Description



About the Book



From the #1 "New York Times"-bestselling author of "Running With Scissors" comes a groundbreaking book that will challenge the concept of Oself-help.O



Book Synopsis



From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Running With Scissors comes a groundbreaking book by Augusten Burroughs that explores how to survive what you think you can't.

If you're fat and fail every diet, if you're thin but can't get thin enough, if you lose your job, if your child dies, if you are diagnosed with cancer, if you always end up with exactly the wrong kind of person, if you always end up alone, if you can't get over the past, if your parents are insane and ruining your life, if you really and truly wish you were dead, if you feel like it's your destiny to be a star, if you believe life has a grudge against you, if you don't want to have sex with your spouse and don't know why, if you feel so ashamed, if you're lost in life, if you have ever wondered, How am I supposed to survive this?

This is How.



Review Quotes



"The last self-help book you'll ever read." --Janice Harper, The Huffington Post

"Hilarious and searingly straight forward...Burroughs turns the self-help genre upside-down." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Fans of the author's massively popular confessional memoirs will likely agree with that statement, and all of the wisdom he dispenses in his new book -- delivered with the dark, acidic humor we've come to expect -- is certainly well-earned." --The Boston Globe
