    Story
    (175)

    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.

    Susan K Treiman says: "Wonderful, inspiring, insightful"
    "Powerful and direct advice that worked 4 me...."

    Would you consider the audio edition of This Is How to be better than the print version?

    The audio version is so much more compelling and inspirational than the print version. A night and day difference.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Burroughs offers insights to problems from real life experiences that so many people experience everyday. He presents ideas in a fresh manner that are instantly usable. I really admire his courage to reveal so much without the stain of self pity.


    What about Augusten Burroughs’s performance did you like?

    Burroughs is unflinching and direct when he addresses problems. Nothing is sugar coated.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Burroughs thoughtful analysis of a grim situation and declaring with great compassion that there is another way to solve a problem or deal with a tough uncomfortable moment in life. A game changer for me and those I've recommended the audio version to as a gift. That life really is incredible miracle and you are a part of that miracle....
