      Asking for help is really hard for me. I was raised by a incredibly stubborn, independent and self-sufficient woman, so, shocking no one, I grew up to be stubborn, fiercely independent and self-sufficient lady. I learned to ask for and accept help, but it took a long time, and my built-in reflex is still to tell people to go fuck themselves when they are like "I'm here for you". So when a writer is like "I'll be with you through this journey and it will be OK, we'll do this together", I have an [...]

      Any book that starts off with "Well fuck" is the kind of book that I want to read. And that's how it feels when you've been heartbroken. But this book isn't just about romantic love; you can experience heartbreak in different ways. The thing I liked most about this book is that Rinzler doesn't sugar coat anything; he's direct and honest, but also sympathetic and supportive, and he shares personal experiences. It's set up in a manner in which you can go to whatever chapter you need the most at th [...]

      Share this book with someone who is heartbroken. Consult this book when you are wondering if you should leave him. Pull it out when you are missing someone you can't see again. Pick out the chapter that fits the current hell you are experiencing. My favorites sections are: If You Wonder What Happens When a Loved One Dies; and If Society Has Broken Your Heart; and If You Feel Relief-Guilt. Breathe, sleep, eat, read, meditate, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat. Survive.

    4. Daniel Swensen on said:

      If you're going through a hard time and have Buddhist sensibilities (or even if you don't), this may be one of the most simultaneously difficult and necessary books you could read. The text is supportive but unflinching, and the advice genuinely practical. (Useful for all kinds of heartbreak, not just romantic heartbreak as the title and cover seem to imply.)

    5. Jess Dollar on said:

      I love the library. I can go there and look at the "New Non-Fiction" shelf and pick something I've never heard of and take it home and fall in love. It happens all the time. This wonderfully little book is my latest random library find. It only takes an hour or two to read, but it's meant to be the type of book you go to again and again when you need encouragement. This book is for everyone, as we are all heartbroken about something. I found it funny, relatable, and really heartwarming. I'll def [...]

      Alright, this book was awesome. Going into it I was not expecting much, just some Buddhism mixed with how to heal if you are hurt. And yes, that is what it was in a sense, but it could not have been more perfectly done. The second I opened the book and saw the first line that read "Well fuck. If you're reading this you are probably heartbroken." I knew I was going to love this book. Rinzler does not get preachy or overly spiritual. He remains down to Earth and when you read his words you feel as [...]

      Well, as someone who has spent the last 30 years heartbroken (and who feels that it is entirely inadequate that I haven't "moved on") I found this sweet, wise little book a consoling pleasure every time I picked it up. First of all Rinzler gives the simplest meditation instruction I have ever read that offers ANYONE the tools to meditate (sit for 10 minutes a day, have decent posture, focus on your natural breathing, when your mind wanders, note that and focus on your breathing again). Each chap [...]

      "Another thing Suzuki Roshi once said was, 'Life is like stepping onto a boat that is about to sail out to sea and sink.'""The Zen master Seung Sahn once said, 'Being a bodhisattva means when people come, don't cut them off; when people go, don't cut them off.'""As the Zen master Thich Nhat Hahn once said, 'Understanding is the other name of love. If you don't understand, you can't love.'""Yet here's the simple truth: we are always creating society. Every time we interact with someone we are cre [...]

      This book gave tidbits of sound advice. The best takeaways were: 1) Love is innate to who we are.2) Heartbreak is based in expectations/feelings of how we think things should be and what they truly are. 3) The ego is based on a set of expectations and perceptions as to how we handle situations. This closes ourselves off to giving love, making it conditional.4) Everything changes.5) If you need to distance yourself from someone, still do not give up on them. Forgive and remain open to change.

      Quyển sách dành cho những trái tim đang tan vỡ. Có rất nhiều những ý tưởng đậm chất "Phật" ở trong cả cuốn sách. Mình cũng ko đọc hết cuốn sách này từ đầu đến cuối, mà chỉ rả rích theo mục lục chọn lấy một phần giống mình nhất để đọc. Tiêu đề mỗi phần là một câu hỏi gợi mở "nên làm thế nào?" khi có vấn đề gì đó. Ví dụ câu mình nhớ nhất là "làm thế nào khi bạn muố [...]

