Just to clarify, I never heard of Phil or Dan. Never. Ever. Really. I only use youtube for music, not for listening to people talk. I just spotted this book on my update feed on Goodreads, saw several people just rave about it, and also the title just sparked my interest, so I decided to see if I could find it, and I did find it!
What did I think about this book? Well, it was a really fun book, I laughed aloud quite a few times (my favourites would be the descriptions of their houses, the hamster part and the quiz about chair (though it didn't really match me, but oh well.)). The rest of this book is a colourful bundle of everything about Phil and Dan, from birth to where they are now. How they started their Youtube stuff, how they evolved from there, and how they became friends. It was really interesting and I feel like you don't really need to know them before you read this book. Everything about them is explained here, we even see some stills from their videos to photographs of them (or their hairstyles).
They also explain how to make Youtube videos, what to do and what not to do if you want to start. I liked that they added this, I am sure that people will be making use of that.
Will I be checking out Phil/Dan's videos after I read this one? Nope, I am still not interested in that side of Youtube, and I will stick to listening to music.
Would I recommend this book? Yes, even if you never heard of them before, this book is really funny and I enjoyed reading it and finding out about 2 guys who are apparently very popular.
