    This dating bible should replace "The Rules" on everyone's bookshelf

    I was fortunate enough to get an advance copy of this book from a close friend (okay I don't think it was technically allowed, thus the pseudonym, but she was trying to save my sanity...) The Girl's Guide is written with intelligence, spot-on humour, and a very healthy dose of empathy. I was expecting this to make me laugh through my ocean of tears, but found that in addition to the MUCH needed laughs (loud guffaws most of the time) it also provided some very solid, common-sense approaches to navigating the end of a relationship, and the vulnerable period that follows of re-entering the dating scene. I am in my early thirties but would recommend this book for women of a wide age-span; the advice that lies within is wriiten with a startlingly accurate understanding of what it means to live through one of life's universal trials. Frankly, after the drove of books I've seen that all seem marketed towards semi-intelligent women stuck in the 1950's, this was a very welcome relief and extremely helpful to boot. Hats off to Ms. Hirsh- wherever you may be I thank you for taking the time to write this. I will be pre-ordering this for all the women I love, because even if they're in great relationships, this is just a darn good read.

    This is a must-have after any break-up!

    This book is a great help...useful information, advice, humor, and support. I'm in the midst of dealing with a break-up after nine years. This book has made some difficult nights a lot easier-thanks to the author!

    I couldn't believe

    I couldn't believe how much I enjoyed reading this book as I was going through such a difficult time in my own life. It had some really useful advice but most of all it was like having a friend at a time when I was really vulnerable and not all that comfortable sharing my experiences and my thoughts with someone that was directly involved in my life. I really recommend it for anyone going through a hard time. Bravo Delphine

    Very helpful!

    When my boyfriend broke up w/ me I was devestated. I felt alone & like no one understood what I was feeling. I've read a lot of self help books in the past & though, " what the heck, maybe there's a SH book for breakups." When I read the reviews on this book, I was mostly surprised that just about everyone commented on its humor, which I knew would help me the most & it did! This book made me laugh so much as well as helped me make sense of things. It made me realize that I'm not alone, it validated my feelings & most of all...that he's afool! I TOTALLY recommend this book for anyone seaching for help when the guy you thought was "The One" but turns out to be just another jerk!

    Realistic and hopeful

    This book was so helpful during a really hard break up that I went through. With humor and compassion, she helps you focus on the real issues and the process of trying to pick up the pieces after a heartbreak. I thought it was written with wisdom and compassion. It helped!

    Excellent

    The reason I loved this book is that it managed to do the impossible - it made me laugh and feel light in the midst of a really dark time. I do think that a lot of the advice is great, and seems to come from someone who obviously has been heartbroken before, which is another reason why I found this book so helpful. While it seemed like nothing could make me feel better as my relationship was ending, it felt really good to have this book as my companion when I needed it. I would also recommend buying it just so you can be ready to give your friends help and advice. There's alot of advice that would be useful to have when your friends go through a break-up. HIGHLY recommended.

    I am saved!

    A friend of mine sent me this book. I was going to dump it in the trash can because I did not think anyone could tell me how to get over the very painful break I just had with my boyfriend. But I started reading it and I ended up laughing and underlining quotes and sending some to other friends of mine. I felt much better and I intend to follow some of Ms Hirsh's very sound and compassionate advice. Everyone who is between the age of 20 to 60 - including men!-should read it. Many Thanks Ms Hirsh!
