I liked this book just as much as 'Running With Scissors,' but I didn't find it as funny or as outrageous and interesting. It definitely had more heart-breaking moments, more moments where my heart felt anguished and I was rooting for him or crying for him. I could definitely relate to some of what he was talking about, as I used to work with substance abusers in outpatient treatment. It gave me more insight seeing an addict write about his experience in his own words. If you're going to read this book, it's a good idea to read 'Running with Scissors' first -- it gives the background of what got Augusten where he is in this book.
