#1 New York Times Bestseller
In Furiously Happy, a humor memoir tinged with just enough tragedy and pathos to make it worthwhile, Jenny Lawson examines her own experience with severe depression and a host of other conditions, and explains how it has led her to live life to the fullest:
"I've often thought that people with severe depression have developed such a well for experiencing extreme emotion that they might be able to experience extreme joy in a way that ‘normal people' also might never understand. And that's what Furiously Happy is all about."
Jenny’s readings are standing room only, with fans lining up to have Jenny sign their bottles of Xanax or Prozac as often as they are to have her sign their books. Furiously Happy appeals to Jenny's core fan base but also transcends it. There are so many people out there struggling with depression and mental illness, either themselves or someone in their family―and in Furiously Happy they will find a member of their tribe offering up an uplifting message (via a taxidermied roadkill raccoon). Let's Pretend This Never Happened ostensibly was about embracing your own weirdness, but deep down it was about family. Furiously Happy is about depression and mental illness, but deep down it's about joy―and who doesn't want a bit more of that?

Finally I get this ebook, thanks for all these Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things I can get now!
I was suspicious at first when I got redirected to the membership site. Now I'm really excited I found this online library....many thanks Kisses
I did not think that this would work, my best friend showed me this website, and it does! I get my most wanted eBook
I found out about Playster in the New York times and I'm very happy about it: “One of the newest contenders in the crowded field, a company based in Montreal called Playster, offers music, games, TV shows, movies and e-books through its service. Playster recently struck a deal with HarperCollins to include 14,000 backlist books in its service.”
My friends are so mad that they do not know how I have all the high quality ebook which they do not!
I stumbled upon Playster 2 months ago. I've upgraded to a premium membership already. The platform now carries audiobooks from: Simon & Schuster, Macmillan, HarperCollins UK, Recorded Books, Tantor, and Highbridge. HarperCollins US titles are already in the library. Great service.
so many fake sites. this is the first one which worked! Many thanks
wtffff i do not understand this!

Sometimes We Fly
This is definitely a one of a kind book. I have never read anything like this before and I enjoyed every second of it. I felt like I had found someone who FINALLY spoke the same mental language! The random ramblings, the random connections between things that normally aren't connected, the random reactions, the extra random everything. Everything she said made so much sense to me and I found myself constantly thinking "oh wow, that's totally me" or "I would say something like that". I don't find myself usually connecting with authors in such a personal way. Even with memoirs or other sorts of more personal writing, I've never encountered an author putting so much of their bare, unpolished soul out into the open.
The organization of the book is very atypical and seemingly disorganized, but as you are reading it, you pick up the flow of it. This book is a perfect example that books do not have to follow the classical outline. Writing doesn't need to fall within certain parameters in order to be enjoyed and understood. Writing is flexible, dynamic, and not stringent in form; Jenny Lawson's writing is a perfect example of an author breaking from the mold.
Although this book is geared towards an audience that may be experiencing similar mental health issues as the author, it is a book that should be read by all. Lawson's very honest explanation of her own harrowing journey with learning to live with her diseases is very insightful. Most importantly, she normalizes them and makes you see that having a mental illness does not make you abnormal; just means sometimes you have less spoons than everyone else.
I promise that she also gives you the details into why there is raccoon on the cover of her book and you will not be disappointed.
A favorite quote from the book:
"Ground zero is where the normal people live their lives, but not us. We live in the negatives so often that we begin to understand that life when the sun shines should be lived full throttle, soaring. The invisible tether that binds the normal people on their steady course doesn't hold us in the same way. Sometimes we walk in sunlight with everyone else. Sometimes we live underwater and fight and grow. And sometimes...sometimes we fly" (Lawson. 325).

So funny it hurts
By A. Silberman
Jenny shares her problems and struggles in such a way that it makes my own problems worse. What do I mean? Well, I have cancer in my abdomen, and it hurts like hell to laugh. This book is so funny I couldn't stop myself. So it caused me a lot of pain.
Aside from being hilarious, she shares her struggle with depression in a very real way. Despite my many other issues, depression is not one of them, but I feel like I understand it better, thanks to Jenny. It's hard to give a review of this book as it's basically just train of thought stories with a focus on living with and overcoming depression. It's hopeful and hilarious, the two most important H's.
This book is for....everybody. I can't imagine anybody not liking it. Especially her conversations with Victor, they are too delicious for words.

So many days and nights ...
So many of us go down this road of mental illness and we march silently, alone. But we don't have to. We should speak up and out and read these books with their stories to each other...and laugh and cry and share our lives with each other. We should be each other's Victor.
This book was worth every cent and minute spent on it!
