I've just had my heart badly broken and feel the worst I ever have, can anyone recommend a bookI should read?

Be it self help or fiction I dont mind once its widely available. Is there a book out there that got you yhrough a hard time

Answer:
Just spend time with friends and travel somewhere exotic and laugh often.
You should sit down with a book which you enjoy the most, an old classic. But remember that you must just go on with life, and let it lead you, don't let the broken heart overwhelm you.
Read The Long Walk To Freedom by Nelson Mandela. After reading all 751 pages you will feel a lot better. I guarantee it'll openyour eyes to what really happened to the A.N.C. or Mr Nice by Howard Marks.it's all about Smuggling. Both books are based on real accounts.
The best book I have ever read, bar none, was from Dr. Viktor Frankl titled "Man's Search for Meaning". I prefer the 1997 edition (there are many as this was originally written many decades ago). This is very inexpensive and due to the fact that it is one of the best books ever written it is readily available. The dr was a prisoner of war during the holocaust and was a prisoner in Auschwitz. He tells part of this story and then adds stories about his patients after his release many years later. It begins as a difficult read due to what he had to go through, but stick with it. It has opened my eyes to so many things.
I'd recommend A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson and Love is Letting Go of Fear by Jerry Jampolsky. Both are very readable and not preachy like some books I've read before. These two books invite you to see a certain point of view, but they do NOT tell you how to act or not to act. Yes, it does hurt a lot to have your heart broken, but aside from your broken heart, you also might have other issues that you might benefit from looking at. I know I did, and these books made all of the difference for me, not just for relationships but for my life in general. I'd also recommend The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran, very beautiful poetry about every subject in human life, yes, including love and the good and bad parts of it. I'll close with the words of Lee Ann Womack's "I Hope You Dance" which talks about taking a chance on love and life; even if you fall down sometimes, you're still better off than if you never danced at all. Life is worth the risk, so don't hold back for fear of getting your heart broken.

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty-handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance, I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Livin' might mean takin' chances, but they're worth takin'
Lovin' might be a mistake, but it's worth makin'
Don't let some hell-bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to sellin' out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I hope you dance, I hope you dance
I hope you dance, I hope you dance
(Time is a wheel in constant motion, always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years
And wonder, where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

Dance, I hope you dance
I hope you dance, I hope you dance
I hope you dance, I hope you dance
(Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along
Tell me who wants to look back on their years
And wonder where those years have gone)

Best wishes, and you're welcome to email me back if you want further insight. Peace.
The first book that comes to mind is "Veronica Decides To Die", by Paulo Coelho. Now I don't really like Coelho, but this book is truly a revelation.

Veronica, having decided that she doesn't belong in this world and there's nothing worth living for, attempts to commit suicide. When she wakes up, she's in an institution, where they inform her she got her wish even though they saved her, since the attempt caused such damage to her heart that she only has 5 days left in this life. It's during those 5 days that she finally lets herself live and realizes what being here is about...

It's an exceptional book. It's rather small (300 pages, big letters), but I'm thinking it's what you need right now.
