"As Jenny Lawson's hundreds of thousands of fans know, she suffers from depression. In Broken (in the best possible way), she explores her experimental treatment of transcranial magnetic stimulation with brutal honesty. But also with brutal humor: "People do different things to distract themselves during each treatment. I embroider. It feels fitting. I'm being magnetically stabbed in the head thousands of times as I'm stabbing the embroidery myself. I don't embroider the same patterns my grandmother did. I embroider girls with octopus faces, David Bowie, a flowery bouquet with FUCK YES written in the middle. They let you do anything as long as it's 'positive.'" Jenny discusses the frustration of dealing with her insurance company in "An Open Letter to My Insurance Company," which should be an anthem for anyone who has ever had to call their insurance company to try and get a claim covered. On the lighter side, she tackles such timelessly debated questions as "How do dogs know they have penises?" We see how her vacuum cleaner almost set her house on fire, how she was attacked by three bears, business ideas she wants to pitch to Shark Tank, and why she can never go back to the post office. Of course, Jenny's long-suffering husband Victor-the Ricky to Jenny's Lucille Ball-is present throughout. A treat for Jenny Lawson's already existing fans, and destined to convert new ones, Broken is a beacon of hope and a wellspring of laughter"--… (més)

As with every Jenny Lawson book, this lived up to my high expectations. There were chapters that were highly personal, then others that were extremely funny and also very relatable. That is her trademark: she’s funny and relatable. The biggest differences from her previous books (if you have read any of them) are that Lawson has now become a lot more well-known, she’s a parent of a teenager, and her journey to ‘fix’ her depression and anxiety has gone through many twists and turns. Overall, a great Jenny Lawson read! ( )

A stream of consciousness book focusing on the struggles of depression and other challenges. It had some moments that made me laugh, but overall I felt this book was okay. I would recommend it to anyone who feels alone with their struggles of mental illness or for someone who is trying to understand what these challenges can feel like for some people. ( )

Wonderful book. I underlined a lot that resonated with my own life. Her stories made me grateful for the parts that we do not share...there but for the grace of.... ( )

Maybe it's just because of my current emotional state, but this book was everything I needed and more. Humorous and heartwarming and so relatable ( )

Dedicated to my husband, without whom this book would not exist. Mainly because he would not quit yelling at me to stop binge-watching Netflix and get some fucking work done.

But also because he's funnier than I am in person, gives me incredible material, and loves me even when I don't always love myself. Thanks, mister.

I'm not the only one you've done this to. You've left thousands of people alone and desperate and untreated. You have killed people we love, with neglect or indifference. You deny mercy and pain and humanity. I'm not even one of the worst cases. My problems with you are typical. And that makes it even worse.
You are standing in the way of the health and happiness of so many of us and you are making money while standing on our backs and telling us how much we don't need the things that keep us alive. But I am still alive. In spite of you.
