Editorial Reviews

Smith Magazine
"Winks at you while offering strategy as to how to best survive the fall."
Your Life! Magazine
Witty wisdom and time-tested tips on how to weather the breakup storm...how to do it; what to wear.
Library Journal
If going through therapy and reading relationship books doesn't work, it's time for this lively guide developed by journalist Grossman and screenwriter Wainess. Striking a witty yet empathetic tone, the authors examine why so many relationships fail and discuss how to get ready for good-bye and how to break up as painlessly as possible. There is even a chart that helps partners divvy up mutual possessions and a list of the best things about being single again. Gleaning much of their information from their web site BreakupNews.com, which chronicles the breakups of couples all over the world, Grossman and Wainess have skillfully put together best and worst practices. This is a great book for those who have been dumped, are on the verge of being dumped, or are ready to dump someone-in short, everyone who's been in a relationship. Highly recommended.
