Finally, there's a book that will help you understand what you've been through, and what you'll go through if your next relationship falls apart, as it probably will. It's Not Me, It's You is the how-did-I-ever-live-without-it-before guide to initiating, getting out of, through, and over a breakup. It includes: Common types of relationships, and why they won't work: from the "mad about yous" to the "make your parents happies" to the "buck fuddies", Tried and true strategies for leaving your love in the lurch (or leaving in style, depending on your history together): from celebrity faves like the "Brad Pitt" to the always classy "Slow Fade" to the popular but meaningless "It's Not You, It's Me", A glossary of essential breakup terms, such as "antiquing," "outsourcing," and "the payback sack", The real translations of such breakup lines as "We can still be friends" and "I love you but I'm just not in love with you".

Editorial Reviews

Smith Magazine
"Winks at you while offering strategy as to how to best survive the fall."
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.
