How to Fix a Broken Heart is a nonfiction book about heartbreak and the effects of heartbreak. How to Fix a Broken Heart contains a lot of research and examples, which makes the book clearer and easier to understand. This book is written by a psychologist and because of that, there’s a good and thorough explanation of heartbreak.

How to Fix a Broken Heart is such an interesting book about mental health. I have experienced my fair share of heartbreak and a lot of people thought I was overreacting. I love that Guy Winch says that you cannot overreact because heartbreak, whether over a person or over a pet, is something real and something we need to acknowledge. 

How to Fix a Broken Heart is the perfect read when you want to discover more about heartbreak. This book gives us the ugly truths about heartbreak and what we actually should do in order to be free from heartbreak. I couldn’t stop reading How to Fix a Broken Heart because it was so well written with good examples and an interesting research.

There were times that I was speechless when I figured out that for example that love is like an addiction and when we are without the person we love (the drug) we think a lot about the person (the drug) and start feeling these cravings for him or her and it makes us lose our sleep and our appetite, it causes anxiety, … (This is from a study of the brain which revealed that loving someone activates both brain structures that are associated with addiction.) If you think about it, it definitely is like that and it’s kind of scary.

How to Fix a Broken Heart is definitely a recommendation because the book is just so interesting and hard to put down!
