I was with my ex partner on and off for 7 years and desperately needed to find a way to make sure the most recent break up was the final one. I have found this book to be profoundly useful for not only getting over my ex once and for all but also helping me to create the life I dream of and deserve.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough for someone who is hurting yet ready to make a better life.
The narration was fine, but best of this listen is the book itself. The most helpful, hopeful and straightforward advice I've ever seen in this genre-the concepts offered me a way to think deeper beyond the emotional whirlwind I was experiencing, and just 'keep it simple' while keeping my own self-respect and learning to be whole again. This was the first and only book I picked up in the days after the sudden end of my long-term love, and it honestly kept me upright through those very difficult days. I still keep it ready to go in my library and reference it often. So grateful for this amazing book.
Don't bother with any fluff (ok, yeah, Greg Behrendt)- which minimizes the devastating effects of a breakup ('you're a stone cold fox! He is stupid'
Now don't you feel better?). Getting Past your Breakup is so far beyond this, offers real direction and brutal honesty but you will believe that you can get past this, and even that it can be 'the best thing that ever happened to you.' Really.
This book has some useful information in it, especially the emphasis on NC (no contact with your ex) and I did find parts of the text helpful. My issue is that the author tends to talk down to the reader: "Do this." "Don't do that." "Grow up." And the narrator really emphasizes this bossy tone. Also, I didn't find the narrator's voice very appealing. She sounded like Mrs. Roper from "Three's Company" (a sit-com from the 70's & 80's).
The real time lessons and how I could relate to the content
The section on social media is so perfect
It make me understand how to get past the break up and move on with my lifte
Depressing. Aren't these kind of books supposed to make you feel better? I, too, recommend 'its called a breakup because its broken' and 'the 30 day heartbreak cure.'
Someone with a young, calm and soothing voice. Someone hipper.
The first 3 chapters.
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.
