Publisher Comments:

Theres no doubt about it—breakups suck. But in the first few hours or days or weeks that follow, theres one important truth you need to recognize: Some things cant and shouldnt be fixed, especially that loser who dumped you or forced you to dump him. Its called a breakup because its broken, and starting right here, right now, its time to dry your tears, put down that pint of ice cream, log out of his e-mail, and open this book to Chapter One-and start turning your breakup into a breakover.

From Greg Behrendt, the co-author of the smash two-million copy bestseller Hes Just Not That Into You, comes Its Called a Breakup Because Its Broken--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 his wife, Amiira, share their hilarious and helpful roadmap for getting past the heartache and back into the game. You will learn:

• Why you shouldnt call him—and what hes thinking when you do

• How to keep your friends and not lose your job

• How to avoid breakup pitfalls: IMing, stalking, having sex with your ex

• Reframing reality—seeing the relationship for what it was

• How to transform yourself into a hot, happening Superfox and get a jump on the better, brighter future that awaits

Complete with an essential workbook to help you put the crazy down on paper and not take it out into the world, Its Called a Breakup Because Its Broken is a must-have manual for finding your way back to an even more rocking you.

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 ultimatereference 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.

Synopsis:

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