It's past two in the morning. You're on your third glass of wine. You're wearing his sweater because it still smells like him (and quite frankly, he never really smelled that great, but we'll give it to you). Stamp out that dumb French cigarette and put down that phone. No, really, don't make that call. Why? Because you're not that girl, looking for another chance with someone who has proven himself unworthy of your greatness, or sitting alone with a box of tissues while a world full of possibilities waits outside your door. 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, pop in this CD, and start turning your breakup into a break-over.

IT'S CALLED A BREAKUP BECAUSE IT'S BROKEN is the ultimate survival guide to getting over Mr. Wrong and reclaiming your inner Superfox. From how to put yourself through "he-tox" to how to avoid Revisionist Romance Disorder, Greg and Amiira share their hilarious and helpful roadmap for getting past the heartache and back into the game.

The longer you stay stuck in a dead-end relationship, the less time you get on this planet to experience a great one. IT'S CALLED A BREAKUP BECAUSE IT'S BROKEN is a straight-talking, spot-on, must-have manual for finding your way back to an even more rocking you. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane Gehr | 2/11/2014

    " This book was recommended by my therapist when I was going through a painful breakup. There are things in it that are harsh, but they were all things I needed to hear. I HATE this book...but it helps, it really does. I never thought I'd have to pull it off the shelf again, but here I am, back amongst its pages. And it's helping. Again. If you've been crushed by the end of a relationship, READ THIS BOOK! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim | 2/10/2014

    " I LOVED this book! It's soooo funny! Oh and very true! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Heather | 2/9/2014

    " Best breakup book ever! Especially if accompanied with John Mayer's 'Continuum'. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rachel | 2/8/2014

    " Was curious and it was very lame and annoying! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alysia | 2/4/2014

    " Great book...funny and to the point. A must read for a broken heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maya | 1/31/2014

    " This book made me laugh a lot and I actually think it made sense. Very quotable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janet | 1/9/2014

    " Not quite as fabulous as Greg's "He's Just Not That Into You" but still full of some nuggets of wisdom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kate | 1/8/2014

    " Another classic Greg book. Even though I haven't broken up with too many people in the past 26 years, I'll still pick it up again and re-read it. Great stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Justine | 1/6/2014

    " Not rocket science but entertaining. I liked the emphasis on self-care rather than fulfledged craziness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaba | 12/24/2013

    " It was ok. I learned to just let shit go. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lilya | 12/13/2013

    " Yes, I know, it's a silly self-help book, but honestly it was a fun, quick, easy read. Many of my girlfriends who have gone through recent break-ups found it helpful for moving on and not falling into the relapse trap of relationships-gone-bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alli | 12/8/2013

    " I enjoyed reading this book after a break up and have actually recommended it for some of my friends. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathi Repka | 11/26/2013

    " This was a comical book and it did make me laugh! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 11/21/2013

    " this book is light and fluffy, but gave some good tips. The authors definitely like the word "superfox" much more than I do. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nina | 11/15/2013

    " Really excellent book. Sit down with a pint of Ben & Jerry's and cry your heart out while you heal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jen Beard-Mueller | 11/12/2013

    " Loved this one too... Buy it for friends that need the support. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Davey | 7/19/2013

    " recommended by an ex girlfriend (pre-breakup). shamelessly panders to the eternal need for external validation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Whitney | 5/11/2013

    " Like "He's just not that into you," this book is a fun, light read. But just because it's fun and light doesn't mean it doesn't make sense! Greg and his wife Amiira make good points about how to move beyond a breakup and take care of yourself. I highly recommend it to all women. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 5/8/2013

    " Must read for every break-up! Hysterical! You'll be so happy you're single! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 3/4/2013

    " I got depressed reading this, but it did seem like a very good book to read. A friend recommended it to me and it was nice to get a different perspective. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheetal Patel | 12/31/2012

    " i think everyone should have a break up book to get through a breakup. and this one is pretty fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole | 12/10/2012

    " Once again Behrendt did not disappoint. He takes a hard subject and puts a hilarious spin on it that is sure to have you feeling light-hearted and more knowledgeable about relationships in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie Chavez | 10/28/2012

    " Another MUST READ for every gal (or guy) out there! You WILL relate somehow when you look back on your post-break up phases and wish you had the book sooner! VERY humorous! Gives both a male AND a female view on breakups w/ absolutely NO sugar-coating! LOL! Too funny! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Colleen | 6/4/2012

    " Hardly earth shattering but still helpful nonetheless. Reminds you not to become that ex. And sad to realize that we ALL fall into stereotypes so easily. I saw myself and my exes in a lot of the examples. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 7/30/2011

    " I read this book years ago, and it's come in handy at various times in my life. I've also loaned it out to friends, and they've always handed it back to me with a big thanks. Once again, reading it gave me some nuggets if wisdom that I hope to use. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 6/12/2011

    " This book jumoed off the shelf at me right when I had chosen to end a 7 year relationship and when I finished it I thought 'Why the hell didn't I read this years ago!' "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenifer | 4/30/2011

    " There really isn't anything "groundbreaking" about Behrendt's advice, but this must-have instruction manual to break-ups is both comforting and comedic, in that Greg Behrendt sort of way. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emmanoelle | 4/24/2011

    " I am not into self-help books at all, I actually hate them. But this one is funny, smart, and easy to read (I wish breakups were easy too). I recommend it!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fenemi | 4/15/2011

    " All the advices are given are simple, logical, and universal. The book is especially helps women to cope their ex. The authors used pretty encouraging tone while they move on one another chapter.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kerry | 4/10/2011

    " All i can say about this book is "Duh." Of course its much easier to say that now that I am married and no longer dating. When I was dating, I needed this book, much in the way that you sometimes need to be told you're an idiot and possibly slapped, LOL. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Noelwellin | 4/5/2011

    " Good to read if you're going to read He's Just Not That Into You, too. Funny, easy to read, not terribly memorable, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 2/27/2011

    " Good book for women who are going thru a devasting break up. I have two daughters who I got this book for, the are going thru heart breaking break ups, and this book just give them advice that they are not alone, and life goes on. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 2/3/2011

    " Must read for every break-up! Hysterical! You'll be so happy you're single! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Krista | 2/3/2011

    " Really good and super funny! Also had some great points. Excellent book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/26/2011

    " Its a nice reminder that you can still live despite everything else. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Indigoflowers | 12/24/2010

    " Probably the best breakup book out there. I loved this book. I didn't know whether reading about breakups would make me even more upset, but believe me, this book had me laughing out loud. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Domi | 12/2/2010

    " Really light! An easy read! Really makes you feel better! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 10/29/2010

    " I thought this book provided some good advice. I just think the first section with letters and answers could have been shorter and the advice section could have been longer. I also wish there had been a bit more for being the one doing the dumping. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathrin | 10/17/2010

    " This book - literally - saved my life! I am so glad that I found it on Amazon. I wouldn't have been able to get over my ex and the nasty breakup with this p***y. Greg, thank you so much!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 10/3/2010

    " Best breakup book ever written. "
