His acclaimed stand-up comedy has been seen on HBO, Comedy Central Presents . . . , The Tonight Showwith Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. A former consultant on Sex and the City, he lives with his wife, Amiira Ruotola-Behrendt, in Los Angeles with their two children.
    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. From how to put yourself through “he-tox,” to how to throw yourself a kick-ass pity party, Greg and his wife, Amiira, share their hilarious and helpful roadmap for getting past the heartache and back into the game. You will learn:

    • Why you shouldn’t call him—and what he’s thinking when you do
    • How to keep your friends and not lose your job
    • How to avoid breakup pitfalls: IMing, stalking, having sex with your ex
    • Reframing reality—seeing the relationship for what it was
    • How to transform yourself into a hot, happening Superfox and get a jump on the better, brighter future that awaits

    Complete with an essential workbook to help you put the crazy down on paper and not take it out into the world, It’s Called a Breakup Because It’s Broken is a must-have manual for finding your way back to an even more rocking you.

    • Great Gift and Read!

      I purchased this for my friend who was going through a bad break up. She said this book really made sense and helped her laugh and see the brighter side of things including how beautiful she still was a person despite the horrible break up. Sometimes a man can make you feel less than worthy in her words and it was nice to reminded of how much he lost when he broke up with her.

    • If I knew then, what I know now ...

      A humorous, yet informational, book on break ups. If I would've had this book years ago I never would've drunk dialed as often as I did and would've been the superfox that I know I am now. This book isn't in-your-face, what-YOU-did-wrong, lecturing psychology ... it's like your best guy friend telling you what you need to hear while building your self-esteem too. You don't have to read every chapter ... example, I didn't read the chapter about getting rid of his stuff ... I didn't have any of his stuff to get rid of. But I did read the chapter entitle "What's He Thinking" ... don't we ALL want to know that?! I highly recommend the author's book, "He's Just Not That Into You" also. Both books have saved me (& my friends) uneccessary heartache and embarrassment. When the right guy DOES come along, and thanks to the books mentioned, I'll be better prepared to recognize him and hold on to him ... and if he's NOT the right guy, I'll know that too and he won't bring a superfox like me down! Don't read this book if you're wallowing in self-pity and are looking for Dr. Phil-type advice ... you need to know that you are going to get over that guy and you should definitely have a sense of humor!
