I Hate Myselfie : A Collection of Essays by Shane Dawson Paperback

4 out of 5 (2 ratings)


The book that more than 12 million YouTube subscribers have been waiting for!

Shane Dawson's memoir features twenty 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 mum, 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 I Hate Myselfie, 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 (it's a book).

Review by

I'd never heard of Shane Dawson before I got this book. I read to my disabled wife every day, mainly humor, and I was out of books to read (having gone through the entire output of Dave Barry, Bill Bryson, Steve Martin, David Sedaris, and George Carlin, to give you an idea of what we laugh at). So I bought this solely on the basis of amazon's rating. He's younger than our daughter and inhabits a world that we never have and never will. He is demonstrably immature, vulgar, and generally weird. But, the thing is, we started liking the little s**t. He has admirable traits that are really kind of, well, sweet. He also doesn't hold anything back, his documentation of self-embarrassment second to none. We laughed as he laughed at himself. There isn't much in this book that's mean or snide. Well, except for waiting for Lindsay Lohan to die. The book ended too quickly for us. Now I have to look for something else to read to her.

Review by

I absolutely adored this book. I have watched Shane Dawson on YouTube for about a year now, so I was really interested in reading his book and having an opportunity to learn more about him. I found this book to be quite humorous (which was to be expected). I also think that his writing was actually pretty good. The only problem that I had with this book was the fact that it was hard to determine whether or not he was truthful in some of his stories. For example, the dialogue that he presented didn't seem realistic. It was funny to read, but in my honest opinion, people usually aren't that open with the things that they say to others. Other than that, I didn't have any issues with the book. It was a quick and fun read. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning more about Shane and/or looking for something that is light and funny.
