How To Break Bad News: Greetings From The Dark Side

What's it about?

"We all have a friend in our group that nobody really likes. Everyone knows someone in a dead end relationship they’d like to end easily. Every office has an employee who won’t stop talking about travelling the world.

In How To Break the Bad News ... The Easy Way, comedian Jarlath Regan presents the perfect way to tell that friend, ‘Nobody likes you’, to inform that clingy boyfriend that, ‘It’s over’; or to break it to that office worker that they’re fired. These are special occasions and these are things that are too difficult to say out loud even though we want to.

Jarlath's winning greeting card ideas, filled with humour and straight-talking advice, will mean you'll never be stuck for words again."

The book has been voted 5.0 out of 5 stars by Amazon users.
