This book gives you the kind of no-frills straight talk that you wish your real-life friends could give.

I buy this book for every friend who goes through a breakup and keep a copy on my shelf just in case I need a refresher. It's a fast read, exactly what you need when you're feeling hopeless and spiraling down the "why why WHY?" hole -- no one wants to slug through a 350-page self-help book when you feel like sh*t.
This book gives you the kind of no-frills straight talk that you wish your real-life friends could give. There's no coddling. There's no, "Yeah, he/she is such a jerk, he/she is probably doing X, Y and Z right now." And there's no attempt at analyzing why he/she did what he/she did and what he/she is thinking, etc. This book recognizes and validates your feelings while expertly smacking you in the face with reality -- that your former partner is not in your life anymore for good reason (and reminding you what a few of those reasons might be) and that thinking (obsessing, rather) about your ex is merely a distraction from moving forward and healing from the pain.
Hands down a must-read for anyone healing from a breakup, no matter how devastating or easy it might have been.
