This book has helped me much more than any one ever has. If you have ever been dumped by someone that you thought was the "one," this book is definatley for you to read. Two years ago, I broke up with a person that meant more to me than any one ever has and it was the hardest thing that i ever had to do. But when i picked up this book one day at a local bookestore, it impacted my life in the most positive way. I learned that i had to grow from this experience instead of wallowing in my own self pity. Thank you Suzanne for writing such a fabulous book!

This book will be of no use when dealing with the break-up of a serious relationship. One of the suggestions is to go shopping. Great, not only will I still have a broken heart, but I'll be up to my eyeballs in credit card debt too. This book is only good for a few laughs when dealing with the break-up of a short and superficial romance.

I picked up Getting Over John Doe for two reasons. First, I have been "getting over" a guy for about six months without much success. Second, I needed a laugh (badly). WRT the first item, it was helpful (although I would never go out and buy expensive shoes on his behalf). More to the point, the book made me see that I have been dwelling on this guy for way too long. A must read for all those who have been dumped. Unfortunately, if you're looking for a laugh, this book doesn't do a very good job providing it. It has its moments, but they're overshaddowed by the long lags between them.

This book was absolutely wonderful. It's for anyone who was dumped by the guy who they thought was different but proved to be ''just like all the rest''. I was stuck in such a rut before discovering this book. It's nice to know that someone shared such a similar experience and survived with such style. It is an incredably uplifting book and everytime I find myself feeling down I pick it up and read it again. Thank you Suzanne!

Thanks, thanks, and thanks again to Suzanne Yalof for this hysterically funny, and surprisingly helpful book. It is, in so many ways, the story of MY life. For weeks my friends have been telling me to "just get over him" but not until I read John Doe did I understand what I had to do. Spurred on by Yalof's advice, I realized it wasn't my fault (as she says, there are just a lot of frogs out there) and so I tore up his photos, triple pierced my ears (he had forbidden me to do it) and set out to rent a movie and have one last good cry. And guess who I met at the video store? Prince Charming! No kidding! A message to my fellow "dumpees": Read this very funny book. It will change your life!

I loved this book!! Suzy Yalof writes a sure-fire hit about getting over a man with sympathy and humor. It is the perfect book for a friend who won't take your advice and needs to learn the hard way or for yourself if you just can't stop dwelling on your own John Doe. Ms. Yalof gives great pointers for getting over Mr. Wrong from Don't Drink and Dial to Doing All the Things He Always Hated. Suzanne Yalof helps any woman get over "him" with laughter, style and preserved dignity. I truly enjoyed this amusing "dish."

i picked this book up for friend who was just given the heave-ho...but ended up having to buy her another copy because i wanted to keep this great read for myself. not just funny and witty--love the bracelet anecdote and mom's golf analogy--but also surprisingly moving and powerful.

I got this book purely by accident. I was researching something to help me deal with my own breakup after a almost 7 year relationship. I was really struggling with explanation I got from being just abruptly abandoned. I saw the cover at the library, picked it up and thought it might help. I was laughing as I was reading and realizing that the signs were there, I just didn't pay attention to them. After reading this book, I realized that it will take time to deal with everything, but at the same time, I can start enjoying my own life and move forward. I would really recommend this book for anyone including non traditional relationships like mine was.
