Their quirky comedy videos about their lives and observations on the world have earned them a following of over 11 million subscribers across their channels and a show on BBC Radio 1. Now, in their debut book, they give readers an inside look at a world created by two awkward guys who share their lives on the Internet. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

TABiNoF is truly exactly what anyone who considers themselves a Dan and Phil fan would expect it to be: Funny, charming, sarcastic, and bursting with inside jokes shared with anyone who has had the pleasure of enjoying their content. I was curious as to how two dominant personalities could come together to make one piece of literature and was pleasantly pleased to find that the story read much like a conversation between them would. There were quite a few times in which I caught myself hearing the words I was reading in their voices in my head. It was almost as if my brain went on autopilot and Dan and Phil started to steer (which I'm just now realizing is terrifying). Additionally, it wasn't until I read this book and found myself thinking "I already knew most of this about them" that I started to consider how truly invasive we are as an audience when it comes to our favorite online entertainers. Dan and Phil and others like them have pretty much forsaken all forms of privacy in order to distract us from our everyday lives. I expected the book to be a little more telling than the final product was when, in reality, it was more of a complete accumulation of everything that is "Dan and Phil." It is, essentially, their world in a book. By no means do I intend for that to sound like a negative comment, however I do think it is important for the reader to know that there isn't going to be much information in the book that isn't already known to the common subscriber. It is, nevertheless, fun and quirky and cute, just like they are.
PS: I'm convinced Dan is the actual author for all of the embarrassing fanfictions I've read in the past few years. That was some seriously talented writing!
My parents bought me this book for my birthday because I am a fan of Dan and Phil and asked them to and I would like to say that 'The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire' is, well, amazing! It's fun, colorful, and comedic, just like Dan and Phil's videos. It is also full of mixed emotions; Excitement, joy, love, sadness, and it may give you 'the feels'. They have you laughing one minute, saying 'What the?' the next, and towards the end you may feel a bit sad and like me have an existential crisis. Side note: Dan's fan fiction starts off a bit sad, but it has a somewhat happy ending.
The only issue I had with it was trying to read Dan's dream diary, the writing was so small and cramped, and I can't read cursive all that well to begin with so I had to skip that page, but I would certainly recommend it to friends and family whether they're fans or not.
