Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.
