A lot of you have asked me for a Magic of Making Up review. You’ve asked about various products out there that claim to help you get back together with your ex in the shortest amount of time possible, but the Magic of Making Up is by far the most requested review of the bunch. The short version (as my Magic of Making Up review below will get into some hefty detail discussing) is that I love it. And I usually hate products like this.
Note: This is a review for TW Jackson’s The Magic of Making Up. I do make a commission if you buy the product through one of the links in this Magic of Making Up review, but I would not recommend it if I didn’t think it would seriously help you.
The Magic of Making Up Review That I Almost Didn’t Write
I usually hate ebooks written about relationship advice. I’ve only seen a handful of them in my life that are worth the money the “expert” charges for them. Most boil down to common sense (and some of it is flat out BAD advice from my experience), and their wild claims about helping you get your ex back in five days or less are nonsense. This Magic of Making Up review, surprisingly enough, calls out an exception to my rule. TW Jackson has written a book with solid advice that will really help you win back your ex AFTER walking you through the process of deciding whether or not that’s even the right move for you.

Magic of Making Up Review: Magic of Making Up Overview and Contents
At this point in my Magic of Making Up review, I think it’s important to go over in some hefty detail what the book contains, chapter by chapter. Overall, The Magic of Making Up is a 62 page ebook with 8 chapters, and it sells for $39. The sixth chapter is the one most focused on the specifics of getting back together with your ex, but the others all detail the context that has to be right for it to work. He discusses everything from figuring out why your breakup happened, what you should (and more importantly SHOULDN’T) do right away, what steps to take over the next couple months, how to decide whether you even want to get back together, and how to make it happen if you do. Check out the breakdown:
The Magic of Making Up Chapter 1: Understanding Why Your Relationship Ended (And Why It’s Not Over Just Yet)
The first chapter of TW Jackson’s book is all about relationships and how they can go wrong. He talks about major differences between men and women and what they want from relationships (this isn’t going to be accurate for every person on the planet, but overall men and women DO want different things from their partners). He talks about little things like nagging (and the surprising reason that this causes men to run from relationships) all the way to cheating—and he has a way different perspective on this than you would think.
The Magic of Making Up Chapter 2: Don’t Panic – Your Key to Winning Back Their Love (Getting Your Head On Straight)
The second chapter in The Magic of Making Up is focused on getting control over yourself. This is something I personally advocate a lot if you’re trying to get your ex boyfriend or girlfriend back, since your emotions can cause you to do a lot of VERY unproductive things and you can drive them away forever. He covers the reason for that panic you feel after a breakup, why trying to show the other person how much you care about them (smothering them with kindness and affection) is a BAD idea, and what to do instead.
For instance, it’s a REALLY bad idea to even TALK to your ex for a whole month. In The Magic of Making Up, TW Jackson discusses what you should do if you see them in the meantime (say, at work or school) and what you should do instead of calling them at 3:00 in the morning when you’re a little drunk.
He also gives his Fast Forward Technique, which is a five-step technique to getting over emotional pain. It involves focusing on your heartache and asking yourself questions about it. It really helps and I’ve used it myself. Check out a shortened version of it here:
The Magic of Making Up Chapter 3: Removing the Splinter in Your Relationship (Where Do You Stand?)
This chapter is all about pinpointing your relationship problems and thinking about fixing them. You’ll make a comprehensive list of positives and negatives about your relationship, learn how to stop feeling desperate to get back together with your ex, and decide whether or not it’s even worth it to you. This is the stage where you “wake up” a little bit and see past the immediate desperation to figure out whether you even want to get your ex back in the first place.
There are also some really important notes in this section about cheating—the reasons people do it, the reasons people hate it, and how to get past it in your relationship.
The Magic of Making Up Chapter 4: Re-Igniting the Spark of Passion and Desire (The Plan)
Despite the title, this chapter of The Magic of Making Up is all about you and making your life great again. This is another thing that most “experts” in the relationship field gloss over, but I think it’s some of the most important advice in the book. The absolute most important thing to do in the midst of a breakup is to CHANGE.
