Publisher's Summary

Preview:

Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things is a series of essays that are hysterically funny and poignant at the same time. The author, Jenny Lawson, suffers from clinical depression, an anxiety disorder, an impulse control disorder, avoidant personality disorder, insomnia, and rheumatoid arthritis among other illnesses. As a result of her illnesses, she is chronically depressed. She experiences serious lows, such as days she cannot get out of bed, and she has thoughts of suicide. After one particularly bad period, she decided to be "furiously happy" to counter the sadness. Within a few hours of using #FuriouslyHappy, Larson's many Twitter followers got behind her idea, and the hashtag began trending....

Mistake

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I thought this would actually be a really funny, deep book , but turns out it was more of an ad (?) for the author than a story. I did not notice it only went for 20 min, and was quite surprised when the narrator started reading out the titles of the chapters. And that was pretty much the whole book, with some key facts thrown in.
I would like my credit back if that were possible.

Any additional comments?

Is there an actual BOOK?

Not what was expected

This is a summary and is not directly related to the book. Although it masquerades as being read by Jenny Lawson, it is not, nor is it authorised by her. This will not give you the same experience as the actual novel. I am very disappointed that Jenny’s book is not available through audible.

What in the hell was that??!!

THIS IS NOT THE FULL BOOK! This is some weird description of the book, read by a monotone man.

Not the book and a waste of time

I bought without reading the whole description, don't make my mistake, pointless bullet points sounds like it is read by a machine?
