Publisher's Summary

Read by Tyler Oakley!

Pop culture phenomenon, social rights advocate, and the most prominent LGBTQ+ voice on YouTube, Tyler Oakley brings you his first collection of witty, personal, and hilarious essays written in the voice that's earned him more than 21 million followers across social media.

For someone who made a career out of oversharing on the Internet, Tyler Oakley has a shocking number of personal mishaps and shenanigans to reveal in his first book: He experienced a legitimate rage blackout in a Cheesecake Factory; he had a fashion stand-off with the White House Secret Service; he crashed a car in front of his entire high school in an Arby's uniform; he projectile vomited while bartering with a grandmother. With millions of fans clamoring for more Tyler Oakley, he delivers his best untold, hilariously side-splitting moments with trademark flair in Binge.

#BINGEBOOK

This book was amazing. It made me laugh, it made me cry, and everything in between. I have been a fan of Tyler Oakley for many years, both on YouTube & Psycho Babble, and hearing/reading this book gave me a new found respect for the man. Matthew (if I may call you that), if you read this, thank you for letting your fans inside your mind and giving us your real story. You've already had the power of making me feel better when I've had a bad day, but you have truly inspired me with the stories in this book. It's hard to put into words my emotions, but trust me when I say, I needed this book right now in my life.
Thank you.

Wonderful and empowering stories

This book is fantastic. Told amazingly with some hilarious, yet some very serious stories that, when you're through reading it, make you feel like you can get through because Tyler did and you can too.

BUY THIS BOOK - it's an amazing read/listen

What did you love best about Binge?

I especially enjoyed the time taken to make it feel like a conversation, as if you're just chilling with a friend.

What did you like best about this story?

Living for every bit of it - probably one of my faves was the dentist, lets just say I can relate...

Have you listened to any of Tyler Oakley’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Like watching one of his awesome new videos, but on steroids & green juice!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Tyler talked about his struggle with self image during his youth, that hit home for me.

Any additional comments?

Amazing!!

I just finished the book and it was even better than I anticipated. I truly did laugh out loud, cry, gasp, make snarky looks when something kinky was happening - I went through every emotion! Tyler is such an incredible story teller and how raw and personal this book it took it to a whole new level. I related it him in more ways than one and have even more respect for the person that is Mathew Tyler Oakley.

I am amazed!

I've had quite an amazing time reading AND listening to this audiobook, I think Tyler's point of view on severe topics such as eating disorders and depression can actually help and save people. I really hope everyone can listen to this because it's simply brilliant! Also I'm quite new to this #TeamInternet but I can honestly say that I'm staying for a very long time. THANKS TYLER! xx @SuckMyAlibi

AAA: Addictive, Authentic, Aural gold

It was a Guardian review of YouTuber books that made me interested in Tyler Oakley's memoirs, even though I didn't follow him that closely on YouTube. The review described it as a 'story that needed to be told', and listening to the audiobook, I agreed by that statement tenfold. Not only were his stories interesting, engaging and unapologetically candid, Tyler has an irresistibly entertaining voice that piques your interest. His intonation is rarely flat as he takes you on a magical bouncy castle ride with his voice, and he delivers his funniest, most horrific, and most emotionally raw stories all with a great understanding of drama and pacing, to achieve the optimum effect. The occasional self-aware giggle at his own expense also added to the authentic feel when regaling the reader with his stories. I was entertained the whole way through, and listened to the whole thing in one go. Tyler is an undeniably talented storyteller.

Accidental Delight

I was going to buy this book and read it in person I prefer reading I feel like it goes in more plus it's just something I enjoy. But as I knew it was great from reviews and well Mamrie hart on a plane I never doubted it for a second i accidentally got charged from my membership so used the credit to get this. Great job Tyler!!

Good times

What made the experience of listening to Binge the most enjoyable?

His giggles as he was talking about some more cringey things, and his obvious love for his followers showing through in how he shared it with us

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed and got emotional

Any additional comments?

Thank you for this book! It helped me feel less anxious while I was on public transport and it made my days brighter, wish it was more. SO GOOD!

Absolutely spectacular!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have been a fan of Tyler Oakley for many years, and found this Audiobook on an ad. I logged onto Audible, and got this on my free trial. I fell in love with this book similar to a metaphor used in The Fault in Our Stars; quickly, and then all at once. It was amazing listening to his inspirational life story

Who was your favorite character and why?

Matthew Tyler Oakley - there wasn't really a choice 😂 (even if there was it would be him)

Which character – as performed by Tyler Oakley – was your favourite?

Tyler's voice is literal gold dust I want to cherish.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely! In fact, I listened to all of it in one go, and then listened to it again whilst doing everyday stuff

Yassss!!!

I honestly had jumped off the Tyler Oakley bandwagon a long time ago. But the book intrigued me, so I gave it a listen (mostly because I love how theatrical Tyler's voice is).
He was so raw and honest, I connected so much to some of his struggles and the fact he mentioned poop a million times!
He is hilarious and witty. I felt like he was sitting on my couch having a d&m.
Get it, buy it, listen to it.
Binge is wonderful. Wonderful I tell you!!
Needless to say, I am back on the Tyler Oakley bandwagon.

Love it, even though it is revealing, I love how personal it is and in a way you can connect to it too. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for anything to do with Tyler Oakley. Nothing to dislike about this book, I thought it was perfect, and Tyler, you should be proud ❤️👍🏼

Fairly sure this is everything I didn't know I needed - full of laughter and tears. Also, listening to it rather than reading it makes me feel like I'm some kind of secret club
