A one-woman media phenomenon and a leading YouTube influencer takes listeners behind the camera and deep inside her world.
Justine Ezarik has been tech obsessed since unboxing her family's first Apple computer. By sixth grade she had built her first website. A decade later she became one of the Internet's first - and most popular - "lifecasters", inviting people around the world to watch her every move 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But it was a one-minute video about an itemized AT&T bill that gave Justine her first taste of viral success: Within 10 days of release, her "300-page iPhone bill" had garnered more than three million views and international media attention. These days, iJustine is a one-woman new media phenomenon: The popular techie, gamer, vlogger, and digital influencer has an army of nearly 3.5 million subscribers across multiple YouTube channels, with total views approaching half a billion.
Now Justine is giving friends and fans a look behind the scenes, sharing never-before-told stories about the hilarious (and sometimes heartbreaking) reality of sharing her life online. With her trademark wit and delightfully weird sense of humor, Justine delivers an inspirational message in support of creativity, entrepreneurship, and the power of staying true to yourself while reminding listeners that the Internet is a very small world - you just never know who you're going to meet.

It was an interesting read, but I am not sure that this was "book worthy." Seemed more like a really long long long blog post.
Absolutely terrific. I have met iJustine and she is very kind, sweet and a very authentic in person. She gives me hope that girls can be both hot and cool. Great book, very interesting stories, and things that I never knew about her. Very interesting of how she started out. Congratulations iJ - @lifeofwilde
I listened to this memoir without knowing who Justine was. now I'm her newest fan. Very impressed with the quality , content, and narration. I found myself looking forward to listening every chance I could. well done.
There is no such thing as an over night success! Justine is a living example of how to live your passion. Thank you for sharing your story with such grace and intelligence.
Justine is a creative person all around and that is reflected in this book. Her unconventional journey to her career is inspiring and the way she tells her story is the perfect mix of funny anecdotes and serious advice. I recommend it to anyone!!!!
"A trip down memory lane and a brilliant insight."
As a fellow 80's baby with a severe tech habit, I thought this was a great trip down memory lane as well as an insight into Justine's life and journey.
Where to start?
Like many reviews already written, I've been following Justine for a while, but I never realised the back story to it. This book is truly amazing taking you through all of Justine's Life, from the high to the lows. With Justine reading this, you just get that extra with her uniqueness on how she explains her life.
If your looking at this now, being undecided wether to buy or not, I would highly recommend! Once I started listening I could not put this down!
I have to start by the story, it is an unforgettable one with highs and lows. Justine really did a good job writing and narrating this story. It's a nice length and didn't get boring. I couldn't stop listening to it. I would highly recommend you listen to this!

"Amazing story and book"
Always been fascinated by Justine's life and I'm so happy that's she's released this book telling the stories of how she came to where she is today. Brilliant book made even better by Justine reading it, definitely going to listen to it again.
"very interesting, funny and gripping"
I have followed ijustine online for many years now, but I didn't realise how much I didn't know about her. A genuinely interesting and informative story of times before YouTube. Funny and lovely. Was truely sad to come to the end!
"The real iJ"
I thought I knew ijustine inside and out before listening to this book... Turns out I did not. I loved iJ reading me her book that she painstakingly wrote over the past two years, I feel truly blessed by her story and positivity she exudes. If I can be half the person iJ is I'll be happy :)
Well worth a listen if you are into all tech stuff.
Nice work would recommend!
