4.0 out of 5 stars Help on Surviving a Breakup
If you tend to endure a breakup holed up in your room in comfy PJs, then getAbstract recommends that you place this survival guide next to your chick flick DVDs, high-priced chocolates and box of tissues.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a break up not a break down.
Light hearted book with great advise for a break up but not suitable for a relationship envolving children. I would like to take up alot of the advice but impossible when a certain amount of contact has to be continued for the sake of the kids.....much more complicated then! Like I said, great for when no kids are on the scene.

If you tend to endure a breakup holed up in your room in comfy PJs, then getAbstract recommends that you place this survival guide next to your chick flick DVDs, high-priced chocolates and box of tissues. This girl-power book by Lisa Steadman, nicknamed "The Relationship Journalist," reads like a long "You go, girl!" exclamation. Steadman explains that you can use the "big breakup" experience to become more fabulous than before you met Mr. Wrong. All it takes is a little fortitude and a lot of self-focused behavior. If you want to indulge in a cryfest, a new pair of boots or a bit of spoiling by mom, Steadman says, "Do it!" The goal, however, is to emerge from your breakup with a better understanding of what you need and want and how to make it happen. Use your breakup as a vehicle to learn about yourself and embrace your single status as an opportunity to make valuable changes. One gentle caution: Steadman's basic intent is to offer a good laugh, some female bonding and a warm hug, not a serious, therapeutic method of overcoming a trauma.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its called a breakup ,not a breakdown., 18 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the book helpful in my situation and suportive as I have been going through a breakup with not many friends around. The book is composed of chapters that take you through the different stages of relationship breakup and it's good in the sence that you can read the book and progress onward with your recovery. Written by a woman for women. Only a woman could undestand the emotions and feelings that her fellow woman experiences during a breakup. I will keep this book for my girlfriends and daughters if ever the need arises and hand it over with a box of ....chocolates not tissues. There is a lot of wize advice within the pages that i found most helpful,

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 2 April 2013
I honestly feel that this book saved me. I was in a terrible place when I bought it, but it helped me to put things into perspective and to see that things would get better (with the help of my Boo Hoo Crew, of course). If you feel blue after your breakup, you need to read this book.
