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.

    "Can't believe this is the same author..."

    It's amazing to me that this book was written by the same author as "He's Just Not That Into You." While I really enjoyed the first book, I think this book was full of fluff and very little substance. Maybe Liz was the mastermind behind the original message. I just wasn't into this one.

    "Just What I Needed!"

    Downloading this audiobook was like having a wise best friend on your MP3 player. One that knew exactly what to say to get you through the tough times. Thank you Greg and Amira.

    "Great Book"

    This book was great! It gives a good realistic spin on break ups. It even has a way of making you laugh at yourself!

    "Ugh! If you are 10 years old you may like it!"
    Any additional comments?

    Not for adults! This is one of the most patronising books I have ever heard / read. It may be really useful if you are a child, but for anyone beyond 10 years old, this is NOT the book for you! What a waste of money and time.

    "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.

    Story
    "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.

    "Laughing through (Emotional) Open Heart Surgery!"
    What did you love best about It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken?

    Seriously, so true & hits home in the most humorous way.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken?

    When he doesn't contact you, that should tell you that the relationship is over for him and he doesn't want to be in touch with you. No brainer right? But you can totally make up so many "Stories" to explain reasons why...Maybe he got eaten by a lion?


    Have you listened to any of various’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I read He's just not that into you...This performance was Perfect. I'm a little particular about the way voices sound (e.g does it sound canned/read from a script or natural? Is the pace too fast or "I am going to shoot myself" slow, is the pitch or tone too high/low?) They sounded like you were hanging out with friends laughing & talking about relationships which I loved!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down...no wait, that's already been done. How about Tough Love that's easy to swallow....Hmmm, maybe not; they might think it's porn or a How to.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this book. A definite yes. Yes. YES!
