Publisher's Summary

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 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 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.
