The audiobook that more than 12 million YouTube subscribers have been waiting for! Shane Dawson's memoir features 20 original essays - uncensored yet surprisingly sweet.
Shane Dawson has always been an open book. From his first YouTube vlog back in 2008 to his feature film debut Not Cool to a cover story in Variety magazine, Shane has documented his life pre-tty thoroughly. We've seen awkward and adorable Q&As with his mom, weight-loss center drama, love life details, and the all-important haircut reveal. We've seen his hilarious spoofs of Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, and Sarah Palin. His music videos are awesome.
But in his upcoming memoir, fans will finally get a chance to see the real Shane through personal stories that are at once humorous and heartwarming, self-deprecating and totally inspiring. Highlighting key moments of his childhood and adolescence, through his phenomenal success on YouTube, and continuing on to his more recent experiences as an actor and director, Shane's memoir will feature the silliness and satire his fans already enjoy, but it will be even more in depth, more real, and more portable.

I listened to this not knowing that Shane Dawson was/is a huge YouTube personality, and having no background on him at all made no impact on my enjoyment of his essays. They are witty, hilarious and completely relatable. His performance is highly enjoyable and he comes across very charismatic that I can see now why he's so loved by those that apparently follow him online.
He's self-deprecating, inspiring and seems like a guy you'd love to just hang out with, especially if you like to laugh so hard you spill Splenda-sweetened iced tea out of your nose.
I subscribed to Shane when he was still under 1000 subs (I am now 24). Hearing his voice narrate his life is something i think only he deserved to bring to life. She really added so much enthusiasm. The audio is always best!
Shane. Since the begging of his you tube we have all been by his side rooting for him. He has a great outlook on life i adore him.
I'm sure this is his only book. but i do follow his podcast and videos. he never disappoints. he has a great voice.
It was, and i did! .. It was one of those ones you cant put down.
Shane, I love you. always have always will. this is a great book i would recommend to anyone. He really helped me feel happy on days I didn't think i would see tomorrow.
A cute collection of adolescence stories from a guy who had some personal struggles with weight & other issues. It appears he's popular with the under 25 crowd & I'm sure if you had heard of him before it would have been much more interesting. I'm just glad it was on sale.
It was greater than any expectation I had. As a viewer of Shane's since the beginning, I knew this book would be great although I knew most of the stories before hand! None the less, it was even greater to hear him say a collection of them at once and to hear his true heartfelt voice telling each story. It's great to hear these relatable stories because you know the hard times made someone who they are today! It was an amazing "read" and I would recommend it to anyone who would enjoy a laugh, an "aww" and a "wtf?".
Shane showed a side of himself he never had before. I was hooked through the entire book. Shane narration was very well done but what he wrote was even better. I didn't know what to expect when I started listening to this, but I can say I am throughly pleased by what I heard.
The chapter about Shane and his grandmother was so well written and such a touching point in this book. Almost everything Shane wrote about had a lesson to be learned or a touching story to be told.
Comparing his YouTube videos to this book would be hard to do. They're almost two completely different works. Shane has never been as personal before than he was in the book. The book should a side of Shane that I think a lot more people need to see before judging him completely.
When I told a few of my friends I was going to buy Shane's book they told me that I shouldn't buy it and that they were judging me and made me feel awful for buying his book. Well I think that if they read this book they'd have a completely different view on Shane. Then again I might just need new friends who don't judge and criticize everything I do.
This book was amazing and I understand why Shane pushed us all to read it he should be proud of what he wrote and he should want us to read it because what he wrote was amzing.
I honestly did not expect this when I bought this book! In all seriousness I just liked the title.
Lucky for me I enjoyed it a lot! I've been listening to it in the living room over the last two days and even my mother enjoyed it - which is saying something. So I do recommend this! I like the fact that it's "real" and "raw". If there is more books coming from Shane - I'll definitely buy them!
I loved this book! Shane Dawson really did a good work on this one. I'd recommend this book to everyone whether you know about Shane or not. He's a lot of fun and so is this book.
This book truly tells you what life really is about and how amazing it is every day to take a glimpse of it! 🔱
"AMAZING AND HILARIOUS"
i loved it, he is just as funny as he is in his youtube videos
I wish there was more of this book, I cried, laughed in public and I embraced that! So proud of Shane!!!
I went into this book with an open mind,knowing Shane from his YouTube videos I was curious to see if we would see a different side of,what I have come to know as a complex character.
From the first chapter I was hooked, not only does Shane talk about his many life struggles but he accepts and laughs about them. The pages where filled with comedy we have grown accustomed to, this book had me laughing at two in the morning.
Quite honestly I'm surprised how much I enjoyed this book.
Defiantly worth the read/listen
"Funny but short."
The book was actually quite good however it ia quite short. I could relate to the stories of Shane Dawson however I expected more personal stories instead of character based stories.
"I loved this book "
This book was funny yet inspirational, I enjoyed listening to this audio book so much!!!
"Brilliant. Just brilliant."
Read fantastically with emotion. It had me laughing and crying throughout the entire thing. Really enjoyed listening to this and would definitely recommend. Can't wait for the next one !
it was a brilliant book! I wished there was more when it was done! well done Shane!
"Funny and heartfelt"
I really liked how upbeat and relatable this was. I entered it with low expecting and was pleasantly surprised. The anecdotes were really genuine and honest, the part where he addresses his critics was a little forced but he performed it all brilliantly and really created the characters. I found myself laughing out loud and brought to tears at moments. Especially when he mentioned his grandmother the brutally honest but loving depiction really brought her to life. Throughly enjoyed and would recommend to anyone with a dark sense of humour, fan or not.
This is my 3rd time listening to this book. It's so funny and includes things that Shane doesn't include in his videos, and the fact that narrates it makes it ten times funnier. Definitely recommend to someone needing a good laugh!
