Beyond the Breakup

During the years I've been writing this blog, I've read and responded to thousands of e-mail questions from readers about their breakup situations. Eventually, writing and re-writing the same advice became repetitive, so I decided to put everything into a book.

Many of the questions I'd received had inspired posts on the blog; so I started by compiling these. In the beginning, the book was intended to be just that - a compilation of posts about breakups and rejection. However, in the process of compiling the posts, I realized that a lot more needed to be said, and the book grew considerably. I'd estimate that the blog material counts for only 20% of the total content, so even readers who have read every post on this blog will find a lot of new material.

This book cuts to the heart of relationship dynamics and the male state of mind regarding relationships; so even if you haven't had a boyfriend before, you can learn a lot from it. For more detail about the content, I encourage you to take a look at the chapter list at the bottom of this post, and to read the back cover in the image below (you can click on it to see a larger version).
