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.

    "Actually a good book for guys too"

    I'm not sure why they target girls for this book, because half of it is a guy telling how he got over his own breakups. This book is equally good for guys. I just got out of a 3 year relationship and even though I was the one that ended it I was still feeling pretty down (this is called dumpers remorse in the book). This audio actually made me feel quite a bit better about ending things. I think the other reviewer is mistaken, and am pretty sure this version of the book is in fact read by the authors.

    "Good advice"

    Not earth shattering new info, but logical and well presented. Very helpful reminders on how to stop thinking and tormenting yourself about "you know who". Basically - It's not worth keeping a jerk who can be happy being apart from you, while you suffer for them. That's not how genuine love works. THEY DON'T LOVE YOU, or perhaps never did. Real love is an unselfish emotion. It wants their partner to be happy, because this is what makes THEM happy. Real love does not leave you alone with the flu.

    "It helps"

    It is nice to listen to book. It can bring everyone back to reality and that is what you need when you just broke up. Otherwise just try and you will see it for yourself.
