Bestselling author Shane Dawson shared some of his best and worst experiences in I Hate Myselfie, the critically-acclaimed book that secured his place as a gifted humorist and keen observer of millennial culture. Fans felt as though they knew him after devouring theNew York Times, Publisher's Weekly, Los Angeles Times, and Wall Street Journalbestseller. They were right almost.

In this next collection of original personal essays, Shane goes even deeper, sharing never-before-revealed stories from his life, giving readers a no-holds-barred look at moments both bizarre and relatable, from cult-like Christian after-school activities, dressing in drag, and losing his virginity, to hiring a psychic, clashes with celebrities, and coming to terms with his bisexuality. Every step of the way, Shane maintains his signature brand of humor, proving that even the toughest breaks can be funny when you learn to laugh at yourself.

This is Let's Pretend This Never Happened and Running With Scissors for the millennial generation: an inspiring, intelligent, and brutally honest collection of true stories by a YouTube sensation-turned one of the freshest new voices out there.

My son loved it

5

My 14 year old son asked me for this book, he's not a big reader so I'm always happy to buy any book he takes an interest in. He loved it and I even heard him laughing out loud a few times, and came to tell me some stories from the book that he found funny.

Praise for It Gets Worse:

"Dawson exhibits his signature brand of twisted humor and neuroses in his second volume of personal essays. [His] journey is fraught with sadness...and comedy...His self-deprecating and outrageous humor...deserves comparison to David Sedaris." * Publishers Weekly *
"These 13 essays collected here are...humorous, but some are quite moving...One a humor scale of 1 to 10, 1 being meh and 10 being a hoot, Dawson's essays earn a solid 7. Teen fans of David Sedaris will enjoy Dawson's perky essays." * Booklist *
"Shane Dawson brings us possibly - no, definitely - the most hilarious read of summer. In this uproarious essay collection, Dawson unleashes all his wit and explores his mortifying childhood and every awkward moment as he came to terms with bisexuality. Overflowing with humor and sharp observations on the struggles surrounding modern culture, It Gets Worse is comfort food for the millennial soul."
* Sunset Magazine *
"If you're a fan of his, it's safe to say this is already pre-ordered for you, but if you haven't been introduced to this YouTube sensation, I'd recommend checking him out if you're a millennial who loves to laugh." * Bustle *
"Like Dawson's previous book, I Hate Myselfie, It Gets Worse is a collection of humorous autobiographical essays...laced with both bracing honesty and Dawson's signature humor."
* Entertainment Weekly (ew.com) *
Praise for I Hate Myselfie:
"Though Shane is infamous for his biting wit and crude humor, I Hate Myselfie is as much heart as it is crass.... [It] proves that laughing at yourself can help overcome even the most embarrassing experiences.... Shane may 'hate his selfie,' but his millions of fans will love it." * AccessHollywood.com *
"This book is a haven for difference in a sea of more of the same with YouTuber books. The essay approach really worked for the book." * The Guardian *
