My wife and I listened to this book on a trip. She does not listen to books. This has lead me to buy several books twice. With this we listened from start to end with laughter as well as a few times to pause where we related our own stories to one another.
One thing to know about this book is that it isn't "funny" book per se. It gets it's humor from stories that are able to be related to.

This book really didn't seem worth the price considering how short it was. Some stories were certainly better than others. Steven Colbert's was just plain terrible.

What would have made Things I've Learned from Women Who've Dumped Me better?
Stories that were actually funny or in some way insightful. This is an attempt by a series of so-so writers to replicate Hornby's High Fidelity - a feat with Hornby himself has not been able to do since that book.
What could the authors have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Made it funny, or not written it at all.
Did the narrator do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
Narrative was reasonable, but nothing special.
What character would you cut from Things I've Learned from Women Who've Dumped Me?
Pretty much all of them. Only 1 story was worth the 10 minutes listening to.
Any additional comments?
Good on Audible for offering a credit back in exchange for this book. Otherwise it would have been a total waste. Don't buy it,
