Augusten Burroughs- Psychotherapist?(How to…By Augusten Burroughs)

Augusten Burroughs as a psychotherapist? On the sarcastic side? Yes, please. Now you have it! This book- every chapter is a how-to on overcoming serious issues: ie molestation, grief, disease, etc. Then there’s the sarcastic side(in the usage of words like spinsterhood and lushery. Then again, maybe those words do exist?). However, having read all of his other books, this one is more serious. As if Mr. Burroughs really would like to help us out with such things. I really enjoyed this book- both the way he addresses things with not only his own experience, but with an attempt at logic while throwing in his trademark humor. You will enjoy it. I give it 4 out of 5. It’s a quick read, and something that anyone with a sense of humor will appreciate.
