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.

    "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!

    "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.

    "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.

    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.

    "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.

    "A must have, for EVERYONE"
    Where does It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The best I have listened to so far!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved it because they keep a sense of humor, allowing us to laugh at our irrational behavior while learning alternative, effective, strategies for getting through a break up. Even if you are in a loving relationship that IS working, this book will give you skills you can use to help others. We all know someone who is suffering the devastation of the end of a relationship with a loved one.


    Which character – as performed by various – was your favorite?

    Both readers were fabulous, but Greg was the definite leader.


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

    I learned that I can keep going. That it is normal to have the feelings, and not to fight them. I learned to grieve without settling for anything that would compromise my dignity. I learned that we do go on, life continues, and if we engage in self destructive behaviors it does not make our loved one come running back but it does keep us in a state of pain for a longer period of time.


    Any additional comments?

    Get this book! If you are in a break up, Get this book immediately. Also, I listened it to it twice on the way to work, just to get through the day on a positive note and not send that
