I bought this book after the love of my life (or so I thought) and I broke up. We had a yo-yo relationship, and broke up quite a few times, but he always winded up weasling back into my life (after I pieced back the broken pieces of my heart) and I let him (big mistake). His recent departure had left me emotionally unhinged and raw. I was badly in need of a crutch of sorts, so I thought that laughter was the best antidote to what's ailing me. This book is small, and you'll be able to finish it in one sitting. It's a fast, breezy read filled with nuggets of wisdom from the authors and real women. Its style reminds me a lot of Cosmopolitan magazine. It has a very conversational, upbeat, irreverent tone. However, in addition to it being a small book, there were pages that were left blank or had only a few words. For the price I paid for this book, I expected the pages to be covered with words and not left blank. Another reviewer said that you could finish this book in an hour, and I concur.

The part about closure is very true. I contacted my ex numerous times after he's shown that he had no interest in me whatsoever. He point-blank told me to leave him alone, and I couldn't do that. I wanted, NEEDED closure. In one of my OCD text-messaging fiascos, I asked him why he wasn't asking me to stay/ or holding onto me? I never got a response. I kept on wanting to get the response that I WANTED, which never happened. He told me to wait for him in the future, that he MIGHT consider marrying me. Sureeeee thing. Put my life on hold for a guy who, as the authors said, "is scratching his balls, sitting on his disgusting couch, watching football and could give two s**ts about your closure plans.

Has your recently dumped friend turned into a whiny, pathetic person? Buy two copies -- one for you and one for her. Then when you get that weepy 3am call from her you can both crack this hilarious book open, read it together and get back to your friendship. (And get her back to her LIFE!) Worth every penny!

This book is almost a small laugh, but low brow. Also, there are only a few words on each page and they are mostly silly and unhelpful advice. It is extremely light reading and not for deep thinkers. You can get the very same advice from sitcoms about girls. There are 2 or 3 important suggestions in this book, but you can get those for free by Googling the author and co-author's names. To me, this book is very overpriced.

This book is hard-core advice for women after a break up to pick themselves up and treat themselves right! My favorite is Chapter 3: Take Care of Yourself! This applies to ALL of us!!! <3
Take away lessons: We are sexy & deserve the good things in life, let's act like it & make it happen!

I know it sounds "sick" but this book is really entertaining somehow. I mean I love the author's writing style. It actually made me feel a lot better reading this and part of it was because it is brilliantly witty!

My boyfriend of 7 months (or 3 years, depending on how you reckon our relationship) broke up with me over text message and Facebook. I was kinda seeing us parting ways at some point, but the manner of the breakup and how sudden it was really shocked me.

This being my first real dating relationship, I decided to be proactive and read as much as I could about breakups and how to handle them. So after perusing Amazon (and against my better judgment), I plunked down a hefty sum for "Dumped", a book with an overall rating of 4.6 and 70 customer reviews.

If you want a "feel good" book telling you how awesome you are an how awful your ex is, this is your book. If you are looking more for a "coffee table" book, with huge fonts and colors and such, this is your book.

But this was not the book I was looking for at all. I wanted more anecdotes, the stages of relationship breakup and the analysis of the stages, maybe a scientific look at what was happening in my mind.

I could maybe have accepted what the book was (I mean, nothing wrong with a "you are awesome, girlfriend!" book) had I not spent so much on it. At $8.42, this was the most expensive Kindle purchase I have made - on a book that took The Slowest Reader in the WorldTM a grand total of 30 minutes to read. I could easily have parted ways with $.99 or even $1.99, but almost 8 times that? For such a slight book? No way.

So I did what I thought made the most sense: I ended up going back through Amazon for a return.

I want to make it clear: this isn't a bad book and I'm not saying "Don't read it!" I'm just saying, it's extremely short and may not be worth the amount being charged.
