Publisher's Summary

The pain from a breakup is unbearable. But the only thing more painful is never getting over it. There is a right way to get over a breakup. And this book shows you how.
The end of a relationship is hard. You spent so much time with this person. You shared so many memories. You invested so much of yourself. And now, it’s over. The emptiness leaves you feeling hollow. That a piece of your life just vanished. And you don’t know how to recover from it.
What do you do?
This audiobook takes you though the steps you need to take in order to recover from a hard breakup. You need to let yourself grieve and give yourself time, but you also need to take practical steps that will help you get your life back together. This audiobook will teach you those steps.
This audiobook starts with the mindset you need to have - that breakups are hard, that you need to have patience with yourself, and that you need to show kindness to yourself. You’re in a fragile state, so you must take care of yourself right now.
Then, the audiobook teaches you what to do: vent your emotions, put your ex out of your mind by removing reminders, reflect on the experience - what you learned and how you can do better next time, to reconnecting with family and friends, taking time to treat yourself and having fun, connecting with your inner-self, and culminating on improving yourself and reconnecting with the present moment in your life.
Recovering from a breakup is a process - one that takes time, but one that can and must be done. Use this audiobook as your guide in order to help you recover from your breakup - so you can then go on to become your best self.

Narrator Drove Me Crazy. So Robotic.

This book had some fairly good content, but the narrator was driving me crazy with the unnatural pauses in the sentences. It became robotic sounding. For example, if a sentence was something like, "When you are dealing with a break-up, it's helpful to get out and do the things you love.", then the sentence was read more like, "When you are dealing ...(pause)...with a break-up...(pause)..., it is helpful ... (pause) ... to get out and do the things you love." At times, I couldn't concentrate on the advice due to my irritation with the pauses. I urge you to listen to the sample audio. The narrator's voice is nice enough, but listen through the whole sample because you can hear the pausing at times. I don't know how the performance became so highly rated, as I could not connect with the style at all.

As for the content/advice, I thought it was good enough. It was largely your typical type of advice, "Don't contact your ex. Get out and do the things that you love." One piece of advice was not to consider the time that you were in the relationship as wasted time, but instead to consider it a "gift of experience." I can't say that I'm totally on board with that idea, but maybe I'm just not there yet mentally. I would agree with most of the rest of the advice.

I preferred "It's Called a Breakup because it's Broken" because it was more enjoyable (except for the frequent use of the calling the listener a "superfox" which gets old almost immediately and some of the stories that sounded very loony tunes). This audiobook is fine, but if you're hurting, I find that I'd rather listen to something more enjoyable or listen to a voice that I can relate to more.

"How to distract yourself after a breakup"

Would you listen to another book narrated by Steve Barnes?

The narrator was pleasant

Any additional comments?

I chose this book because of the ratings and the length, less than two hours! Then, I found myself struggling to get through those measly two hours. The information is pretty superficial, almost too practical. This book can be good for someone just very recently getting over a breakup but if its been a while and you are looking for something deeper, this is not your book.
