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.

    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.

    "You should get this book"

    Seriously, if you looked this up after a breakup, you need it. It has really made all the difference for me. I listen to it when I have trouble sleeping or while I'm in my car. I cannot recommend this enough.

    "They did it again!"

    As always, best-selling author/comedian, Greg Behrendt & his super-smart wife, (Amira knows an emotionally intelligent/healthy hottie when she sees one!), deliver a fun read with practical advice on using tough experiences to become a happier, healthier person. I only wish they'd narrated this one themselves, like they did their other books-the narrators of this one, didn't quite do it justice; bring back Greg & Amira, please!

    "A great companion book for one of those days"
    Where does It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is definitely one of my favorites -- finding good narrators can be tricky in the audiobook world, but Greg and Amira are fantastic. This audiobook is upbeat, engaging and sympathetic. You really feel like you're listening to friends.


    What does various bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The content of the book itself is nothing new. But the presentation of the audiobook is what made this book such a standout. Once again, the narration was on point and the palpable excitement of the authors made this book very, very easy to listen to.

    "really helped me a lot"
    Any additional comments?

    I am going through a bad break up right now and this book definitely helped me realize that it isn't the end of the world. I listened to the authors reading to me every morning while I prepared myself mentally for work or school and I think this made me stronger. I still made a lot of the mistakes they point out in this book and even while listening to it I would contact my ex and make a fool out of myself, but the authors definitely helped make me feel better and stop punishing myself. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the excessive use of "superfox" made me cringe a little lol...

    "Yes"

    Just get it. I listened to it on a 7 hr drive when I should've been crying non-stop and lol'd the whole time. Fuck that guy. He's an idiot, you're a super fox. Why wait 5 years to look back and realize he did you a favor and laugh about how you would've settled for some lousy crumbs? Start laughing now.

    Where does It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    one of the most entertaining


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes but I did it in 2 sittings. And I'm halfway through it again a day later on my third sitting :)

    This is so helpful, insightful and really funny. They speak truths you know inside and there are so many reader stories included that you truly dont feel alone through this.
