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.

    "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...

    "Read the book"

    The author's voice drove me crazy. I think it would have been better if Amiira had read the entire book, with little snip its from Greg. It might not be so bad if you were to read it your self. Overall, it's a good book for someone right after their break up. If you wait a little while you might feel past some of this stuff.

    "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 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.

    "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.
