I highly recommend this book to anyone who is going through a tough/toxic relationship, or going through separation or divorce. Even if you aren't in a relationship, it helps with understanding that loving yourself first, before you ever get into a relationship, is the most important thing you can do for yourself.

Recommends it for: people in toxic relationships who are ready to leave, avid pop-psychology readers
this is a funny little book. the people in it and their interests are very '70s, and some of the examples of the recommended techniques sound silly - telling yourself aloud to STOP when you catch yourself thinking of someone, picturing a person in a repulsive manner (i really don't want to give the imagery on that one). the thing is though, i can really picture these things working, and many psychological theories are cited to back them up.

My mother has now twice reminded me I read this when I was 14 or 15. So here it is on my 'read' list! I do remember it advised the lovelorn to put a rubber band around their wrist and snap it whenever the object of unrequited affection came to mind. I think I tried that.

This is one of the most helpful self-help books I've ever read. Though I began reading it as research for my life coaching beforehand, it was very helpful for me after my last breakup.

The book is really straightforward, and offers information only to explain the processes/activities it lists at the end of the chapter. If you're brokenhearted and you follow the book through and try each exercise, you'll see that your life drastically improves.

Alas, I'm still in love. It did give me a good image for ridicule, though.
