Editorial Reviews

Review

“The last self-help book you'll ever read.” ―Janice Harper, The Huffington Post

“Hilarious and searingly straight forward…Burroughs turns the self-help genre upside-down.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Fans of the author's massively popular confessional memoirs will likely agree with that statement, and all of the wisdom he dispenses in his new book -- delivered with the dark, acidic humor we've come to expect -- is certainly well-earned.” ―The Boston Globe
