The abusive, strange and frightening events of Augusten Burroughs's past didn't ruin the tell-all memoirist's sense of humor. Running with Scissors and Dry proved Burroughs had the right outlook to score a laugh from his suffering; his self-help book, This Is How, hopes others can glean practical tips from the same difficulties.
