Real heartbreak is unmistakable. We think of nothing else. We feel nothing else. We care about nothing else. Yet while we wouldn't expect someone to return to daily activities immediately after suffering a broken limb, heartbroken people are expected to function normally in their lives, despite the emotional pain they feel. Now psychologist Guy Winch imagines how different things would be if we paid more attention to this unique emotion - if only we can understand how heartbreak works, we can begin to fix it.

Watched the author give a TED talk which I found useful but this goes into much more detail

The author provides thoughtful, insightful, sympathetic but importantly instructive guidance to those trying to resolve difficult emotional situations.

I wish I hadn’t had to find this book but it has been a help.
