    A hilarious, life-saving book.

    This is such an important, hilarious book. Lawson is a champion for those who live with mental illness, and a vital bridge for those who love someone who lives with the same. I think Furiously Happy is a more mature book than Let's Pretend this Never Happened; don't get me wrong, it's still absolutely ridiculous and silly and wonderful in every way you want it to be (nearly died laughing at the bit about the Japanese toilet), but her focus here really is to lift up those who need it most. She says it best: "Be bizarre. Be weird. Be proud of the uniquely beautiful way that you are broken."

    Good read

    I found this to be a very open and brave look at Jenny's struggle with anxiety and depression. I only felt that it was too long for the content that was provided. I feel some of it read like blog entries that could have just stayed as a blog entry. I do admire her opening up to the world about how hard life is for her in her mind. It will definitely help those who have their own struggles relate to her and not feel they are alone.

    Thank you

    I laughed out loud. I met myself hiding amid the dust balls in my closet with my cat. This is great.

    I don't get the love for this book

    I was really keen on this book after reading reviews. I wanted to like it and I tried and tried and then finally just tried to get through it. I hadn't read her first and I read that it was better. This was so random and scattered and while semi humerous I found it was really more weird and obnoxious than funny or clever. I constantly felt like I was waiting for the epiphany or advice amongst all the ramblings and silly stories...but it never came. I love what she is doing to shed light on mental illness but this book IMO doesn't make you feel empowered at all

    Aggressively Thankful

    I very much enjoyed this book. It wasn't as entertaining as Jenny Lawson's first book, but I love the fact that it addresses all sides of depression and anxiety. It is nice to not be alone in feeling so low at times. Jenny Lawson has created this amazing welcoming community online and on paper (or kobos). For this we are eternally grateful.
