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.
The honest truth told to you so you don't lose the good friends you have.
cannot compare. too different in genres.
A lot of perfect and good advice. make bookmarks in it for future references!!
bettering yourself is all that can and will come out of this.
MUST READ FOR ALL US BROKENHEARTED WOMEN.
we are NOT ALONE!! we all share similar stories, which helps the coping big time.
Just get it. I listened to it on a 7 hr drive when I should've been crying non-stop and lol'd the whole time. Fuck that guy. He's an idiot, you're a super fox. Why wait 5 years to look back and realize he did you a favor and laugh about how you would've settled for some lousy crumbs? Start laughing now.
one of the most entertaining
yes but I did it in 2 sittings. And I'm halfway through it again a day later on my third sitting :)
This is so helpful, insightful and really funny. They speak truths you know inside and there are so many reader stories included that you truly dont feel alone through this.
It's a good book. Read it if you're fresh out of a breakup or nearly there. Guy or girl (I'm a guy) the advice is the same. And believe me, if you listen and abide by it, it will make the healing process fast and as pain free as it can be.
Chin up, kid.
