I have personally recommended this book at least 6 times already! After a broken engagement with a man that I thought was the love of my life, I had a very heavy heart and felt sad day after day. It was recommended to me to read , “Breaking Up and Bouncing Back”. WOW, what an impact it had on me. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. I wasn’t even half way through reading it and my heartache went away! The book is written in a way that feels like a good friend sharing her story and giving you advice. Samantha is known as a “millennial” expert, however I am a Gen X and think her guidance is exceptional for any generation. Thank you, Samantha! Your experience and understanding helped me so much. I highly recommend this book for any woman who has gone through a break up!~Joyce

“This book is perfect for anyone going through a breakup no matter what the situation was. It is relatable to any age group as well! She gives sound, meaningful, unbiased advice that can be applicable to anyone’s life. It is a must read, I guarantee you will take something positive away from reading this book. There are so many ways that she explains how to cope with a breakup, how to move on and how to be a better you moving forward! ~Laurie

“This book has been my bible through my breakup. It is so relate able, real, and raw to the experiences we go through after our heartbreak. I have found that this book has given me comfort that I am not alone and we all experience these tough times when we lose love. A must read if you are having a hard time and trying to hang on to someone.” ~Amy

“As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I am always looking for books to recommend to my patients. I’ve read this book when it was first published in June, and recently recommended it to a 50 – something-year-old patient whose husband left her for a younger woman over a year ago. While she made amazing progress in her post-break-up journey, I noticed that she still referenced her ex – husband quite frequently. I suggested she read this book, and when she came back three weeks later, her insight into both her 28-year marriage and her own needs as a single woman were remarkable. In fact, she decided she no longer needed to come to therapy. A success all around. On a personal note, I wish I had had this book 25 years ago when I went through my own very difficult divorce. As I read Ms. Burns’ suggestions, I wish that I’d had her by my side then. She is just the girlfriend we all need.” ~Joni

“What I love about this book is how comprehensive it is. It's divided into 3 parts: dealing with the breakup, learning about yourself and practicing self-love (and figuring out what kind of healthy relationship you want), and getting back out into the dating world. This is not a book that you have to sit down and read through all at one time. It has exercises. It has real-world applications. It gives practical advice and things to try. I see this as a manual for your life after a breakup. And Samantha Burns has done her research. She has an extensive bibliography in the back of the book and other books you may want to check out, depending on where you are in your life. She does use some of her own experiences, but the whole book is not based on that. She has done the work to write a book like this! I will admit that I was skeptic--how much can a book really help someone with dating? But here's the thing--she isn't really telling you what to do. First she is telling you about her experience (after a bad breakup) and how she found someone. Then she is explaining what YOU deserve and this is all based on your life, your choices, your goals, and your morals. She provides plenty of examples, and the message she makes loud and clear is: If you don't feel like someone is treating you correctly, then REALLY examine why you are settling. She also asks you to look at any hand you might have had in past breakups and ask yourself why that happened. So if anything, when you finish this book, you will love and understand yourself more and know what type of partner you are looking for. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to really learn from past relationships and work on finding a new one that is healthy.” ~Amazon customer
