    1. This is a book that shows that being heartbroken should be treated the same as the loss of someone or a divorce, because we suffer the same feelings like grief, anguish and pain.

    4. Aside from the file issues (double "ff" letters and the letters "fi" do not show up in the ebook edition), I found this book to be entertaining. I also had to put it down and cry a little.

    5. One of the most frustrating parts of life to me is when something happens and I can’t wrap my mind around it. I just can’t understand it. I beat myself up and wonder why I can’t move on when it is the most logical thing to do. I’ve never understood why it is so hard, and why it can be so painful. This book did such a wonderful job providing real examples that show us we’re not alone in our thoughts/behaviors when dealing with heartbreak. The reasons seemed so simple, but something I’ [...]

    6. I read this book in one sitting and loved it.I'm sure everyone can relate to feeling broken hearted, the passing of a loved one, break ups and betrayels. This book explores case studies that Guy Winch has come across in his years of being a practising psychologist. He explores why society treats different heartaches differently and the physical and emotional deterioration one feels when experiencing a broken heart. This is a brilliant book and such a quick, great read. It validates the readers e [...]

    7. A very short and easily applicable help book that uses anecdotes from a psychologist with a private practice to show that a journey from, through, and over heartbreak is possible. Steps to get over are practical and don't ask much, with the condition of time. A good reminder that, as much as time heals, we initiate and maintain our own healing. In conjunction with Dr. Winch's TED talk, it's transformative.

    9. Do yourself a favor and download the Mend app instead of reading this book. Same scientific data to back up the assertions, but with fewer editorial mistakes.

    10. Good book talking about two kinds of heartbreaks: relationship ending and the loss of a Pet. The writer is psychologist and he shares in his book real stories from his patients and the way he helped them to heal.Interesting that he mentioned mindfulness meditation as one of the ways he used, also the concept of taking a decision to define what we want to be (being in control and being accountable) after a heartbreak is important.Personally liked the stories couldn't relate for some but still int [...]
