Publisher's Summary

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. It's over for a reason, and deep down inside you probably know what that reason is. It's called a breakup because it's broken, and starting today, you're not the kind of woman who settles for broken, or hangs on to damaged goods, be it a radio, a pair of shoes, or a relationship. It's time to get rid of all the broken stuff you've been lugging around for days, months, and maybe even years, and make the bold decision to start looking for stuff that works! Because the longer you stay stuck in a dead-end relationship, the less time you get on this planet to experience a great one. So download this book, and let's dive in, our goal is to help you turn your breakup into the event that changes your life for the better in ways you never dreamed possible. It's not an end, it's a beginning! After all, you are a Superfox.

    "Great advice even for guys"

    Although it was written for females and it's slightly odd to listen to as a guy, it was generic enough that I got alot of healing from it. I was reminded of the real truth behind the breakup, and the authors kept it interesting the entire time. They had lots of question and answer type of chapters and pretty much covered everything I was going through. It's also read by male and female voices so it changes up often.

    "Very Helpful"

    I really like the angle of the book that has comedy mixed in with such a sad and serious topic. I really needed this book in a time in my life where everything was falling apart. thank you to the author if you're reading this, you did help me get thru it.

    "For Guys Too!!!"

    This book is marketed to women but almost every word applies equally to men. Breaking up is hard to do if you do it right. This book gets you moving forward and feeling better as quickly as possible without dismissing the need to grieve. I found it especially helpful to listen to at night when my thoughts would otherwise wander to bad and sad places.

    "This is a being dumped First Aid Kit!"
    Where does It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of my tops. It makes me laugh and has REALLY helped me.
    I was dumped yesterday morning and I did not know how I would get through holding up at work and so on. This authors books have helped me to get through break-ups with dignity and kindness to myself and others. You can't beat that!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I got dumped by my live-in partner of 2 years on a Monday morning (yesterday morning to be exact) totally out of the blue. Spent the day in shock and just packing as much as I could until I was exhausted. Then spent a night bawling and weeping in bed.
    I do payroll at work so I HAD to come in to work. I can't describe how EXCRUCIATING it is to try to hold myself together or think straight.
    I am very lucky to have the kind words of my friends who emailed me this morning.
    These emails brought me to crying fits again. I'm working and going to the bathroom to cry about every 30 minutes. Even with the kind words my thank you's and "smile" were forced and faked.
    In the first 5 minutes of this recording I laughed FOR REAL twice. It felt really good to be brought out of my devestating emotional tornado even for just those two laughs.

    "It's helping a lot!!"

    I bought the audio the next day after a break up of a 5 year relationship (he dumped me), and it has helped me tremendously in getting through this. It has helped me save a great deal of my dignity and see a positive side to this whole situation. I would definitely recommend it.

    "This was just what I needed."

    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.

    "Everything's perfect! But...."

    Ladies, we all know that we can't go wrong when we purchase this book.
    But what I was disappointed is that the narrator is not Greg but another guy!!!! His tone seems okay but not as real as Greg though.
