From the bestselling gay author of Running With Scissors comes a groundbreaking book that explores how to survive the "un-survivable" and will dismantle your notion of self-help books, while simulatneously making you laugh out loud!
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 mother's 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 and a fulfilling relationship 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 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 tell-it-like-it-is candour, this is a book that will dispense advice, sympathy, a bitch slap and a belly laugh. But more than anything else, it will give you permission to feel like crap as you acknowledge that sometimes, when you're going through hell, the best way is to go straight through it!
