This book just rocks. I came across it at a second hand store while getting over a tough break-up with a co-worker. I really felt like whoever had dropped this book off had passed me on wisdom I will carry for my whole life!

This book helped me understand him, helped me to understand me and most of all helped me to actually move on and see the humour in the situation!

Just a great book that leaves you feeling fab after reading with great and truthful insights on relationships

This book was pretty practical and had some fun quirky quotes and information but I found myself skipping around a lot. Having already ready "Exorcising Your Ex" I would definitely have chosen that book over this one as far as the "i can't put it down" craving.

This book was pretty vindictive. Yes it had some good advice here and there, but maybe I'm just at a better place...this book was kind of forcefully MEAN. Not my favorite. But still an easy read. Can't believe I actually finished it. Haha.

Funny book for those who have broken up with someone. The tone is light-hearted, but it reminds you that life goes on and it is something we all go through at one point or another. This is a fun gift for someone going through a recent break up.

So funny! When going through this past breakup I needed the comic relief that this book provided. I couldn't put it down. Everytime I thought of him or was sad I picked this book up and read a few pages and instantly felt better.

Totally hilarious! A book of break-up survival techniques written by a woman who has perfected break up paybacks. Slightly twisted but overall harmless. I literally laughed my way through the book : )

Tongue in cheek thoughts on boundaries and directing one's own life passions, with a dose of snark.

good stuff. for any girl. although a little too much on the vengeful side. I can do without that.
