody to the parent who has had the most involvement so far raising the child, which means the parent who has worked the least - this is virtually always the mother. ...

If you believe that you are the better parent, you need to read this guide and find out everything you need to know in order to have the best chance at obtaining primary custody.
The author says that he is writing a book.

The same site has another article saying:
I’ve never heard of a Public Broadcasting Service documentary being slammed by two ombudsmen in the space of one week. But that’s exactly what happened to PBS’ ill-fated program, Breaking the Silence. ...

Turns out a rogue outfit called the Mother’s Research and Reference Center was in cahoots with PBS insiders and got advance copies of the program.

Then the MRRC organized demonstrations and private screenings of the documentary for state legislators, judges, and local activists. The idea was to convince them to pass laws to make it almost impossible for dads to get even shared custody of their kids after divorce.
So PBS was deliberately lending its credibility for this propaganda purpose.

The following quote, almost exactly desribes my experience with Arianna Sarris, one of the custody evaluation social worker's in Santa Cruz, CA:

"When you file for a change of custody, the court will probably order a custody evaluation. These are assessments by a social worker that usually end up favoring the mother. The type of people that are attracted to this type of job are low-income women with a chip on their shoulders; they are not going to be predisposed to making a determination that children should be with their fathers. They will usually behave nicely to your face but beware – what they write in their reports about you and your relationship with your children will probably shock you. They will latch on to small details to justify their preferences to give the children to the mothers."
