This is not how

This Is How: Proven Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decrepitude & More. For Young and Old Alike.This Is How: Proven Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decrepitude & More. For Young and Old Alike. by Augusten Burroughs

My rating: 2 of 5 stars


Disappointing. Augusten Burroughs has had an unorthodox and at times difficult life and he seems a perfect candidate to provide advice on how to live through it all. And this book does have some useful advice, but it's too much of that and a bit preachy. It's best when it provides autobiographical stories, some funny, some sad, some inspiring, that haven't appeared elsewhere and relating those to his advice. Otherwise, it's a bit humorless and tough-going.
