7 Books to Read With a Broken Heart
To Help You Recognize: You're So Not Alone
As editor of The New York Times' "Modern Love" column, Daniel Jones has nine years of experience in others' love and loss and, in this engaging summary of his findings, he examines all the different forms our search for happiness with another human being can take. Skip the bits about the lucky few with destruction-proof relationships, and focus on the much more common tales of misunderstanding, wasted effort, downright deception and sheer bad luck—some of which manage to work out in the end! One of Jones' best insights: "Vulnerability is what love is all about...Only when we open ourselves to the possibility of loss can we allow for the possibility of love."
