The Try Guys deliver their first book—an inspirational self-improvement guide that teaches you that the path to success is littered with humiliating detours, embarrassing mistakes, and unexpected failures.
To be our best selves, we must become secure in our insecurities. In The Hidden Power of F*cking Up, The Try Guys - Keith, Ned, Zach, and Eugene - reveal their philosophy of trying: how to fully embrace fear, foolishness, and embarrassment in an effort to understand how we all get paralyzed by a fear of failure. They’ll share how four shy, nerdy kids have dealt with their most poignant life struggles by attacking them head-on and reveal their - ahem - sure-fail strategies for achieving success.
But they’re not just here to talk; they’re actually going to put their advice to work. To demonstrate their unique self-improvement formula, they’ll each personally confront their deepest insecurities. A die-hard meat-lover goes vegan for the first time. A straight-laced father transforms into a fashionista. A perpetually single sidekick becomes the romantic lead. A child of divorce finally grows more intimate with his family. Through their insightful, emotional journeys and surprising, hilarious anecdotes, they’ll help you overcome your own self-doubt to become the best, most f*cked up version of yourself you can be!
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We love the hilarious videos of these internet sensations, but The Try Guys’ first book goes for more than just laughs. In The Hidden Power of F*cking Up, they explain their “failosophy”—the more failures, the more you learn about yourself and where you’re headed. From there, each of the four humorists attempts a major life change, from going vegan and dressing better to looking for romance and opening up emotionally. This book is self-help without preachiness, offering humor, empathy, and real vulnerability. It made us think that if these guys can change their lives, surely we can as well!
The YouTube-famous Try Guys Ned Fulmer, Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld, and Eugene Lee Yang expound their "Failosophy" through stories of their greatest "tries," biggest failures, and the knowledge gleaned from it all. The foursome that has racked up over a billion YouTube views and five million followers for attempting bizarre or sensational stunts ("from zapping our bellies to stimulate the pains of childbirth, to sparring with professional UFC fighters") exhibit the same colloquial, goofy humor here. After giving brief introductions to how they ended up creating YouTube content together, the guys turn to issues of health, style, work, love, and family, couching their advice in lessons gleaned from their "tries." For instance, Keith learns how to fail spectacularly while attempting CrossFit and Eugene explains tips for getting closer to your family, such as "tell each of your family members to tell you a secret" and "hug them... not a pat on the back. A real, strong, loving hug." While the material isn't particularly hard-hitting, Try Guys devotees will be thrilled to hear about the guys' backstories such as that Ned is a Yale graduate who previously worked as a chemist. Mixing a cocktail of quips and vulnerable self-reflection, the Try Guys nicely highlight the good that is born from failure.
