Shelves: self-improvement
I was not expecting to have to be a guinea pig for this one, but heartbreak sucks. And causes mucho purchasing of self-help tomes. I read this in conjunction with a (not bad) more traditional "grieving your relationship than being stronger" book. I much preferred this. It didn't make me do long assignments, it taught me how to make myself cry, it said things affirmatively, rather than stressing I needed to believe them, and the chapters - one for each day - are short, manageable, nicely written ...more

This book is lovely. My copy has been passed from friend to friend in difficult times. I've even bought and sent new copies to friends going through difficult breakups or just going through the grieving process in general. It has wonderful self-care advice while also guidance for holding yourself accountable for your actions in a gentle way. Really a great read for those in the thick of it. Though - I do recommend reading as directed - one day at a time, one chapter at a time for the full 30 day ...more

they sure want you to do a lot of work, considering they're two guys who say that doing too much of "the work" is pointless and time-consuming...

but i finished it and took a lot of their suggestions, mostly the things that pertain to making lists. i DID NOT get the pet rock!

Reasearch, my boy! It almost reads like a series of one-liners. I tell myself I finished it rather than have to add it to the "Didn't Finish" shelf.
Joanne Nock
As the title suggests, this book is split into small chunks designed to be worked through daily. Some days there isn't any task as such, just answering a question about how you feel that day. Like most " self-help" books there are nuggets of gold in there, but also some more avant garde ideas such as carrying around a pet rock! yes, really.
For me, there wasn't enough substance and it moved on too quickly even though it advocates taking things in your own time. For someone genuinely bereft and

I'm currently going through a self help phase to help me get past my rough patch. I've read great reviews about this book and I'm going to the library today to find this book and check it out. If not, I might break down and buy it because it's gotten such high ratings. I'll let you know if you works.

***I'm having a hard time finding this book anywhere! Was there some mad rush on people having broken hearts this summer? I don't know. Maybe if I get a little birthday cash I will be able to order i

I read this while attempting to cope with a break up. Each day you read a chapter and do the exercises that are supposed to help you heal and accept your new situation in life. I liked much of the advice and while the title is deceiving (because broken hearts sometimes linger for a lifetime and rarely heal in a designated time period), the book does contain helpful tools for dealing with depression and loss.

This book was terrible. It sounds as if it were written by 15 yr old girls making up advice just for grins: "hum yourself to sleep with a lullaby while wearing footie pajamas"?, "make a worry rock and carry it with you and take it out and pet it when you feel bad"? Seriously. I'm insulted! Guess I'm doing better than I thought. And it's only day 16. I'm done with this book.

Got my heart smashed and read this book. I really enjoyed it. Each day you read one chapter and do the exercises in the book. I found it really helpful, especially when you wrote them out. It certainly didn't heal my heart in 30 days, but it did make me see that the person in question was horrible for me.
Melody
This is a must read for anyone one man or woman healing from the end of a relationship. This book will help you hela and grow and realize how wonderful being single is and how much you did not need your ex to be in your life any longer! Highly recommended!

This was a bust for me; it's primarily written for married people.
