Every woman's experienced the Big Breakup. You know the one. And even though it's a devastating natural disaster, after all the mind-numbing, soul-stirring, heart-wrenching pain comes the pleasure: in rediscovering yourself and your amazing life, of relishing in your girlfriends' company, and (eventually) of meeting someone new-someone who would have otherwise gone unmet had you not gone through your breakup in the first place. Enter Lisa Steadman, author and multiple-breakup survivor, who shows you just how to reinvent your breakup-and your life. No more wallowing, no more "woe is me," no more Sex and the City reruns. With Lisa's help, this celebratory survival guide will help you see your Big Breakup not as a breakdown but as an opportunity to break up with a relationship that's no longer working and move on. With Lisa's Movin' On plan, this breakup promises to be the first day of the rest of your relationship life!
He’s Just Not That Into You—based on a popular episode of Sex and the City—is tough love advice for otherwise smart women on how to tell when a guy just doesn’t like them enough, so they can stop wasting time making excuses for a dead-end relationship. It’s the best relationship advice you’ll ever receive. For ages, women have come together over coffee, cocktails, or late-night phone chats to analyze the puzzling behavior of men. He’s afraid to get hurt again. Maybe he doesn’t want to ruin the friendship. Maybe he’s intimidated by me. He just got out of a relationship. Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo are here to say that—despite good intentions—you’re wasting your time. Men are not complicated, although they’d like you to think they are. And there are no mixed messages. The truth may be, He’s just not that into you. Unfortunately, guys are too terrified to ever directly tell a woman, “You're not the one.” But their actions absolutely show how they feel. Reexamining familiar scenarios and classic mindsets that keep us in unsatisfying relationships, Behrendt and Tuccillo’s wise and wry understanding of the sexes spares women hours of waiting by the phone, obsessing over the details with sympathetic girlfriends, and hoping his mixed messages really mean, “I’m in love with you and want to be with you.” He’s Just Not That Into You is provocative, hilarious, and, above all, intoxicatingly liberating. It deserves a place on every woman’s night table. It knows you’re a beautiful, smart, funny woman who deserves better. The next time you feel the need to start “figuring him out,” consider the glorious thought that maybe, He’s just not that into you. And then set yourself loose to go find the one who is. This NEWLY EXPANDED EDITION includes: a new foreword from Greg Behrendt; a new chapter—providing an honest look at the stages of life after He's Just Not That Into You, according to Liz, including exaltation, loneliness, temptation, and balance; and Greg and Liz address the most frequently asked reader questions.

“Kanye West Owes Me $300 might be the funniest rap memoir ever.” –LA Weekly After Vanilla Ice, but before Eminem, there was "Hot Karl," the Jewish kid from the L.A. suburbs who became a rap battling legend—and then almost became a star. When 12-year old Jensen Karp got his first taste of rapping for crowds at his friend's bar mitzvah in 1991, little did he know that he was taking his first step on a crazy journey—one that would end with a failed million-dollar recording and publishing deal with Interscope Records when he was only 19. Now, in Kanye West Owes Me $300, Karp finally tells the true story of his wild ride as "Hot Karl," the most famous white rapper you've never heard of. On his way to (almost) celebrity, Jensen shares his childhood run-ins with rock-listening, southern California classmates, who tell him that "rap is for black people," and then recounts his record-breaking rap battling streak on popular radio contest “The Roll Call”—a run that caught the eye of a music industry hungry for new rap voices in the early ‘00s. He also introduces his rap partner, Rickye, who constitutes the second half of their group XTra Large; his supportive mom, who performs with him onstage; and the soon-to-be-household-name artists he records with, including Kanye West, Redman, Fabolous, Mya, and will.i.am. Finally, he reveals why his album never saw the light of day (two words: Slim Shady), the downward spiral he suffered after, and what he found instead of rap glory. Full of rollicking stories from his close brush with fame, Karp’s hilarious memoir is the ultimate fish-out-of-water story about a guy who follows an unlikely passion—trying to crack the rap game—despite what everyone else says. It’s 30 Rock for the rap set; 8 Mile for the suburbs; and quite the journey for a white kid from the valley. From the Hardcover edition.

Written by a man with extensive experience on the topic, Beyond the Breakup explains how men think about breakups, their ex-girlfriend, and how they perceive her behavior in the wake of a relationship's end. It also explains the implications this has for girls who are going through a breakup: what will and won't have an emotional effect on him, how to maximize your chances of getting him back, how and when you should contact him, what you should (and shouldn't) say, how to deal with seeing him again, and much more. The list of the chapter titles below give a good overview of the content. This book is not written for women with a weak spirit. It isn’t going to tell you how to mitigate the pain you feel in the wake of a breakup, and it isn’t going to tell you that everything is going to be fine. And while it will tell you how to maximize your chances of getting your ex back, it isn’t going to pretend that there are any ‘tricks’ to make that outcome likely. However, it will do something much more important: it will give you a strong insight into your ex’s state of mind and male psychology in general. This will give you the foundation you need to navigate the breakup and – more importantly – propel yourself into honest and successful relationships with the men in your future. Chapter List: Introduction PART I – UNDERSTANDING WHAT HAPPENED Men Don’t Fall in Love the Same Way Women Do The Analogy Between Sex and Commitment Why This Always Happens to You Changing Your Perspective Why You Didn’t See It Coming Men Don’t Have “Commitment Problems” The Difference Between Liking You and Liking You Enough Why Men “Fade Out” You Weren’t Dating Him in the First Place The Small Things Didn’t Matter Anyway Why Your Ex (Who Dumped You) Is Still Contacting You Your Ex and Guilt Your Ex and Pride Your Ex and Decisiveness Interpreting His Emotions What’s Going Through His Mind PART II – HOW TO HANDLE THE BREAKUP The Importance of Silence after a Breakup No, You Can’t Be “Just Friends” How to Know If You Should Cut Him Off Why It’s Never Too Late Why You Should Tell Him That You Are Cutting Him Off What to Say Managing Your Expectations When You Should Fight to Save Your Relationship Exceptions to the Rule How to Know If You Should Dump Him First When He Cheats The Anatomy of Missing Him PART III – FOLLOWING THROUGH WITH THE BREAKUP Making Him Jealous Doesn’t Work Seeing Him at Work Being Connected with Your Ex on Social Media Returning His Things and Getting Yours Back What to Do When He Contacts You When He Says He Wants Another Chance Reason and Distraction Stop Sleeping with Your Ex to Prove He Likes You PART IV – MOVING ON AND REBUILDING You Are Responsible for Your Own Romantic Happiness Stop Letting Him Waste Your Time Know Why You Want Him Back Why Getting Him Back Won’t Help Why Getting Dumped Is a Good Thing The Importance of Emotional Honesty Dating Again Putting the Breakup in Perspective When You Can Contact Him Again Reframing the Future A Final Word
