If there were a book that I would recommend for mental illness, it would definitely be this one.
Usually, many people are concerned with the fact that mental illness isn’t talked about enough, and how we don’t know a lot about it. And I feel that it’s true.
So even if you don’t know anything about mental illness, I would say to pick this book up because—well, why not? This book is a great breakthrough between the dumb stereotypes of mental illness and the way the author, Jenny Lawson handles her mental illness (and I can tell you, she’s doing a lot better in life than the rest of us are, so no mental illness does not ruin you).
Some things that I didn’t like was that the author seemed to not have a problem with the way that others felt about some things (she liked to make people feel uncomfortable for some things) but I didn’t really mind.
Overall, if you want to know about mental illness, then read this book! If you don’t then still read this book for a good laugh! You should definitely give this book a try, no matter how much it is or isn’t about mental illness. :D
