Publisher's Summary

From the number one New York Times best-selling author of Furiously Happy and Let’s Pretend This Never Happened comes a deeply relatable audiobook filled with humor and honesty about depression and anxiety.

*This program includes an audio-exclusive bonus chapter*

As Jenny Lawson’s hundreds of thousands of fans know, she suffers from depression. In Broken (in the bests possible way), Jenny brings listeners along on her mental and physical health journey, offering heartbreaking and hilarious anecdotes along the way.

With people experiencing anxiety and depression now more than ever, Jenny humanizes what we all face in an all-too-real way, reassuring us that we’re not alone and making us laugh while doing it. From the business ideas that she wants to pitch to Shark Tank to the reason why Jenny can never go back to the post office, Broken leaves nothing to the imagination in the most satisfying way. And 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 when we all need it most.

Inspiration in the best possible way.

This book is the most inspirational book I have read ( besides the other Jenny Lawson books I absolutely loved). It hits home to me in a lot of ways. Keep writing Jenny! You are fabulous in the best possible way. ❤

An absolute gem of a book

Made me laugh so much and and cry when needed. It was like therapy. I loved it so much and I'm sad it's done. Anyone who struggles with any mental illness or personality disorder will relate to Jenny and will find some amazing takeaways for their own lives. She is smart, funny, sassy, and moving. She even made me cry during the Acknowledgments. Just an absolutely wonderful book that I think is made 1000x better by the fact that Jenny recorded this herself as the narrator. You hear her laugh sometimes and you feel like you're chatting with an old friend.

Buy this audio book. There is something for everyone.

Best. Author. Ever.

I adore Jenny Lawson, and everytime I listen to her stories I am laughing and crying and wishing I could be her friend except that involved socializing which terrifies me, so this is the next best thing!

It has it all

I laughed, I cried, I cry-laughed from laughing so hard. Jenny Lawson continues to make us laugh about things that shouldn't be funny (but are) and raw and honest about all the things that aren't. She is a precious national treasure on a good day, and medicine for the heart in these hard times. She knocked this one out of the park for me. Also, the Authour's Note at the end was a really nice touch. Five stars for Jenny Lawson, always.

The perfect follow up

This book is the perfect follow up to Jenny Lawson’s previous books “Let's Pretend This Never Happened” and “Furiously Happy”. It’s read by Jenny Lawson herself and has a number of wonderful stories, chapters, and for those who are familiar with her writing, easter eggs. It also has an accompanying PDF with wonderful photos. This is an amazing book to listen to when you need to relax, need a break, or just need to feel different. If you enjoy this style of writing I strongly recommend you to try this book. (One of my favorites)

Jenny’s stories are best in Jenny’s voice!

I LOVE Jenny Lawson. I love alternating between laughing so hard that I snort and crying because I can SO deeply relate to her mental health struggles. And I *adore* her voice and am so glad she narrates her own books. Love everything about this and every one of her books.

I couldn't stop listening

I don't think I have ever said out loud "WTF is happening and how is that possible?" more than I did while listening to this book. It was So good and So enjoyable I almost finished it the same day. Thank you Jenny Lawson for making me feel normal.

Warm and authentic

This is a great book. I have already listened to it three times. I love the photos are in a pdf at the top of the chapters section. The author does a great job with the narration. After reading this book, it feels like I have been give the biggest and best hug.
