Bought this book expecting a funny, tongue-in-cheek, light-hearted self-help book.

It started out as a 3* book for me, silly but amusing - I even laughed out loud a couple of times! It then started slipping, first to a 2*, then to a 1* as I think reading anything other than this is a better investment of your time.

Do not recommend!

This book didn't do much to hold my attention. I started reading it in October of 2007 and just finished last night because I couldn't sleep and didn't have any other books nearby, if that's an indication. It was funny in parts, but while I can appreciate trying to make light of a situation there really isn't a whole lot that's funny about a breakup, even years later.

The premise of this book is misery loves company. Tips offered like: We have all been hurt but can find love again. Look on the bright side--at least you didn't lose your virginity in a leaky tent. Don't have sex on the first date, but if it's meant to be, it could be ok. Wanting revenge after a breakup, turning the tables, moving on (how?)--no real advice, but many anecdotes.

I read this for the comedic value so I enjoyed it immensely. My library colleagues and I had quite a bit of fun with it before I decided to take it home.

Recommends it for: the heartbroken
Started out pretty funny but doesn't give much advice on how to get over a breakup. In fact, it tells you you don't have to. Still enjoyable.
