"Dawson exhibits his signature brand of twisted humor and neuroses in his second volume of personal essays. [His] journey is fraught with sadness…and comedy…His self-deprecating and outrageous humor…deserves comparison to David Sedaris.", Publishers Weekly
“These 13 essays collected here are…humorous, but some are quite moving…One a humor scale of 1 to 10, 1 being meh and 10 being a hoot, Dawson’s essays earn a solid 7. Teen fans of David Sedaris will enjoy Dawson’s perky essays.", Booklist
"Shane Dawson brings us possibly – no, definitely – the most hilarious read of summer. In this uproarious essay collection, Dawson unleashes all his wit and explores his mortifying childhood and every awkward moment as he came to terms with bisexuality. Overflowing with humor and sharp observations on the struggles surrounding modern culture, It Gets Worse is comfort food for the millennial soul."
, Sunset Magazine
“If you're a fan of his, it's safe to say this is already pre-ordered for you, but if you haven't been introduced to this YouTube sensation, I'd recommend checking him out if you're a millennial who loves to laugh.” , Bustle
"Like Dawson’s previous book, I Hate Myselfie, It Gets Worse is a collection of humorous autobiographical essays...laced with both bracing honesty and Dawson’s signature humor."
, Entertainment Weekly (ew.com)
Praise for I Hate Myselfie:
“Though Shane is infamous for his biting wit and crude humor, I Hate Myselfie is as much heart as it is crass.... [It] proves that laughing at yourself can help overcome even the most embarrassing experiences.... Shane may 'hate his selfie,' but his millions of fans will love it.”, AccessHollywood.com
"This book is a haven for difference in a sea of more of the same with YouTuber books. The essay approach really worked for the book.", The Guardian

Just a heads up for people that might worry about the book language and content - it does contain foul language and some stories that might not be appropriate to young readers. If your child is watching him on YouTube then you’re probably okay with what they might be exposed to in the book.
My daughter who is twelve loves the book. I'm ok with her reading it. The book has some raunchy parts but if you have ever seen a Shane Dawson video you know he doesn't have the cleanest mouth. But his stories are definitely helpful and I interesting. I can excuse any number of penis or poop jokes if the essays are solid and they are.
Hoping for a book three!
The books, much like his videos, are delivered in a satirical and funny way while still being raw and honest. If you like his videos, you will love his books. They’re Similar but it’s not a bit, skit, conspiracy or docuseries on someone else. It’s like he did a series on himself but added humor, even in the darker parts. These books get 10 out of 10 piggies/Illuminati symbols from me 💙
NOTE- SECONDARY BOOK. READ "I HATE MYSELFIE," FIRST!
