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

"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.See all Product Description
