Publisher Comments:

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 open up 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 past two in the morning. You're on your third glass of wine. You're wearing his sweater because it still smells like him (and quite frankly, he never really smelled that great, but we'll give it to you). Stamp out that dumb French cigarette and put down that phone. No really, don't make that call. Why? Because you're not that girl, looking for another chance with someone who has proven himself unworthy of your greatness. You're not that girl, sitting alone with a box of tissues when a world full of possibilities waits outside her door. Starting right here, right now, it's time to dry your tears, put down that pintof ice cream, log out of his email, and open this book to chapter one — and start turning your breakup into a break-over.

The co-author of the smash two-million copy bestseller He's Just Not That Into You, Greg Behrendt knows that the one thing harder than realizing he's not that into you is finding the courage to walk away from the relationship. But Greg and his co-author and wife, Amiira, also know that there's a flip side to every breakup: As dark as everything seems right now, this could be the single best thing that's ever happened to you.

It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken is the ultimate survival guide to getting over Mr. Wrong and reclaiming your inner Superfox. From how to put yourself through he-tox, to how to throw yourself a kick-ass pity party, Greg and Amiira share their hilarious and helpful roadmap for getting past the heartache and back into the game.

Review:

"[A] frank, irreverent look at dealing with the fallout of relationships gone wrong....Recommended..." Library Journal

Review:

"The authors take a lighthearted and positive tone throughout their boisterous guide..." Booklist

Review:

"I've never found a book so spot-on about relationships as It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken." Orlando Sentinel

Synopsis:

The author of the #1 bestselling He's Just Not That Into You returns with straight talk, humor, and tough love on how to get over him, now that he's gone.

Synopsis:

When Greg Behrendt — comedian and consultant to Sex and the City — laid out the truth about men's "mixed signals" (the truth being that there's no such thing), millions of women found themselves liberated. But knowing a guy's not that into her doesn't mean a woman is not going to be hurt. Now, for every woman who's had her heart broken, Greg and his coauthor-wife, Amiira, offer It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken — a must-have survival guide for getting over Mr. Wrong and reclaiming your inner SuperFox.

This hilarious and helpful book covers everything from how to pull the plug on a relationship and make it stick, to proven remedies for uncontrollable crying, to how to act the first time you see him with another woman. Divided into two parts — "Get Over It" and "Get On with It" — chapters include:

  • There Are No New Messages, so stop checking your machine — and his! — every five minutes
  • He's Not Hiding at the Bottom of That Pint of Ice Cream
  • What's He Thinking? Who cares? But Greg and Amiira respect the need to obsess, so here's a chapter of indulgence
  • If It Was So Great, You'd Still Be Together: seeing the reality for what it was
  • Revenge Is a Dish Best Served HOT! So get out of your pajamas, start taking care of yourself, and find your way back to an even more rocking you
  • Plus: an essential workbook, so you can put the crazy stuff down on paper instead of inflicting it on the world.
Before finding each other, Greg and Amiira had been there, too, and found their way out of the darkness. Now they've come back with a flashlight and a helping hand. It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken is more than the ultimate reference guide to the dissolution of a relationship. It's the voice of encouragement that you need to turn your breakup into a break-over, and get a jump on the brighter romantic future that awaits.