TW Jackson discusses everything about changing your life in this section, from the benefit of changing your appearance (it’s all about a little psychological trickery, but don’t let that scare you) and 6 ways to go about it, to fixing your physical and mental health. He gives comprehensive exercise and diet advice for getting past your grief, as well as discussing some very important tips for keeping above that black hole of depression that can threaten to swallow you up after a nasty breakup.
The Magic of Making Up Chapter 5: Dates and Lovers – How Other People Can Actually Bring You Back Together With Your Ex
This section covers a counter intuitive fact: dating other people is one of the fastest ways to get back together with an ex. He covers everything you need to know, from why it works to how to get dates, tips while out on your dates, and how to handle your ex dating someone else (which you may very well have to deal with).
The Magic of Making Up Chapter 6: Easing Back Into Your Relationship to Solidify Your Love
Finally, this is the section that details what you need to do to get back together with your ex now that you’ve set the context with what you’ve done in previous chapters. He goes over the first phone call (the attitude, the timing, and what you should never do—including leaving a voice mail!), how to get a first meeting with him or her, how long to spend in the first meeting, what to avoid discussing or doing, and how to end the first date so that she’ll be waiting for another one (hint: you’re going to make her wonder if you even want another date).
He also covers what to do at any point if it all goes wrong and you’re heading down a tailspin into misery all over again. If it’s still worth it to you to keep going, Jackson covers ways to turn it around.
The Magic of Making Up Chapter 7:Maintaining the Fun and Love Without Dredging Up Old Wounds and Arguments
Now you’re back together, and you need to avoid the same pitfalls that killed the relationship in the first place. In this section, TW Jackson gives you tips on adding fun and adventure, letting go of the past, and handling future disagreements. He covers forgiveness in a large amount of detail here, and it’s as important as the other stuff so be sure not to skim this section.
The Magic of Making Up Chapter 8: When Your Relationship Can’t Be Saved – Moving On With Grace
Worst case scenario, your relationship can’t or won’t (refusal on their end) be saved. Here, TW Jackson talks about how to handle that, how to move on, and even how to increase the possibility of turning it around. You will more than likely not even need this section, but it’s here just in case.
Magic of Making Up Review: Bonuses and One Time Offer
One Time Offer: Audio Version of The Magic of Making Up
When you purchase The Magic of Making Up, TW Jackson will offer you a chance to get the audio version of his book for $17. I usually don’t recommend upsells and you certainly don’t need to spend more money to make the system work, but if you are on the road enough that you would like to listen to the book in your car instead of taking up your time at home, this is definitely for you.
Bonus: Mind Magic
Mind Magic is a 23 page ebook that’s packed full of some of the sneakiest psychological tactics I’ve ever seen. Here are just a few:
- The Magic Second Chance Letter. This a letter you can send to your ex REGARDLESS of how badly you’ve messed things up, with certain tricks that guaranteed it gets read and thought about. I can’t guarantee it will fix things, but it will most likely open the door.
- How To Get Anyone To Respond To Your Call Or Text Message. Most people phrase their calls and text messages in ways that seem like they’re obviously begging for a response. TW Jackson has a different approach, that piques their curiosity and almost guarantees that they will call you back.
- The Monkey Fist. This is a secret method that will get anyone to do just about anything if you give it enough time. Here’s a hint: the U.S. government uses it to get us to hand over a massive chunk of our paychecks every few weeks without even getting angry.
Bonus: Clean Slate Method
This is a 7 page ebook bundled with The Magic of Making Up ebook that is focused on creating the perfect apology in multiple stages. If you really messed up somewhere along the way, you may really need this method. I haven’t tried it myself, but I fully believe that it will work.
Bonus: Boost Your Metabolism
This works great to boost the advice in chapter 4 about physical health. If you have any interest at all in losing weight, this 62 page ebook will show you how to increase your metabolism through food and lifestyle changes. A lot of these were very surprising to me and I’m sure they will be to you as well.
Magic of Making Up Review Conclusion
I whole-heartedly recommend this ebook, and I don’t do that lightly. This is solid information that you really can’t find anywhere else. Even though TW Jackson claims that he is no expert, the Magic of Making Up proves otherwise as far as I’m concerned. If you’re trying to get your ex back, this is the way to go.
