Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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 aupposed to survive this?
 
This is How.

Synopsis:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Running With Scissors comes a groundbreaking book that explores how to survive the "un-survivable" and will challenge your notion of self-help books
 
To say that Augusten Burroughs has lived an unusual life is an understatement.  From having no formal education past third grade and being raised by his mothers psychiatrist in the seventies to enjoying one of the most successful advertising careers of the eighties to experiencing a spectacular downfall and rehab stint in the nineties to having a number one bestselling writing career in the new millennium, Burroughs has faced humiliation, transformation and everything in between.  This Is How is his no-holds-barred book of advice on topics as varied as:

·         How to feel like crap

·         How to ride an elevator

·         How to be thin

·         How to be fat

·         How to find love

·         How to feel sorry for yourself

·         How to get the job

·         How to end your life

·         How to remain unhealed

·         How to finish your drink

·         How to regret as little as possible

·         And much more

Told with Burroughs's unique voice, black humor, and in-your-face advice, This is How is Running With Scissors—with recipes.
