I'm very glad a read this book.

These to two are really honest and want you to do well. This is not a fluff book trying to sell a backdoor product, but a great honest effort to get you some motivation and examples of people on YouTube.

Could it have gotten more advanced and deeper? sure but who cares still worth reading.

great book from 2 trusted and proven Youtubers

I read the book a couple months ago and now listened to it in one night also, recommended you do both also, while listening you can just soak it in while working on other stuff which I like but sitting down and reading definitely helps as well

Content always trumps technique!

Sean and Benji are great guys and I love their content. Their hard work, preparation and experience are evident herein. They are not, however, skilled narrators. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, despite the "rough around the edges" presentation!

Don't use a credit on this. Moderately passable

In one sentence: It was OK, but whoever let Benji read should be fired.
Detail: I understand why the authors felt that they should read the book. I don't understand why the engineers allowed them to. Sean was ok, his chapters were listenable. Benji, brother, you do good things but as Gary says, you need to know your strengths. Reading aloud is not your strong suit. This should have been passed to a professional narrator. They have a chapter in the book about hiring out jobs that a creator doesn't want to/or can't do... for the revision include "reading the audio version" as a job to be hired out.
As for the meat of the book, it was ok. There isn't really much new in here, and some things are rushing up to their expiration date. One point was the focus on (unpaid) internships. Yes, it is tempting to pull a Tom Sawyer and try to get someone to paint the fence for you, but a couple of the examples seemed to strain at the bounds of ethics.

To Sean and Benji: I know this is a somewhat harsh critique, but I think you guys can do better. This book was released in March 2019, so I would have expected more recent examples. Even if it meant that this revision was different in some places than the print versions (and screwing up whispersync).

Good but wish there was more content

I love these guys and follow their Youtube channel. The book is a bit incomplete though. They spend more time talking about them and not about growing the readers channels. Save your money and just watch their amazing youtube videos - they're way better

Too much about other youtubers.

I wouldn't mind a few examples of other people's success but it's all the way through the book. Taking all that out would leave a very short book.

I love the YouTube channel though.
