There's a fine line between house guest and house pest, your best friend and your worst enemy, and it's important to know when those relationships have passed the point of no return. These platonic relationships are significant, often taking up more time both literally and emotionally, than romantic ones. So what happens when the honeymoon is over and these relationships turn sour? We've been given an arsenal of advice to help navigate the romantic break up, and yet, no one has told us how to break up with those other people in our lives - until now!
Delivering a mix of humor and prescriptive advice, Jodyne Speyer has arrived to put us out of our misery, and teach us how to speak up, once and for all. Dump 'Em gives us all the tools to recognize and end unwanted relationships, guiding us with humor and insight every step of the way - from recognizing the warning signs of when a break up is in order, to what to say (and what not to say) when the dumping gets tough. It teaches us to conquer our fear of confrontation, and master the art of the tactful, peaceful and permanent break up.
Each chapter of Dump 'Em features useful facts, tips, and anecdotes, and includes Q & A's with experts such as trainer Bob Harper from "The Biggest Loser", funny man Adam Carolla, high profile attorney Thomas Mesereau (who represented Michael Jackson and Robert Blake) and everyone's favorite houseguest, Kato Kaelin.
