It's Called a Breakup because It's Broken: The Smart Girl's Breakup Buddyby Greg Behrendt
Synopses & Reviews
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:
