Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
After Fahey and Rosenthal both ended long-term relationships on the same Fourth of July weekend, the idea for this bawdy and comical self-help book was born. Here, the duo offers guidance and personal anecdotes to help fellow lady-folk get over break-ups. Their advice is seldom measured, tending as it does toward diatribes and panegyrics, and often screaming off the page in big and brightly colored clichés like "STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE!" But perhaps they can be forgiven for their reliance on platitudes—Fahey and Rosenthal are great company, and sometimes the bearers of genuine wisdom: the ladies insist on abandoning hope for closure, noting, "You're never gonna hear what you think you wanna hear." The book is also peppered with inspirational quotes from famous people ranging from Mae West to George Eliot, and is dedicated to Anne Boleyn, "the most famous dumped chick of all time." There is even fun ladies' magazine fare like pop quizzes and suggestions on books and movies to help you get over him (or her). While occasionally trite and predictable, this book will provide some much-needed smiles for readers who find themselves sobbing and newly single. (Sept.)

This book helped me see a very serious and depressing breakup situation in a more balanced light. These authors really give you the straight poop, but pepper the serious with a lighter side, that is often hard to see when you're depressed or seething with anger. The strongest and healthiest message I got from the book was to forgive your ex...it's so hard, but soooooo necessary to move on. In the end why waste another second of energy on something that wasn't working and most likely sapping you of your self esteem. This book tells you to forgive your ex for yourself because you're worth it and I agree 100%!
