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.

    "Okay"
    Would you listen to It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken again? Why?

    I wish this book were more geared for people in their 30s and up - when the loss is more severe and painful. When I was in my 20s, break-ups were awful - but now that I'm older, they're agonizing, and a lot more serious.


    Would you recommend It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken to your friends? Why or why not?

    Maybe for someone in their 20s.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The male narrator was kind of annoying.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    No idea.


    Any additional comments?

    Sorry - I was disappointed. He's Just Not That Into You was genius work. This book was still okay - it just was way too 'cutesy' than how awful I am feeling right now. This book makes me feel old, and more abandoned than ever because I'm not in my 20s where it was easier to bounce back.

    "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.

    "Made the First Few Days Bearable"

    I've had this book for a few years now, since I was considering breaking up with my last ex. I found it okay back then, but this time, after being dumped by my latest boyfriend I found it to be my best companion for the first few days. Listen at your worst moments and it's likely to make you feel more at ease and help you realize/confirm that you're better off without that person in your life. I even listened at night when I had a hard time sleeping. I definitely recommend this to those hurting after a breakup.

    "Good for the heart"

    If you can overlook the corny jokes this is a good listen for those who are heartbroken or in the process of breaking up. They give a wide range of examples and one of them is bound to fit your life. I liked it and found it had some valid points.

    "Review from a man..."

    I thought that my girlfriend was the one... She even told me so.. So why did she break up with me a week later? Although the relationship was great for me, something was missing for her.. Look at the name of the book, it's the truth like it or not..

    I truthfully have never typed a review. After purchasing and listening to this book I felt the need to do so because of the heartache I was experiencing from my recent breakup and the help this book provided. First off, although written for women, the basic premise and advice applies to men as well. I listened to this book last week in two days and as of today, I have finished it a second time. The stories and letters within the book are funny. The narrators, who also wrote the book share their sometimes hilarious embarrassing personal stories. I don't want to be long winded here, but if you, like me are having a hard time coming to terms with a breakup this is the book for you. Whether a short term relationship or long term marriage this covers it all. Honestly, I'm listening through a third time.

    "Helpful, but annoying"

    This is helpful during the desperate time after a breakup, but the male narrator is annoying af. I had to skip several of his parts because he was infuriatingly corny.

    "Can't believe this is the same author..."

    It's amazing to me that this book was written by the same author as "He's Just Not That Into You." While I really enjoyed the first book, I think this book was full of fluff and very little substance. Maybe Liz was the mastermind behind the original message. I just wasn't into this one.

    "Awesome!!"

    I can not even begin to tell you how this book has helped me!! Such truth, and wisdom, mixed with humor.
    This book helped me out so much, as it told me the truth over and over again. I put this on head phones at night, so I wouldn't have to think about he ex.
    Love it, would recommend it to anyone!!

    "I Was Devastated, Then This Audio Came Along"

    I loved it...highly recommend it. Witty, fun and never ceases to remind you that you are not alone. Interestingly narrated by both a male and a female the two perspectives and sets of experiences give additional depth and understanding to what is primarily a chick's book. Absolutely would recommend it...especially as a gift for ANY woman you know whether going thru her FIRST breakup or her FIFTIETH. Enjoy!

    "Ugh! If you are 10 years old you may like it!"
    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.
