I like to read self-help but that is a broad topic. To help break it up (pun intended) I created a sub-genre called: Breaking up is hard to do. It is hard for the broken and the breaker. This list includes some tried and true what I like to call Getting Through It Guides, the ever popular Break Up Memoir, and Break Up Art.
