[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)

Even if he did hire a ghostwriter, like I’m assuming most of these youtubers do the book is worded in such his signature style you know he was the pretty much the one telling these stories and he can make even most sad things incredibly hilarious and laugh out loud funny. It was so good I almost finished the whole book during lunch break.
With a book I really like after I read it once, I try and read it twice (sometimes more than that) but the second time I read it, I realized oh shhh,, these are actually true stories and they were so depressing. I almost want to believe that he made them up, because a lot of people suck sometimes but here they are brutal. Unfortunately everything (except maybe one ch) had such a ring of truth to it that made me be like, I don’t know how he gets up in the morning because if that stuff happened to me I would probably curl into the fetal position or never leave my place again..
This book could be titled I hate people and hear is why, and it would be just as accurate. When you're too “bottom of the people chain” people like to step on you or take advantage (I can empathize with some of the remarks about looks esp when I was a teenager and something someone could say about my appearance/whatever could bring you totally down..but never to that extent) but I feel like the people he was around didn’t just step, they stomped and trampled all over him, talk about kicking a guy when he’s down. And it’s not like it really got any better when he got too high up, people just tried to knock him down so IDK, hopefully he has people in his life that aren’t total d*ckheads. .
I can pretty much compare him to the eminem of comedy (except on a much smaller scale as I consider him talented, but not the most talented comedian) where he pretty much uses his past for entertainment and can make it so...Idk the word to describe it….But there’s this OTT where people with not that many brain cells will take seriously, that I just find hilarious as well.
What I disliked about the book:
I read books for entertainment and to get away from reality and this was a bit too real for me, I was like I need my happy ending and rainbows and puppies and unicorns. Life is hard, and this book reminds me too much of real life except all the bad stuff x 10.
I don’t think he lost one of his jobs because of youtube, he lost it due to poor decision making. But I do agree with him on that people shouldn’t be guilty by association.
The subtitle of it: I hate essays, I’m glad I’m done with school, I don’t want to read about anything with that word in it.
What I loved about it:
As long as I consider this book pure fiction it’s an awesome, hilarious read.
The fact that he included his fans in it with their artistry, I found that really cute.
Would I read another book by him? Yes, as long as I consider it pure fiction. The book reminds me of a young hollywood quirky movie so that’s what I’ll think of it as.
