Trying to get over every past trauma, fear, hang-up, obsession and hurdle in your life? Just ask author Augusten Burroughs. He's offering his advice in his new book "This is How."

He joined The Daily Circuit to talk about his new collection of essays. Burroughs made a name for himself with the 2003 memoir "Running with Scissors" about his absurd and chaotic childhood. Despite some family members (and critics) who question the veracity of his writing, Burroughs has continued to delve into his life for a series of funny and sometimes shocking follow-up memoirs.
