As someone who has read all of Augusten Burroughs books and loved his style and wry observations, this mess came as a shock. It's bad beyond belief, and seems to be written by someone other than the careful and witty author we've come to know. Mr. Burrough's self-pitying has lost its charm. Perhaps he's tapped dry his own life as his major source of literary acumen. He definitely needs to get a grip. Hopefully, he will move on to greener fields. His sharp sense of human frailties needs new targets. His family deserves a rest.

this book is perfect, beautiful...i had a hard time with the first few minutes because it's not what i expected - but, i continued on an was mesmerized.
try his brother's book: "look me in the eye" if you liked "wolf at the table". it will fill some of the gaps.
i hope that if the author himself reads any of these reviews he can see that he has at least touched one reader with the audio version, and certainly the book itself.
