There's no doubt about it--breakups suck. But in the first few hours or days or weeks that follow, there's one important truth you need to recognize: Some things can't and shouldn't be fixed, especially that loser who dumped you or forced you to dump him. "It's called a breakup because it's broken," and starting right here, right now, it's time to dry your tears, put down that pint of ice cream, log out of his e-mail, and open this book to Chapter One-and start turning your breakup into a breakover.
From Greg Behrendt, the co-author of the smash two-million copy bestseller "He's Just Not That Into You," comes "It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken"--the ultimate survival guide to getting over Mr. Wrong and reclaiming your inner Superfox.
