Product Description

From Library Journal

Narrator Laura Hamilton plays the part of a wise but somewhat catty girlfriend in this thoroughly modern guide to ending a relationship. A refreshing departure from traditional self-help titles, this is a typical offering from Listen & Live Audio, a company that describes itself as "the lighter side of personal growth." The authors, who have "a combined 30 years' experience slithering out of relationships," offer a well-organized plan of attack including how to know when to ditch, scheduling the ditch, methods of ditching, exit lines, and spin control. The importance of honesty and ending a relationship face-to-face are emphasized. Recommended sites for "expiration dates" include the airport, the park, and his place, where he will "at least have the satisfaction of throwing you out." This unique title is recommended for popular collections.ABeth Farrell, Portage Cty. Dist. Lib., OH

Review

"Ladowsky and Fillion's advice is hilarious, much of it full of common sense. And keep in mind that practice makes perfect." (New York Daily News)

"I'm the czarina of dragging out unexhilarating relationships because I dread ditching people. Fortunately, "How to Dump a Guy" gives an array of tips on how to disentangle yourself from your unwanted man's loving embrace--forever." (Esther Haynes, Jane, May 98)

""How to Dump a Guy" is a handy guide to no-fuss breakup techniques...a fun, feminist read that offers a refreshing counterpoint to all those reams of nauseating books on how to snag and/or keep a man. It's...chock full of wry observations about the opposite sex and unforgiving in its theme to always look out for No.1." (Lee-Anne Goodman, Toronto Sun, Oct. 20, 1997)

"The humor is sharp, intelligent and witty. These women shine a powerful halogen light into the female psyche, revealing some of its shallowness, exposing the thoughts that nobody will admit to having...The book is about women who have men already but don't want them, about women who want independence, women who are not afraid to be alone. All of these serious issues are treated comically and the comedy strengthens the message...Fillion and Ladowsky are gifted writers who share an incisive sense of humour. In this book their collective intelligence comes with a lightness of heart, casting joy and good sense on some of life's most uncomfortable tribulations." -- Allison Schifmann, Book Bureau --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

I find this book a total waste. These two authors seem to be capitalizing on their emotional short falls when it comes to relationships. I do understand that everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. That is my intention, to express my opinion. I feel that these two ladies have no real dealings when it comes to relationship. The way that they portray all men is very insulting. The authors try and give you the impression that all men are stupid and insensitive. This is not true. I am sorry that these two ladies have never experienced a true relationship. As far as their impressions of men go, these two ladies will never experience a loving, give and take relationship. I repeat again "a give and take relationship". For the men that you have dumped in the past using these tactics, more power to them, they are better off without the likes of these two emotionally distressed ladies.

Viciously funny. These two women have an original comic voice-- confident, self-mocking, subversive of conventional sex etiquette and saccharine views of femininity. So this is what women are really like! Fillion and Ladowsky are shockingly manipulative, selfish, emotional, and sexy in turn. But they're always self-aware, and almost always hilarious. I especially liked the decriptions of "Cling-ons and other Difficult to Dump Men."
This book tries to have it both ways -- it's a "how to" guide, and a parody of a "how to" guide--and it succeeds. It should also help many women to get out of relationships they want to work up the courage to get out of.
Like having a great drunken evening with two witty girlfriends.

I was disappointed. It was not nearly as sage and nitty-gritty practical as the book, "How to Dump your Wife" (a gem,) but then marriage imposes more legal realities that require real assistance. This "Guy" book probably would have been more entertaining, as well as useful, in my 20's or even 30's. But for anyone over 35, one's real experiences, friends, family, movies, magazines, etc., have probably already covered most of those points, which were often presented tongue-in-cheek anyway. I considered it mostly "fluff" despite the promise of "meat" on the Today show interview and the Table of Contents. I wish I'd looked through it before buying it right off the shelf.

Format: Paperback
Required reading for any woman in doubt about her relationships and for any man interested in women.
A witty parody of The Rules and other "how to" books, Fillion and Ladowsky have provided women with a highly intelligent, entertaining and useful instruction in the strategy of dating and dumping guys. Women should find this book comical and empowering. It is shockingly candid and successful in clarifying and articulating aspects of dating which are rarely discussed. For men, this book is "a walk through the women's locker room". It will confirm your worst fears about the opposite sex and how your girlfriend describes you to other women.

What do you wear to break up with somone? Where should you do it? How will particular types of guys respond to the break-up? A rolling-about-the-floor funny tome of break-up advice I came across for some story research.
Covering everything from when you should break up with someone to the after shocks (your mother's coronary and rantings that you'll become an old maid, among other potential gems), it's fun reading for anyone with high-enough self-esteem, regardless of sex, even though it's definitely a woman's book. It's a great conversation book full of cheap laughs, even though it's real as hell.

A must read for all women of the '90s.
This is a great book which takes a realistic approach to relationships. It not only gently guides you to the end of the relationship, recognizing that the end happens, but reflects the good and bad. Along the pathway to the end, you are not required to change your inner being (ala Gray et al), just to get out...without harm to yourself...what we all want. The use of humor in this book is great. We have all felt the things these women describe, just have had no avenue to verbalize it.

Tony Robbins could not have raised my self-esteem more effectively than "Dump". I read it and Tin Man wept. I needed some help in the "dressing for dumping" department and went from Liz Claiborne to Spice Girls on the day of the dump. Telling Tin Man he was too possessive while wearing spiked heels and a belly top seems to have done the trick. Problem was, once he lapped, I snapped. Exit-ed with "I will only cause you pain". A must read!

This book is terribly funny! I wish I had this book when I was 20!
The character descriptions for the "types" of men is so accurate, I was laughing out loud! If I only knew then, I could have saved myself some grief.
Tips and tricks are wonderfully funny and take the edge off how stressful breaking up can be for women. And teaches you to laugh at the mistakes you have made!
A fun but helpful read for any girl - any age!!
