Summary:

"Jenny Lawson has always been quite candid about her mental health. In Broken (in the best possible way), she explores how after years of suffering from depression she finally tried the experimental treatment of transcranial magnetic stimulation. Lawson details her treatment with brutal honesty--and with her trademark brutal humor. Lawson 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. She tackles such timelessly debated questions as "How do dogs know they have penises?" We hear 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." --Provided by publisher.
