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.

    "It's helping a lot!!"

    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.

    Story
    "This was just what I needed."

    Y'all, I just had a breakup. The BAD kind. After ten years of friendship and two years of "being together," my dude (whom I'd been in love with basically forever) dumped me... via drunk text message. Of course this single act confirmed my worst suspicions about his character, but that's neither here nor there. I spent several days wailing on my parents' couch and then several days crying on the phone to my best friends, then I decided to become a breakup superhero and recover by listening to self-help audiobooks on the elliptical. This is the first book I tried, and it was perfect. It's not particularly "deep" and it's not somber, and there's no hokey spirituality (which I abhor). There are breakup stories that will make you feel like you're really doing awesome (even if you're chain-smoking and crying on your front porch in front of your whole nosy neighborhood, as I was). I just generally feel way better now, and this book (plus the cardio) is why. I think you should go ahead and get it.

    "Everything's perfect! But...."

    Ladies, we all know that we can't go wrong when we purchase this book.
    But what I was disappointed is that the narrator is not Greg but another guy!!!! His tone seems okay but not as real as Greg though.

    This is a fantastic book full of great advice and some laughs at a time when it's most needed. I have listened to it again and again to help me gain valuable perspective while I went through my own painful breakup. The lighthearted humor made it easy to turn to when I felt like contacting or even just thinking about my ex. HIGHLY recommend to anyone going through a break up or just thinking about breaking up.

    "Laughing through (Emotional) Open Heart Surgery!"
    What did you love best about It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken?

    Seriously, so true & hits home in the most humorous way.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken?

    When he doesn't contact you, that should tell you that the relationship is over for him and he doesn't want to be in touch with you. No brainer right? But you can totally make up so many "Stories" to explain reasons why...Maybe he got eaten by a lion?


    Have you listened to any of various’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I read He's just not that into you...This performance was Perfect. I'm a little particular about the way voices sound (e.g does it sound canned/read from a script or natural? Is the pace too fast or "I am going to shoot myself" slow, is the pitch or tone too high/low?) They sounded like you were hanging out with friends laughing & talking about relationships which I loved!


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

    A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down...no wait, that's already been done. How about Tough Love that's easy to swallow....Hmmm, maybe not; they might think it's porn or a How to.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this book. A definite yes. Yes. YES!

    "A great companion book for one of those days"
    Where does It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is definitely one of my favorites -- finding good narrators can be tricky in the audiobook world, but Greg and Amira are fantastic. This audiobook is upbeat, engaging and sympathetic. You really feel like you're listening to friends.


    What does various bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The content of the book itself is nothing new. But the presentation of the audiobook is what made this book such a standout. Once again, the narration was on point and the palpable excitement of the authors made this book very, very easy to listen to.

    "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.
