Authors Anna Jane Grossman and Flint Wainess offer witty wisdom and time-tested tips on how to weather the breakup storm: whether to do it; how to do it; what to wear; and what to do after it's over.

About the Author:

Anna Jane Grossman is a journalist who has written wedding and engagement announcements for the New York Post, New York Observer, and New York Times. She lives in New York City. Flint Wainess is a television and screenwriter living in Los Angeles. Together Grossman and Wainess founded the website breakupnews.com.

From Publishers Weekly:

Operating under the premise that breaking up is an art form "like synchronized swimming," lifestyle reporter Grossman's and television writer Wainess's book cajoles readers to efficiently dump their lame not-so-significant others and proffers up strategies for surviving the aftermath, but the authors are less interested in helping readers than in trying to entertain them. The quizzes, charts, tables, graphs, "breakup trees" and myth-busting lists that populate this book offer little in the way of guidance, instead relying on juvenile humor (on breakup sex: "Ohhh baby, is this hot"; on surviving getting dumped: "just decide your ex is an uber-villain," but "don't...burn down your ex's house") that distracts from the book's breakup philosophy: know what you want to do, then do it, firmly. Readers looking for lessons on the art of the breakup will find little substance here, but the authors' relentless joking, though certainly not for everyone, may appeal to readers looking for a way to while away lonely evenings.
