Summary from Goodreads:

Hello reader,

In this book is a world. A world created by two awkward guys who share their lives on the internet!

We are Dan and Phil and we invite you on a journey inside our minds! From the stories of our actual births, to exploring Phil's teenage diary and all the reasons why Dan's a fail.

Learn how to draw the perfect cat whiskers, get advice on what to do in an awkward situation and discover which of our dining chairs represents you emotionally. With everything from what we text each other, to the time we met One Direction and what really happened in Vegas...

My Review:

This is not a serious book. Then again, I wasn't expecting it to be serious. What I was expecting was a fun, hilarious book that would have me smiling that the huge dork that I am, and laughing out loud in a room full of people and having them look a me like I'm crazy... And that's exactly what I got. It was adorable, and fun, and exactly what you would expect from Dan and Phil. This book was totally and completely Ace.

I'm not much of a Youtube watcher... but once upon a time ago, I stumbled across Dan's How To Speak Internet colab video that he did with Jack and Finn. It was hilarious and I couldn't stop laughing, and I absolutely loved it... So what did I do after that? Well, I am not ashamed to admit that I binge watched all of the videos that he had done thus far {he had been youtubing for 3 years by that point, so there were quite a few} and then of course, if you're waching Danisnotonfire videos, you're inevitably going to meet Phil. So, to make a long and nonsensical story short... I went from not being a big Youtube watcher to watching these two almost religiously. What I like so much about Dan and Phil is that on one hand, you have guys who do things like this:

But then you turn around and:

Right, so onto the review. I thought this book was super fun. All the pages were in color, and you get to see a little more into the lives of Dan and Phil. There's a whole bunch of random awesomeness . I thoroughly enjoyed reading about what happened in Vegas {who knew playing in the casino could be so dangerous?} and how they got to interview 1D when they weren't going to be able to {that took major guts, btw [also, I thought about saying balls, but I didn't want to make it awkward]} And I liked the addition of "Going Deep With Dan And Phil"... that was entertaining. I also liked that in the narration, not only were they talking to you, they were interacting and bantering with each other as well... It almost made it seem like you were watching one of their videos.

Have you seen any of Dan and Phil's videos? If not, then you're definitely missing out! You can check out Phil's Channel Here, or Dan's Here oooorrrrrrr, you could go watch the Phil Is Not On Fire Videos, because really that's the best of both worlds. Then you definitely need to go check out this book. Well? What are you waiting for? Go!
