Best Breakup Book!

I can’t say enough! My ex asked for a divorce and we got one and then a year later I gave in and tried at things again. I wish that I had read this book before trying - because it gives you tools, advice and most important it answers questions and gives you confidence. I can now say no - when he attempts to contact me without feeling like I am letting him down! In the end my happiness and sanity is what’s important and this book taught me to refocus my pain back on myself. Take the time and do things that will better myself. Truly thankful to the author for writing word for word what I needed to hear. I will read this book again and again!

The beauty of rising above a break up

I appreciate so much that this book addresses how we negatively weigh ourselves down through break ups but that we can pick ourselves up and move on to bigger better things without damaging our relationships with ourselves. Wherever you’re at in the grieving process there are several tremendously helpful hints to help you get over your break-up in healthy ways and allowing yourself to take the time to heal from the pain and feeling of loss that have occurred in your own way.

I have already recommended this book to a few friends who are going through hard times with break ups and probably will reference it again when needed.

Soothed my soul

Why does breakup have to be so hard??? This book was awesome. It really helped me to redevelop my thinking regarding my thinking and understanding of my break up. I'm doing my healing book by book although this book was great. I think that I may need to read one more.

#1 book I've read on breaking up!

I could have saved myself a fortune in counseling costs had I read this book first! It is a must read, in my opinion. I will certainly recommend it to anyone going through a breakup. I only wish I had read it sooner!!

Got over it.

I was really really struggling with my breakup (lonely, angry, confused, embarassed etc etc). This book was the first step in me REALLY getting over it. At one stage I didn't think it was possible, but I really am over it now and I credit this book with doing that for me.

Very Helpful Book!

I am going through a separation from my husband after 10 years of marriage. The book described perfectly some feelings and emotions that I have been through and provides great advice for moving on.
I found it great support in hard times like this and would highly recommend it.
It might not be for everyone's situation but definitely there is something in there for everyone that would help out. Thank you!

Essential

My honest opinion is, this should be required reading or listening for anyone going through a breakup.

Honestly, it explains it so well and lays out methods to follow. Day by day things can get better, despite how it feels at the time.

Guide to getting over a breakup

A huge thank you to the author of this book for helping me get through such a horrible period of my life. My breakup was...well...horrible, but somehow this book gave me the strength to get through it. It told me, in simple steps, exactly what to do. NOBODY is more surprised than me that the advice actually works!

Got over breakup with this book

I genuinely thought that NOTHING could help me deal with the loss and all the mixed up feelings during my breakup.
I was wrong - this book did.

It didnt solve everything but it gave me a solid path to follow.

A very very good guide to getting over a breakup.
