Okay, so this looks like a self-help book and not the kind of thing that Lovereading would feature right? Not entirely. Written by the co-author of He's Just Not That Into You and his wife (aww), this is a hilarious, yet very practical guide to getting over your ex. Even if you're part of a smug couple I'd recommend a peek for the fantastic insights as Greg and Amiira write as a team with alternating male and female perspectives. If you've ever drunk dialled, you'll be doing yourself a favour by reading this book!
He's Just Not That Into You is more than a book. It's a revolution. The phrase, coined by Behrendt for an episode of Sex and the City, has now entered the language: it features in ads, its referred to in newspaper headlines and it has spawned spin-off spoof books and more.
It's Called A Break-up Because Its Broken promises to do this and more. It will help you get over anyone and move on. Behrendt's voice is unique combining tell-it-like-it-is advice with humour and the 'guy's eye view'. The book is filled with solid advice to help you let go of your ex for example: 'It's 3 am, the bottle of wine is empty, do you really want to make that call?'
Each insightful chapter is complemented with a Q-and-A with Greg on what he's thinking, case studies, and games. Greg and Amiira tackle tough issues such as break-up sex, how not to lose your friends during a break-up, and 10 great places to cry. It's the ultimate read and reference for anyone who has ever been in a relationship.
