Life-Changing, Wake-Up! Experience
My favorite part of this experience was how the writers did not tell me what I WANTED to hear, but just what I NEEDED to hear. When it came to a dysfunctional relationship, there was no sugar coating. The authors write with a lot of love and humor, but at all times…they tell you like it is. I felt like a stranger, who does not know my flaws or qualities, was telling me exactly what happened and why. I got answers to all my questions. But in the end, realized that no matter what the question is, the answer is that this particular relationship ‘is broken and will never be fixed’ , and the answers are irrelevant – unless they serve to make me a smarter woman.I feel empowered and blessed to have gone through this hell and to have found this book. I am ashamed of who I have been and look forward to living the life I have dreamed of all along.
This reading was like taking a pain killer medication but without the side effects. It went right to the pain and created an immunity from not only this dysfunctional relationship, but from future ones.
Yes, because it helps you feel normal for feeling sad.
The personal stories. Some are truly outrageous. Greg B. is also pretty hilarious with some of his phrasing and comments.
Yes, in small pieces.
It's a depressing topic, but you'll probably feel better after hearing other people's wacky and sad stories.
This book really helped me through a tough time. The practical exercises were funny & useful -- there is value in knowing that you aren't the only one who has been driven crazy at a relationship's end.
I can often summon the narrators' voices in a difficult time telling me I'm a "super-fox" and that he's NOT COMING BACK. I'm an educated person, but they can be my break-up buddies until my own self-esteem kicks in.
This book is hilarious and brutally honest, both of which made me feel so much better, so very quickly. From all the ones I've tried, this is the best book on the topic Audible offers thus far.
I thought it was a great the narrator did a great job of delivering the humorous elements of the book and I found myself nodding and "amening" in my car on the way to and from work on several occasions. I would definitely recommend this to someone with deep, lingering, unanswered questions about break-ups, theirs in particular. This book covered so many bases.
The best I have listened to so far!
I loved it because they keep a sense of humor, allowing us to laugh at our irrational behavior while learning alternative, effective, strategies for getting through a break up. Even if you are in a loving relationship that IS working, this book will give you skills you can use to help others. We all know someone who is suffering the devastation of the end of a relationship with a loved one.
Both readers were fabulous, but Greg was the definite leader.
I learned that I can keep going. That it is normal to have the feelings, and not to fight them. I learned to grieve without settling for anything that would compromise my dignity. I learned that we do go on, life continues, and if we engage in self destructive behaviors it does not make our loved one come running back but it does keep us in a state of pain for a longer period of time.
Get this book! If you are in a break up, Get this book immediately. Also, I listened it to it twice on the way to work, just to get through the day on a positive note and not send that
I have read 20 books in one summer. I like reading YA books
I really iked this book, its a good little buddy to have when you just broken up with someone or just got dumped (not that either of those have happened to me yet), Even though i found this usful because i have been rejected and its sometimes hard to let go of something You thought was special or real, this book give you the truth while providing some laughter and cooking. It also has a part at the end for guys. But I would definatly suggest this book to anyone who is going through or just got broken up with.
For those feeling the pain of a break up, this is an essential buy. It succeeds in making you laugh (you need that right now), feeling superior (I'm upset, but at least I'm not acting like THAT), and giving you the hard truth in a loving way (It's called a break up because it's broken. Move on.).
Hearing how painful the authors' break-ups were. You'll feel better, because at least you're not that bad, right?
The alternating male/female voices. While geared to some degree for women (smart girl's guide) it transcends gender. Translation: Guys, don't be afraid of buying it. It doesn't trash men.
No, because it was so much fun, I didn't want it to end too soon. I kept being glad there were hours left.
The introduction drew me in immediately. I was walking along the beach listening to this, with many other contemplating people and I started busting up to the point I couldn't control it. A woman walking alone and laughing her head off isn't something I ever thought I'd be but it was liberating! I had tears running down my face - not from grief but laughing. Our emotions can sure make us look ridiculous! hahaha. Listen to this one, it's worth it.
