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.

    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.

    "So helpful, I've read it 3 times!!!"
    What did you love best about It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken?

    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.

    "Life Changer"
    If you could sum up It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken in three words, what would they be?

    Life-Changing, Wake-Up! Experience


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


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

    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.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    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.


    Was It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken worth the listening time?

    Yes, in small pieces.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a depressing topic, but you'll probably feel better after hearing other people's wacky and sad stories.

    Story
    "I listened to this over & over & over"
    What made the experience of listening to It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What did you learn from It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken that you would use in your daily life?

    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.

    Would you consider the audio edition of It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken to be better than the print version?

    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.

    "Great Book!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.
