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.

    "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.

    "One of the best 12 steps out there!"

    It's a good book. Read it if you're fresh out of a breakup or nearly there. Guy or girl (I'm a guy) the advice is the same. And believe me, if you listen and abide by it, it will make the healing process fast and as pain free as it can be.

    Chin up, kid.

    "May have just saved my last shed of dignity!"

    This book, while many times I felt like crying, had me laughing and showed me not only what I am feeling is totally normal, it showed me exactly what I didn't want to become to my ex. I am so thankful I listened to it. It truly did help me to get started on getting over and moving on to my fabulous new life. Whatever that may be or look like.

    "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.
