    It’s over - and it really hurts. But as unbelievable as it may seem when you are in the throes of heartache, you can move past your breakup. Forget about trying to win your ex back. Forget about losing yourself and trying to make this person love you. Forget it! Starting today, this breakup is the best time to change your life for the better, inside and out. Getting Past Your Breakup is a proven road map for overcoming the painful end of any romantic relationship, even divorce.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This book could have been more useful for my own circumstance if it hadn't been so marriage/children-centered. Another turnoff was that the author spent a vast part of the book's beginning telling her personal, very specific story. I felt a bit cheated, as I felt forced to listen to someone's problems. (Sorry that sounds so crude...) The most useful book I've found on Audible on this topic thus far is: "It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken." It was hilarious at times and brutally honest, both of which made me feel so much better, so very quickly. I'd recommend that one any day.

    There's no doubt about it, breakups suck. But in the first few hours or days or weeks that follow, there's one important truth you need to recognize: Some things can't and shouldn't be fixed, especially that loser who dumped you or forced you to dump him.

    Would you consider the audio edition of It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken to be better than the print version?

    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.

  • Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim

    In his newest collection of essays, David Sedaris lifts the corner of ordinary life, revealing the absurdity teeming below its surface. His world is alive with obscure desires and hidden motives, a world where forgiveness is automatic and an argument can be the highest form of love. Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim is another unforgettable collection from one of the wittiest and most original writers at work today.

    FanB14 says: "Read on...Hilarity Ensues"
    "THE BOOK IS BETTER THAN THE AUDIO"
    Overall

    Being a HUGE fan of David Sedaris' writing, I have gotta say that his audio book versions are horrible when not in front of an audience. His writing is witty and hilarious, but when he records his books, his tone is so sad! It's a stark contrast from his live readings on This American Life or in concert where he's so much funnier as he sounds normal than when recording his books in studio. So, unless live, Sedaris' audio book versions don't do his work justice.

    In Reefer Madness, the best-selling author of Fast Food Nation investigates America's black market and its far-reaching influence on our society through three of its mainstays - pot, porn, and illegal immigrants.

    Sarah Vowell travels through the American past and investigates the dusty, bumpy roads of her own life. Her essays confront a wide range of subjects, icons, and historical moments: Ike, Teddy Roosevelt, and Bill Clinton; Canadian Mounties and German Filmmakers; Tom Cruise and Buffy the Vampire Slayer; twins and nerds; the Gettysburg Address, the State of the Union, and George W. Bush's inauguration. The result is an engrossing audiobook, capturing Vowell's memorable wit and her keen social commentary.

    Sarah Vowell for President!

    To a degree both engrossing and alarming, the story of fast food is the story of postwar America. Fast Food Nation is a groundbreaking work of investigation and cultural history that may change the way America thinks about the way it eats.
