Il libro non è male, oggettivamente, è divertente, si lascia leggere piuttosto velocemente, ma il titolo italiano (Generazione Ex - Storie di donne felicemente divorziate) è assolutamente fuorviante rispetto ai contenuti XD Lungi dall'essere una riflessione generica su cosa significhi essere ex nella generazione del boom dei divorzi, è più che altro una riflessione molto particolare, sicuramente spinta da una enorme ed utilissima e piacevole dose di ironia, su cosa vuol dire essere un ex e stare ...more

16. More comedy than self-help, a collection of stories about the extremes that exes (mostly women) go to to make life miserable for their ex. Sometimes confusing, especially when she got into "her second marriage, his third involving exes...." Perhaps flow charts would have been helpful. At times this book felt like a bragging complaint of the author's relationship with her ex and his ex. The most helpful advice in this book: Sometimes it's best to just move on.
