How to Be Sane

A Groundbreaking Mental Wellness Guide from a Gorgeous Female Doctor

About The Book

Being sane: it’s what we are all striving for, right? With tips and tricks from widely celebrated—and extremely fictional—therapist, Dr. Theresa Lawn, you too can achieve mental sanity, a higher sense of self, and the perfect Denver omelette.

Dr. Theresa Lawn—a demented, self-proclaimed therapeutic genius—has shared her groundbreaking treatise on the mental health sphere exclusively with Emmy-nominated writer and performer Emily Altman (whose absurd and hilarious voice you may recognize from shows such as Big Mouth, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and Inside Amy Schumer).

There’s so much to learn from Dr. Lawn’s work—from how to deal with change to learning what Dr. Lawn’s boyfriend’s butt looks like, from how to approach conflict to understanding her profound passion for both McDonald’s and Bob Dole. These are deeply universal human experiences—and support for it all is within these pages.

Raves and Reviews

"Hilarious." (Jack Handey)

"This absolutely stunning piece of literature took me on a harrowing journey of self-discovery. Did Dr. Theresa Lawn fix my issues? No. Did she give good advice? Also no. But am I better because of it? Again, likely not. But I continue to be a massive fan of Dr. Theresa Lawn and her book whisperer (my friend and Big Mouth colleague) Emily Altman. I love them both, almost as much as I have learned to love myself (which I do not), through their work." (Nick Kroll)

"This book is a cry for help from someone who wants to help you so badly that SHE needs help! So much helping going on! Isn't it wonderful? I am pleased to say I am now sane, when before, just a short time ago, I was not. This book has the information you need to know by/about/with Dr. Lawn and her wisdom-filled life of theories and knowledges. Go 'See' this Doctor and get 'On' this Lawn!!" (Bob Odenkirk)
