It’s Called a Breakup Because It’s Broken The latest book by Greg Behrendt, author of the multi-million plus copy bestseller ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’, is another hilarious, wry and wise take on relationships and how to move on when one goes sour.

‘He's Just Not That Into You’ is more than a book. It's a revolution. The phrase, coined by Behrendt for an episode of ‘Sex and the City’, has now entered the language: it features in ads, it’s referred to in newspaper headlines and it has spawned spin-off spoof books and more.

‘It's Called A Break-up Because It’s Broken’ promises to do this and more. It will help you get over anyone and move on. Behrendt's voice is unique – combining tell-it-like-it-is advice with humour and the 'guy's eye view'. The book is filled with solid advice to help you let go of your ex – for example: 'It's 3 am, the bottle of wine is empty, do you really want to make that call?'

Each insightful chapter is complemented with a Q-and-A with Greg on what he's thinking, case studies, and games. Greg and Amiira tackle tough issues such as break-up sex, how not to lose your friends during a break-up, and 10 great places to cry. It's the ultimate read and reference for anyone who has ever been in a relationship.


'It's funny, it's snappy and it's very positive.' Richard & Judy

‘For those who simply wish to get on with their lives in a sensible, pain-free fashion, this book has much to recommend it… I can think of few better companions to have stationed by the bed or telephone.’ Sunday Telegraph

‘You can laugh at a sentence like “Idle hands are the devil’s text messengers” and be heartened that there is life post-breakup…you’ll also find insightful, been-there-have-the-scars-to-prove-it wisdom.’ New York Post

‘You will get through this, and you’ll do it faster with the help of It’s Called a Breakup Because It’s Broken.’ Glamour
