From his highly unconventional childhood to addiction in adulthood, Augusten Burroughs has spent his life fixing his brain. Now that he's a sober and wildly successful writer, he wants to show you how it is done with "This Is How with Augusten Burroughs," a six-week series airing on SiriusXM. Much like Augusten's book "This Is How" (St. Martin's Press), the series is a decidedly unorthodox take on self-help advice. Augusten peeks under the mental hood and breaks down topics including the "lie" of happiness, the luxury of having good parents, the way not to drink, and the way to create a fulfilling life on your own terms with an eclectic lineup of notable guests.
