about

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.

AUGUSTEN BURROUGHS is the number one New York Times bestselling author of A Wolf At The Table, Possible Side Effects, Magical Thinking, Dry, Running with Scissors, and Sellevision. He lives in Manhattan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Self Help Book for people who hate self help books This had a very interesting approach which let me take my guard down. I found it often made me think about things in a new light. It's a book I'm glad to own so I can re-read it from time to time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I gift this book to friends I have read this book a few times and always find something new in it. The real, honest, sometimes harsh advice written in these pages gives hope without pity and offers the kind of 'self-help' that reminds us we are owed nothing but deserve everything we are willing to work towards and forgive ourselves for.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing I bought this book not for help but for more of an insight on certain factors in my life. This was the book I was looking for. It's amazing! It touches a little on every major subject but it also doesn't tell you that you should feel sorry for yourself. Augusten Burroughs did a wonderful job explaining and giving tips to help you though your issue.
