The latest book by Greg Behrendt, author of the two-million plus copy bestseller "He's Just Not That Into You", is another hilarious, wry and wise take on relationships and how to move on when one goes sour. "He's Just Not That Into You" is more than a book. It's a revolution. The phrase, coined by Behrendt for an episode of "Sex and the City", has now entered the language: it features in ads, it's referred to in newspaper headlines and it has spawned spin-off spoof books and more. "It's Called A Break-up Because It's Broken" promises to do this and more. It will help you get over anyone and move on. Behrendt's voice is unique - combining tell-it-like-it-is advice with humour and the 'guy's eye view'. The book is filled with solid advice to help you let go of your ex - for example: 'It's 3 am, the bottle of wine is empty, do you really want to make that call? How hot is that?' Each insightful chapter is complemented with a Q-and-A with Greg on what he's thinking, case studies, and games. Greg and Amiira tackle tough issues such as break-up sex, how not to lose your friends during a break-up, and 10 great places to cry. It's the ultimate read and reference for anyone who has ever been in a relationship.
Fair. Good copy for reading, may have heavy page wear with writing textual notes highlighting or be an heavily used ex library copy with library markings, stickers or stamps. Dust jacket or accessories may not be included.
Publishers Weekly, 2005-09-19 If He's Just Not That into You told a woman how to spot a man who's not really interested in a relationship with her-and how to deal with it proactively-this follow-up is for those, male and female, who've been blindsided by a breakup after thinking Everything Is Fine. Speaking less this time from a guy's perspective and more as someone who has been dumped and survived, Behrendt tackles the often inevitable symptoms of a broken attachment: the obsessive thinking (and calling and e-mailing), the crying, the debilitating depression (and its effects on one's job performance), the crazy acting-out, the food and spending issues, the friend burnout. This time, Behrendt is aided by his wife, who offers her own breakup stories, with the two together serving as a constant reminder that one can love again. The book is padded with not-so-funny vignettes, and anecdotal letters from readers are answered in a rather wearying Dear Abby style. There's little new or insightful, but Behrendt's frankness-never too harsh-is as winning as ever, and the title is catchy. Everything is more or less in place for this burgeoning franchise.
