Y'all, I just had a breakup. The BAD kind. After ten years of friendship and two years of "being together," my dude (whom I'd been in love with basically forever) dumped me... via drunk text message. Of course this single act confirmed my worst suspicions about his character, but that's neither here nor there. I spent several days wailing on my parents' couch and then several days crying on the phone to my best friends, then I decided to become a breakup superhero and recover by listening to self-help audiobooks on the elliptical. This is the first book I tried, and it was perfect. It's not particularly "deep" and it's not somber, and there's no hokey spirituality (which I abhor). There are breakup stories that will make you feel like you're really doing awesome (even if you're chain-smoking and crying on your front porch in front of your whole nosy neighborhood, as I was). I just generally feel way better now, and this book (plus the cardio) is why. I think you should go ahead and get it.
Ladies, we all know that we can't go wrong when we purchase this book.
But what I was disappointed is that the narrator is not Greg but another guy!!!! His tone seems okay but not as real as Greg though.
The honest truth told to you so you don't lose the good friends you have.
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.
Seriously, so true & hits home in the most humorous way.
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?
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!
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.
Love this book. A definite yes. Yes. YES!
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.
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.
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.
AMAZON AUDIBLE VETERAN
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!
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.
