      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.

      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!