      If you need this book, I’m sorry. However, if you have to be heartbroken, this book is the best companion possible. Mr Rinzler holds your hand in the most comforting way. Short sections can be read whenever you need them. And, they can be read day or night- whenever you need a friendly companion. This book is a blessing. It helped.

    12. Emkoshka on said:

      First book of the year! I devoured it in less than 24 hours, it was that compelling, inspiring and helpful. After recent recurrent heartbreak, it's helped me to refocus and recommit to what I'm doing with my life and to start planning for more healing spiritual encounters like this one. What a great gift from the universe!

    13. lotus on said:

      heartbreak (n.): the vast pain that we suffer in response to our expectations not being met in some way; a facet of reality as a human beingAs someone who is going through heartbreak and is Buddhist this book is really helpful and positive that it makes me feel and know there is hope.

    14. Missy on said:

      My favorite part of this book was the definition of heartbreak. I don't remember it exactly, but it's something like "heartbreak is when your expectations aren't met." Good reminder that letting go of expectations -- of other people, of life in general -- is the path to ending suffering.

    15. Nicholas on said:

      winI am going to admit I am fifty fifty on this book. I like it, but at the same time I dislike it. The start of the book through me for a curveball. It was still a good book and nicely done.

    16. Sheelah on said:

      Spot on observations about heartbreak and life. Lodro talks to many people about their heartbreak and in the process learns about his own and will guide the reader through theirs. A quick read and comforting buddhist perspective. Loved it.

    17. Pia Abrahams on said:

      [4.5 Stars]This is a very big little book. I cannot recommend it highly enough. If you feel like you need it, read it.

    18. Andrew on said:

      A powerful toolkitThis book is a powerful toolkit for dealing with heartbreak, wether you read it front to back or pick what you most need from it.

    19. Molly on said:

      I thought I was normal. This book made me realize that I am heartbroken. Aren't we all?

      Este libro llegó a mi en el mejor momento. Si tienes la oportunidad de leerlo, hazlo. GRANDES enseñanzas para toda la vida.

    21. Mindy on said:

      Not all heartbreak is from romance. Honest practical commentary (i dont want to call it advice) from someone who has climbed out of despair from all different angles. Losing a loved one, the end of a relationship, disappointment in society or yourself all reason to be heartbroken amd all covered in these short encouraging chapters. I learned that if Kaylee recommends a book im probably going to read it!

    22. Renee on said:

      A tiny, enjoyable and quick read about getting through all of life's various heartbreaks (not just of the grownup relationship kind). Rinzler swears a lot more than I expected from a Buddhist, but it's cute and all meant in good humor. A great pick-me-up when you're having a tough day and just need to refocus and get your head straight.

    23. Mary on said:

      A quick read filled with suggestions and advice on dealing with many different kinds of heartbreak. The author uses Budhist teachings and examples from his own life to help readers with specific feelings.

    24. Steven Elliott on said:

      Rinzler returns with a book that explores that many avenues of heartbreak. Insightful and filled with experiences of his own and others, the author searches and offers ways to view how our heart breaks and how to find healing even in the worst of times. This read could fill anyone's void and would charm the hardened of hearts.

    25. Root_rambler on said:

      I did enjoy this book, but in the end, I thought that most of the advice was common sense and I didn't come away with too much new understanding. It is very short, and if you can't handle reading a lot, each "chapter" (really just a few pages) is standalone- you can read and think about it. On the other hand, if you're looking for something really in-depth, this is not it.

    26. Kristen Heimerl on said:

      Such an unfortunate "weighty" title for such a wonderful little book for all of life's disappointments--the major traumas AND the daily blows. Don't get scared by the word "Buddhist" in the title. Yes, Lodro is a Buddhist. But, frankly, he just may become the compassionate healer of our time. He's witty, vulnerable, real, and exudes generosity and empathy. If you're familiar with Pema Chodron, look to Lodro to carry forward the Shambhala voice to the masses as Pema continues to age--he's just th [...]

      Love hurts – or more accurately, the ending of love hurts, and this wise, witty accessible volume, subtitled Buddhist Advice for the Heartbroken, may go some way towards healing the hurt. Rinzler gives examples from his own life, sharing the ending of some of the relationships he’s lived through, including one that coincided with the collapse of his professional life. It’s filled with heart-warming advice and is a light, pithy read, and when you’re crawling out of heartbreak, you need al [...]
