About the book: Everyone has had that one awful job, but Stuart Edge really had an awful job–cleaning porta-potties. As he cleaned, he dreamed of creating videos that not only made people laugh but also changed their lives. Now a YouTube sensation, Stuart shares his secrets to his YouTube success and reveals his conversion from self-conscious to confident and how being true to his beliefs made all the difference.
My review: I will just admit that I have never seen a Stuart Edge YouTube video. But after reading this book written by him about his life, I'll have to make time to!
I loved the way this book is written. Stuart Edge has a style that is interesting and I was kind of amazed by all of the life experiences that he had that made him who he is today.
I liked that he talked about making videos with a purpose and how he wanted those videos to reflect him and who he is. This book is a quick, easy read that you'll enjoy and that will leave you inspired and wanting to learn more about just who Stuart Edge is and what he does on YouTube.
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
About the author: Stuart Edge was earning money for college tuition by cleaning portable toilets when inspiration hit: “Make YouTube Videos That Make People Happy.” Only months later, he called his mother in a panic. “Please pray for me. I think one of my videos just went viral.” The Mistletoe Kissing Prank did indeed go viral, netting more than 27 million views to date. Several viral videos later, Stuart Edge has found fame, and possibly fortune, making people laugh. Not bad for a boy with social anxiety.
