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.
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!
Life-Changing, Wake-Up! Experience
My favorite part of this experience was how the writers did not tell me what I WANTED to hear, but just what I NEEDED to hear. When it came to a dysfunctional relationship, there was no sugar coating. The authors write with a lot of love and humor, but at all times…they tell you like it is. I felt like a stranger, who does not know my flaws or qualities, was telling me exactly what happened and why. I got answers to all my questions. But in the end, realized that no matter what the question is, the answer is that this particular relationship ‘is broken and will never be fixed’ , and the answers are irrelevant – unless they serve to make me a smarter woman.I feel empowered and blessed to have gone through this hell and to have found this book. I am ashamed of who I have been and look forward to living the life I have dreamed of all along.
This reading was like taking a pain killer medication but without the side effects. It went right to the pain and created an immunity from not only this dysfunctional relationship, but from future ones.
Yes, because it helps you feel normal for feeling sad.
The personal stories. Some are truly outrageous. Greg B. is also pretty hilarious with some of his phrasing and comments.
Yes, in small pieces.
It's a depressing topic, but you'll probably feel better after hearing other people's wacky and sad stories.
This book really helped me through a tough time. The practical exercises were funny & useful -- there is value in knowing that you aren't the only one who has been driven crazy at a relationship's end.
I can often summon the narrators' voices in a difficult time telling me I'm a "super-fox" and that he's NOT COMING BACK. I'm an educated person, but they can be my break-up buddies until my own self-esteem kicks in.
This book is hilarious and brutally honest, both of which made me feel so much better, so very quickly. From all the ones I've tried, this is the best book on the topic Audible offers thus far.
I thought it was a great the narrator did a great job of delivering the humorous elements of the book and I found myself nodding and "amening" in my car on the way to and from work on several occasions. I would definitely recommend this to someone with deep, lingering, unanswered questions about break-ups, theirs in particular. This book covered so many bases.
