Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This book is absolutely priceless! In a time when people are finding it difficult to find, be in, or end relationships, Anita Liberty's humor is just the right medicine. She takes you on the rollercoaster of emotions that are experienced when you are "dumped." She says things that (almost) all of us have thought. And she adds a lot of humour. Everyone should pick up this book. It makes you realize you're not alone, and it really makes you laugh! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

"I wish we were back together for just one night . . .

so I could push you out of my loftbed while you were sleeping."

Satirical and sharp, downtown New York City performance artist Anita Liberty reinvents self-help as she skewers her ex-boyfriend in this hilarious, hip, and audaciously candid collection of advice, poems, and diary entries.

"I thought you were a gifted and tortured artist.

I was wrong.

About the gifted part.

Oh.

And the artist part."

From romantic bliss to brutal breakup, from heartache to healing, this fierce, funny, and ultimately liberating homage to being "dumped" rips off the stiff upper lip in favor of a red-hot therapy of wit, wisdom, rage, and redemption. And now, a few words from Anita Liberty . . .

"COMPROMISE--

Lowering my standards.

So you can meet them."

"You're a bad habit.

I want to kick you.

Hard."

Inclues free postcards to send to that special someone! --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

I am Anita Liberty. I am the author of THE CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE (YEP, THAT WOULD BE ME), HOW TO HEAL THE HURT BY HATING and HOW TO STAY BITTER THROUGH THE HAPPIEST TIMES OF YOUR LIFE. They are good books. They are funny. I'm a good writer. I am funny. (I'm working on my personal affirmations.) Oh and ALSO... I am Suzanne Weber and I wrote a book using that name called TO WHAT MISERABLE WRETCHES HAVE I BEEN BORN? Revenge Poetry for Babies and Toddlers. It's good and funny, too. I'm committed to practicing self-love in 2014.

These reviews are either wonderful or awful. The purpose of this book is to take *dumped* feelings to the extreme-hence, the humor. Why is that so hard for some people to take? The inclusion of the word "feminist" in one of the criticisms shows the complete lack of understanding, particularly on the part of (some) people. There are many women out there that are jerks too, do you think that Anita is unaware of that? Do you fault your friends or YOURSELF when they get involved with people who later turn out to be jerks? I think not. But by telling women "just quit becoming involved with bad men" or "every woman I know who has read this book and enjoyed it has only bad relationships" you are totally blaming the person who was most injured by the situation. I think that most people would prefer to be involved in happy, healthy relationships, and most are shocked when this turns out not to be so. I said MOST. Anger is a normal part of the grieving process. This book is a helpful tool for women (or men!) to get their butts in gear and feel better after suffering a massive hit to their egos. What's so horrible about that? Why is justified anger in the face of bad treatment so difficult for you to take?

A good friend gave me the book after my boyfriend dumped me. I'm the type of person who does not believe in hate (think it takes too much energy), so I was skeptical of the book. However, I loved it! It was the first thing after the breakup that made me laugh out loud. Exactly what I needed! Would highly recommend it; just remember its a comedy book.

This book is Great, made me laugh when I needed it, those who dont like it are most likely MEN who have wronged a woman, so who cares what they think.

This is one of my favorite break-up books of all time. A friend of mine bought it for me after one of my (many) break-ups. Actually, I got dumped. Just like Anita Liberty did in this book. The book made me smile and even laugh. It's creatively put together and lets you know that you're not the only one out there feeling down in the dumps because someone didn't think you were good enough for them. I felt better...by hating.

In kind, when my friend who gave me the book got seriously dumped, I was glad to pick up a copy of Anita Liberty's book for him, too. Misery loves company. :)

I read this book when it first came out and I've been dipping back into it regularly for years. I've given it to friends going through hard breakups and friends who are blissed out in love. The response is always the same: "What a great book!" It's not just that it is wickedly funny, which it is, but I also found it to be comforting, insightful and powerful. I think all too often it's easy, or safer, for women to mask anger with depression. Anita Liberty lives out loud, and in the process, she tells a hell of a joke.

Format: Paperback
For those who found this book unfunny because the idea of hate is so horrible or you think she's a man-hater, please, get a sense of humor. This book is not meant to be therapeutic or taken seriously and the reason it's pointed towards a man is only because she's heterosexual.

It's funny and refreshing and reminds people in moments of pain to find the humor in their situation and maybe they just need to allow themselves a little anger, then get over it.

This book made me laugh A LOT. I'm not even going through a break-up or anything. I just think she's clever, witty, and riotous! Easy read--I finished it (unfortunately) in less than a day. :-)

By A Customer on October 8, 1998
Format: Paperback
I recently ordered a whole bunch of books from Amazon, which were great: Woody Allen, Bridget Jones' Diary, other fantasticly funny stuff. I ordered this book because of all the (mostly positive) reviews posted here (I've never seen so many) but what a disappointment when it arrived. Suzanne Weber (aka Anita Liberty, but really, why bother with a fake name?) has an enormous chip on her shoulder. She'd be funny if she were joking but this book spews real life venom like a New York fire hydrant. It lacks substance, it lacks true wit, it lacks feminine insight. Whatever happened to writers like Dorothy Parker who could scrawl vengeance with unimaginable brilliance? Maybe I'll order her books next.
