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!
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.
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!!
Downloading this audiobook was like having a wise best friend on your MP3 player. One that knew exactly what to say to get you through the tough times. Thank you Greg and Amira.
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.
This book is marketed to women but almost every word applies equally to men. Breaking up is hard to do if you do it right. This book gets you moving forward and feeling better as quickly as possible without dismissing the need to grieve. I found it especially helpful to listen to at night when my thoughts would otherwise wander to bad and sad places.
I bought the audio the next day after a break up of a 5 year relationship (he dumped me), and it has helped me tremendously in getting through this. It has helped me save a great deal of my dignity and see a positive side to this whole situation. I would definitely recommend it.
One of my tops. It makes me laugh and has REALLY helped me.
I was dumped yesterday morning and I did not know how I would get through holding up at work and so on. This authors books have helped me to get through break-ups with dignity and kindness to myself and others. You can't beat that!
I got dumped by my live-in partner of 2 years on a Monday morning (yesterday morning to be exact) totally out of the blue. Spent the day in shock and just packing as much as I could until I was exhausted. Then spent a night bawling and weeping in bed.
I do payroll at work so I HAD to come in to work. I can't describe how EXCRUCIATING it is to try to hold myself together or think straight.
I am very lucky to have the kind words of my friends who emailed me this morning.
These emails brought me to crying fits again. I'm working and going to the bathroom to cry about every 30 minutes. Even with the kind words my thank you's and "smile" were forced and faked.
In the first 5 minutes of this recording I laughed FOR REAL twice. It felt really good to be brought out of my devestating emotional tornado even for just those two laughs.
