I hate reading - it hurts my eyes. Audible is great for me!
I wish this book were more geared for people in their 30s and up - when the loss is more severe and painful. When I was in my 20s, break-ups were awful - but now that I'm older, they're agonizing, and a lot more serious.
Maybe for someone in their 20s.
The male narrator was kind of annoying.
Sorry - I was disappointed. He's Just Not That Into You was genius work. This book was still okay - it just was way too 'cutesy' than how awful I am feeling right now. This book makes me feel old, and more abandoned than ever because I'm not in my 20s where it was easier to bounce back.
Y'all, I just had a breakup. The BAD kind. After ten years of friendship and two years of "being together," my dude (whom I'd been in love with basically forever) dumped me... via drunk text message. Of course this single act confirmed my worst suspicions about his character, but that's neither here nor there. I spent several days wailing on my parents' couch and then several days crying on the phone to my best friends, then I decided to become a breakup superhero and recover by listening to self-help audiobooks on the elliptical. This is the first book I tried, and it was perfect. It's not particularly "deep" and it's not somber, and there's no hokey spirituality (which I abhor). There are breakup stories that will make you feel like you're really doing awesome (even if you're chain-smoking and crying on your front porch in front of your whole nosy neighborhood, as I was). I just generally feel way better now, and this book (plus the cardio) is why. I think you should go ahead and get it.
This is a fantastic book full of great advice and some laughs at a time when it's most needed. I have listened to it again and again to help me gain valuable perspective while I went through my own painful breakup. The lighthearted humor made it easy to turn to when I felt like contacting or even just thinking about my ex. HIGHLY recommend to anyone going through a break up or just thinking about breaking up.
As always, best-selling author/comedian, Greg Behrendt & his super-smart wife, (Amira knows an emotionally intelligent/healthy hottie when she sees one!), deliver a fun read with practical advice on using tough experiences to become a happier, healthier person. I only wish they'd narrated this one themselves, like they did their other books-the narrators of this one, didn't quite do it justice; bring back Greg & Amira, please!
It is definitely one of my favorites -- finding good narrators can be tricky in the audiobook world, but Greg and Amira are fantastic. This audiobook is upbeat, engaging and sympathetic. You really feel like you're listening to friends.
The content of the book itself is nothing new. But the presentation of the audiobook is what made this book such a standout. Once again, the narration was on point and the palpable excitement of the authors made this book very, very easy to listen to.
I am going through a bad break up right now and this book definitely helped me realize that it isn't the end of the world. I listened to the authors reading to me every morning while I prepared myself mentally for work or school and I think this made me stronger. I still made a lot of the mistakes they point out in this book and even while listening to it I would contact my ex and make a fool out of myself, but the authors definitely helped make me feel better and stop punishing myself. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the excessive use of "superfox" made me cringe a little lol...
Soothing ...yet funny advice that aids in easing the pain of a breakup. It definitely gives value.
it benefits to listen from time to time to understand and appreciate what a gift a good relationship is.
The author's voice drove me crazy. I think it would have been better if Amiira had read the entire book, with little snip its from Greg. It might not be so bad if you were to read it your self. Overall, it's a good book for someone right after their break up. If you wait a little while you might feel past some of this stuff.
Seriously, so true & hits home in the most humorous way.
When he doesn't contact you, that should tell you that the relationship is over for him and he doesn't want to be in touch with you. No brainer right? But you can totally make up so many "Stories" to explain reasons why...Maybe he got eaten by a lion?
I read He's just not that into you...This performance was Perfect. I'm a little particular about the way voices sound (e.g does it sound canned/read from a script or natural? Is the pace too fast or "I am going to shoot myself" slow, is the pitch or tone too high/low?) They sounded like you were hanging out with friends laughing & talking about relationships which I loved!
A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down...no wait, that's already been done. How about Tough Love that's easy to swallow....Hmmm, maybe not; they might think it's porn or a How to.
Love this book. A definite yes. Yes. YES!
