"In Furiously Happy, #1 New York Times bestselling author Jenny Lawson explores her lifelong battle with mental illness. A hysterical, ridiculous book about crippling depression and anxiety? That sounds like a terrible idea. But terrible ideas are what Jenny does best.As Jenny says: "Some people might think that being 'furiously happy' is just an excuse to be stupid and irresponsible and invite a herd of kangaroos over to your house without telling your husband first because you suspect he would say no since he's never particularly liked kangaroos. And that would be ridiculous because no one would invite a herd of kangaroos into their house. Two is the limit. I speak from personal experience. My husband says that none is the new limit. I say he should have been clearer about that before I rented all those kangaroos. "Most of my favorite people are dangerously fucked-up but you'd never guess because we've learned to bare it so honestly that it becomes the new normal. Like John Hughes wrote in The Breakfast Club, 'We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it.' Except go back and cross out the word 'hiding.'"Furiously Happy is about "taking those moments when things are fine and making them amazing, because those moments are what make us who we are, and they're the same moments we take into battle with us when our brains declare war on our very existence. It's the difference between "surviving life" and "living life". It's the difference between "taking a shower" and "teaching your monkey butler how to shampoo your hair." It's the difference between being "sane" and being "furiously happy."Lawson is beloved around the world for her inimitable humor and honesty, and in Furiously Happy, she is at her snort-inducing funniest. This is a book about embracing everything that makes us who we are - the beautiful and the flawed - and then using it to find joy in fantastic and outrageous ways. Because as Jenny's mom says, "Maybe 'crazy' isn't so bad after all." Sometimes crazy is just right"--… (lisätietoja)

This is a book about funny happenings in the author's life, some of which are extremely funny and had me laughing out loud. Interjected throughout the book, however, are serious stories dealing with mental illness, anxiety, and depression that the author deals with in her life. Jenny Lawson exposes details of her illnesses because many people who have followed her blog also have the same issues and feelings and appreciate her advice.
I highly recommend listening to it as an audiobook since it is read by the author. These are her words and experiences and therefore, her humor and sincerity is genuine and really comes through in the book.

Snortingly funny essays, interspersed with some more somber pieces about depression, anxiety disorders, and Jenny’s other mental and physical disorders. But some of the pieces about mental disorders are also snortingly funny. If you’re familiar with The Bloggess, you know what to expect. ( )

This is a really good, really important book. Anyone struggling with mental issues (and in this pandemic, who among us isn't?) should give this one a try.

There is a chapter where the author describes her battles with self harm. She provides a warning at the start of that chapter, so anyone who needs to can skip it. ( )

nonfic: humor/mental illness. This got lots of laughs from me (and seriousness for the serious bits). ( )

There was a lot of great stuff in this book. Plenty of insightful discussions about mental illness, which is something that I've struggled with most of my life - not to the degree of the author but I could relate to some aspects of what she had to say. Most of the book is Lawson telling stories and sharing stream of consciousness essays. While I definitely enjoyed her sense of humor and found some of the stories interesting, her voice and repetitive nature of the jokes made the last half or so of the book sort of painful.

I think I would have enjoyed this one much more if I had limited myself to something like 30 minute sessions. Or I could be fooling myself and would have eventually just put it in the DNF pile. I got dangerously close to putting it there anyway but I'm determined to keep my total books completed numbers as high as possible this year. I WILL MAKE MY GOAL!

If you share a twisted sense of humor and love of foul language with the author, and me, and are interested in reading the book, I suggest trying a chapter or two a day.

I went back and forth between 2.5 and 3 stars. I decided on three because I really did laugh out loud a few times and some of her stories were very good. I was just too much of the same thing over and over to make it completely enjoyable for me. ( )

This book is dedicated to my daughter, the giggling witness to the strange and wonderful world her family has created out of insanity (both real and hyperbolic).

God help us when she's old enough to write her own memoir.
