Breakup Girl") is like a wise older sister dishing out practical, down-to-earth and to-the-point advice to the lovelorn. Though most of the advice is just plain common sense (well, for me anyway), it's helpful for those who don't seem to have a lot of "common sense" about relationships. And if the questions from readers are any indication, there are A LOT of people out there like that. The very same day I got this book, a friend came to me for advice. Thanks to the few chapters I had read so far, I was able to help her out. This book is helpful for everyone who is in a relationship, who wants to be, or who hasn't recovered from the last one.

This book contains great advice for anyone breaking-up, making-up, or anything in between. Lynn Harris (i.e. "Breakup Girl") is like a wise older sister dishing out practical, down-to-earth and to-the-point advice to the lovelorn. Though most of the advice is just plain common sense (well, for me anyway), it's helpful for those who don't seem to have a lot of "common sense" about relationships. (And if the questions from readers are any indication, there are A LOT of people out there like that.) The book covers all the "external" issues of breaking-up: rebounds, reunions, post-breakup friendships, dealing with singlehood again, finding love again, even HOW to breakup. What it doesn't cover are the "internal" issues of breaking-up: this is not a psychological self-help book that tells you how to heal a broken heart and deal with the inevitable emotions. (For that purpose, I would recommend "Mars and Venus Starting Over" by John Gray.) It didn't give me a lot of new insights or advice, but it did help to reaffirm what I've known all along. This book would be more helpful for younger people who are new to relationships and facing a breakup for the first time.
I was disappointed that the book didn't have more of the "Breakup Girl" comics that I came to love back when it was online (I still don't know why Oxygen Media decided to discontinue it). There are a few comics with a continuing storyline that illustrate the advice and situations presented in the book. They're a nice complement, but I was hoping for more.

Breakup Girl got me through my single years, and I love to give this book as a gift to friends who might be having romantic troubles of their own. This is solid life advice with a witty twist, not the usual brainless male-bashing or game-playing recommended by most advice books.

I purchased this book for my best friend going through a tumultuous relationship. She loved it so much, I had to get a copy too. We are both going through the book now. I think it offers straight forward advice in a fun format. It makes you look at both sides of the break-up or relationship which is helpful because we have all been on both sides. It is not always so easy to see both sides, when you are currently experiencing just one of them. This book offers down-to-earth advice for almost any situation.
It's just a fun book to have for any relationship you may or may not be in.

The very same day I got this book, a friend came to me for advice. Thanks to the few chapters I had read so far, I was able to help her out. This book is helpful for everyone who is in a relationship, who wants to be, or who hasn't recovered from the last one. Even if you don't consider yourself in any of those categories, the advice is useful to know--when your friends come to cry on your shoulder and ask what's wrong in the world, you'll be able to help them out. (Also, as adamantly as you may not be looking for a relationship, sooner or later you'll find yourself in one, or at least wanting to be in one, at which point you'll be glad you have it on the shelf.) The book is very engaging. It's clear prose is very direct, but still entertaining. Throughout the chapters, real e-mails sent to her web site are printed to illustrate the points (and remind the reader he/she isn't alone). That, perhaps, points to the primary strength of the book: Ms. Harris is only an expert because she's been through it all. Her book is very knowing, entertaining, and (the bottom line) helpful. Highly recommended to everyone who isn't in an arranged betrothal.

You don't need a current hole in your heart to profit from Breakup Girl's sly and provocative wisdom. Don't be deceived--she is much more than Dear Abby with better hair, a delicious sense of humor and probably a Mensa card. Breakup Girl is a shrewd chronicler of urban angst and The Way We Are Now. Her talent for capturing complex feelings of need and entitlement in the Millenial variety of relationship issues never fails to amuse (e.g. on Long-Distance Relationships--"If you really loved me, you'd take the Concorde.") Breakup Girl is an original-- online or off. I suggest that anyone who wants to discover a new way to enjoy the famously painful quest for a partner ought to click the Shopping Cart bar without further pause.

I've been scanning the customer reviews and a lot of them seem to be by women. That plus the fact that the author is a woman and the book's title and heroine are Breakup *Girl* might lead you to believe this is a book aimed at, and only for, women. Not true! I'm a guy and found this book witty, insightful, and relevant. Go out and get yourself a copy!

I was first introduced to breakup girl online. Her website was so funny and had such straight forward and great advice. It wasn't the run of the mill, let's-explore-our feelings mess.
So when I saw the audio boook, I had to check it out. Listening to her in my car, I had to pull over because I was laughing so hard. She is witty and just as straight forward as her website. This book has helped me and many of my girlfriends get through some tough times. It helps to hear someone else put a spin on a break up.
Thanks Breakup Girl!
As a person who's been dumped and been involved with way too many artistic moody types, this is a great book to read to reassure yourself that you aren't the one who is nuts.
