Publisher's Summary

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.

Simply fantastic.

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?".

Never heard of Shane Dawson and still loved this!

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.

Laughing!

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!

Fell in love all over again.

Would you consider the audio edition of I Hate Myselfie to be better than the print version?

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!

Who was your favorite character and why?

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.

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

I'm sure this is his only book. but i do follow his podcast and videos. he never disappoints. he has a great voice.

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

It was, and i did! .. It was one of those ones you cant put down.

Any additional comments?

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.

Shane dawson is everything.

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.

It would help if you were already a fan

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.

Brilliant

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.

Highly recommend!

I find it so crazy how long I have been following Shane's story. I remember his channel when it was skits and music videos. He has only grown since then and I truly loved listening to this book. I felt like I got a deeper insight into who he is as a person and it only makes me love him more.

Hilarious!

Shane's life stories performed by Shane himself. From being a fat long-haired lesbian to an aspiring actor and youtuber.
Honestly, is there anything funnier, more relatable and more exposing? XO

The best audiobook I've ever heard!

So far the best audiobook I've ever heard, BUT I might be biased because I watch Shane (and Ryland and Morgan and Garett) on Youtube on the daily.

Shane Fricken Dawson!

I wasn't really going to get this, but Shane read it so OF COURSE I did! This was great to listen to, my 'head voice' didn't do the book justice. I laughed and cried just reading the book, but actually listening made that full body laughs and full body sobs. It was certainly an experience, something that I get to do again, amd again, and again.
I am so proud, and so happy for Shane, it makes me all weird inside.
I can't wait for his next book!

Dark humour and self deprecation

Shane's style of narration and his quirky essays are perfect together. He is a great story teller and an interesting guy, sharing TMI just to entertain while also making us feel not so alone in our strangeness.
