Synopses & Reviews
The Emmy award-winning former executive producer of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report has assembled a stellar lineup of men who have one thing in common: all have been dumped...and are willing to share their pain and the lessons learned.
Relationships end. And in most cases, even the most callow among us, even men, learn something from the experience. Now in this smart, funny, and insightful anthology, some of our most impressive comedic and creative (male) minds, including Stephen Colbert, Nick Hornby, Andy Richter, Bob Odenkirk, Patton Oswalt, Dan Savage, adn Adam Schlesinger, share with us what they've learned from that all-too-universal experience: being dumped. Whether it be major life lessons, like The Heart is a Choking Hazard, simple truths like, A Dog is No Reason to Stay Together, or profound realizations like, Persistence is for Suckers,THINGS I'VE LEARNED FROM WOMEN WHO'VE DUMPED ME is about that salient something men take away from failed relationships.
Not a touchy-feely, self-help book, this extraordinary collection is packed with stories often painful, sometimes poignant, but always entertaining, from men you probably thought never got dumped -- or if they did, would never admit it.
