Like his previous books, "Possible Side Effects" is a series of funny little vignettes into Burroughs? life. The topics are hardly interesting and tend to repeat themselves, but his writing style is what makes his essays like potato chips: you know how they will taste and it's that familiar quality that has you coming back for more. And in providing that sort of entertainment, I applaud Mr. Burroughs and his unfailing ability to always bring about the Junk Food of Writing.

Intriguing, funny and comfortable, this book is the best I have read in MONTHS! Augusten is a person I feel that I am getting to know, while reading this book. He's witty and truthful, writing about his life experiences and telling the tale so simply, yet it all comes across as being funny and so REAL! I laughed many times, sympathized others, and related to every aspect of this book, chapter for chapter. I will urge all of my friends who are readers to purchase this book! In fact, I am ordering 3 of his others right now!
