An excellent breakup book that assists not only in dealing with the shock of a relationship ending, but also how to move past the breakup to become a stronger, better person in spite/because of it. Topics such as dealing with breakup myths (I need closure!”) and boundaries (how do I not get into this situation ever again) are refreshing and well-suited to the tone and style. Highly recommended.”
A well thought out and surprisingly thorough book about dealing with a breakup With chapters on learning new boundaries and how to tell the kids, Elliot has covered topics that most books of this genre ignore outright. Chapter 2, The Rules of Disengagement, are a must-read for anyone who has ever suffered a bad breakup, particularly the list of items that keep folks stuck in their griefmost notably the concept of needing closure after a failed relationship Well written and thorough. Practical how-to’s in every chapter. Warm and friendly tone that never comes across as condescending or judgmental.”

This book is excellent for getting past a break up. Even if you haven't experienced childhood abuse or a dysfunctional family, this book is amazing and useful. But if you have, I would recommend it even more strongly, as it covers these additional topics that many break-up related books don't delve in to. This book and Susan's blog helped me so much, and I am quite confident it will be equally helpful to others.
Too often we imagine that without the love of another, we are nothing.
In fact, without self-love, all other loves with be as nothing.
Eleanor Cowan, author of : A History of a Pedophile's Wife: Memoir of a Canadian Teacher and Writer
I really enjoyed this book as it gave you just the right amount of information on the emotions or thoughts you're going through paired with reasonable exercises on what you can do to heal yourself.
