From his first vlog back in 2008 to his full-length film directorial debut Not Cool, Shane Dawson has been an open book when it comes to documenting his life. But behind the music video spoofs, TMI love life details, and outrageous commentary on everything the celebrity and Internet world has the nerve to dish out is a guy who grew up in a financially challenged but loving home in Long Beach, California, and who suffered all the teasing and social limitations that arise when you’re a morbidly obese kid with a pretty face, your mom is your best friend, and you can't get a date to save your life.

In I Hate Myselfie, Shane steps away from his larger-than-life Internet persona and takes us deep into the experiences of an eccentric and introverted kid, who by observing the strange world around him developed a talent that would inspire millions of fans. Intelligent, hilarious, heartbreaking, and raw, I Hate Myselfie is a collection of eighteen personal essays about how messy life can get when you’re growing up and how rewarding it can feel when the clean-up is (pretty much) done.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 11, 2016 – Popular YouTube personality Dawson (I Hate Myselfie) exhibits his signature brand of twisted humor and neuroses in his second volume of personal essays. A number of these trace his artistic and professional development from a high school video project to a sobering experience filming his first feature film for a reality show and dealing with eviscerating reviews. He frankly discusses the journey to accepting his bisexuality, beginning in kindergarten with simultaneous crushes on the pretty blonde girl and the spiky-haired bullying boy. This journey is fraught with sadness, as when he describes his tendency to "fill the void... with food and other addictions," and comedy, as he takes a trip down the rabbit hole of hook-up apps. His self-deprecating and outrageous humor is hit or miss, but at its best it deserves comparison to David Sedaris, whether he's writing, "I'm the opposite of a party animal. I'm a funeral person" or recalling wearing a flamboyant T-shirt on the first day of middle school and boarding a Bible study bus for the free candy. A story about ending up at the Mexican border after a wrong turn, however, is completely unfunny and entirely lacks the drama he tries to manufacture. This decent if lopsided second effort from a writer still finding his voice should satisfy Dawson's previously established fans.
