Publisher's Summary

Next to the death of a loved one, the ending of a relationship is the most painful experience most people will ever go through. Coming Apart is a first aid kit for getting through the ending. It is a tool that will enable you to live through the end of your relationship with your self-esteem intact.

Originally published in 1987 and continuously in print since then, Coming Apart has been an important resource for hundreds of thousands of people experiencing the pain and stress of a breakup. This new edition features a foreword by Katherine Woodward Thomas, author of Conscious Uncoupling.

Daphne Rose Kingma, the undisputed expert on matters of the heart, explores the critical facets of relationship breakdowns: 

  • Love myths: why we are really in relationships
  • The life span of love
  • How to get through the ending
  • How to create a personal workbook for finding resolution

Time does a lot to heal our broken hearts, but really understanding what transpired in each of our relationships is what allows us to finally let go and move on.

Narrator sounds so nasally and whiny.

it was so annoyingly repetitive. seriously giving the same examples over and over and over again in different ways without a single pause. just filler bs. worst was that the narrator was pretending to be that person complaining so you literally were listening to her whine in different ways over and over again. unbearable

what a wonderful divorce guide!

having gone through a divorce and read many other books at the time, I think this book is a kind guide to understand what happens. The author has a real sense of what needs to happen and being in the last stages of the grief I found it compelling and refreshing.

Didn’t really help me.

I frequently found myself thinking what the hell? This book basically just tells you that your relationship is over and to not waste your time trying to work on it.

Breaking up with someone was always hard for me to do. Now I know why and how to do
it sooner. The questions are perfect tools for me to use. Very good read. I learned a lot about myself. Thank you.

Was a great help!

Definitely helped with my breakup! I went through this book over a couple of weeks and it really helped me get through especially since I was still having to live with my ex for a short time. It helped me get back to myself afterwards!

If you’re going through separation

This is a good book to read, it mostly goes through the grieving process and helps you remember the feelings you may be having are normal and that in the end a learning process and a new chapter in life starts.
A lot is stuff people tell you all the time but it’s still nice when you don’t wanna tire out people with your story and just need someone to talk to you and remind you you’re not alone in all the stages.

Makes me fairly happy not to have married!

This book was very helpful in Daphne's expression of the understanding and open truth awareness needed in almost any relationship. I am anxious to read her other books now!

Good book

I really enjoyed this book. Even found one story that is 100% same like I had in the past. Many new things to learn and reconsider.
