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.
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.
This book, while many times I felt like crying, had me laughing and showed me not only what I am feeling is totally normal, it showed me exactly what I didn't want to become to my ex. I am so thankful I listened to it. It truly did help me to get started on getting over and moving on to my fabulous new life. Whatever that may be or look like.
I am totally into building myself up spiritually, emotionally and relationship wise, so I like to listen to lots of books! :)
This book is HILARIOUS and gives you the low down stankn truth about your BREAK UP. IT'S CALLED A BREAK UP... BECAUSE IT'S BROKEN! You will feel much better after you listen to this and you will regain your STRENGTH AND POWER!
Very practical and real world advice. I found myself nodding my head in agreement quite a few times. The authors were both great. There was a bit of humor throughout the book, which I found kind of lightened the mood of the book at the appropriate times. I would highly recommend this book to anyone going through a breakup. I will probably go through it again before my poor little heart heals completely.
This book was great and such an EXCELLENT listen! I would love to hear more from these authors! You will feel like they know you personally and your break up/relationship situation. This audiobook made me feel like I am not alone - we all feel the same stuff! Worth a hundred credits!
