Description

"Funny, subversive, and able to excavate such brutally honest sentences that you find yourself nodding your head in wonder and recognition." (Lin-Manuel Miranda, composer and lyricist of In the Heights and Hamilton: An American Musical)

Are you a sensible, universally competent individual? Are you tired of the crushing monotony of leaping gracefully from one lily pad of success to the next? Are you sick of doing everything right?

In this brutally honest and humorous debut, musician and artist George Watsky chronicles the small triumphs over humiliation that make life bearable and how he has come to accept defeat as necessary to personal progress. The essays in How to Ruin Everything range from the absurd (how he became an international ivory smuggler) to the comical (his middle-school rap battle dominance) to the revelatory (his experiences with epilepsy), yet all are delivered with the type of linguistic dexterity and self-awareness that has won Watsky more than 765,000 YouTube subscribers. Alternately ribald and emotionally resonant, How to Ruin Everything announces a versatile writer with a promising career ahead.

Poetic writings of personal experiences

If you could sum up How to Ruin Everything in three words, what would they be?

Genuine, poetic, personal

What does George Watsky bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hearing the book in the author's own words really brought the stories to life and made it feel more personal

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It inspired me. It made me have more faith in myself that one day I could write out retellings of my own life experiences in a similar format.

He's lying...

This book is far from ruined. In the days since making the purchase of this book, I've only put it down when I was absolutely required. Watsky's writes in a way that feels intimate and honest. And he reads as though he's telling a story to a friend. I was looking forward to a new album some day, now I'm hoping for more books.

Pretty good

Humorous collection of autobiographical essays. The “pale kid raps fast” guy is a clever writer who clearly crafts his sentences for maximum impact, and he’s got some good stories. It was interesting how similar his experiences were to my and my friends’ experiences in our 20s. Anyway, I enjoyed it but if you don’t know who he is, you can probably skip it. Grade: B

Great narration by the author.

Must Read

I am a big fan of George Watsky’s music and poetry, which lead me to reading this book. Honestly it was a masterpiece, very real and relatable. I’d recommend to anyone, fan or otherwise, and let me tell you that after reading this book you’ll become an instant fan. The narration by Watsky makes the book even better!

If you like Watsky, you'll love this!

Listening to this felt as if I was relieving intimate and poetry-infused flashbacks alongside the author. Watsky delivers excellence with abundance. Both his lexical and performance prowess shine. I thoroughly enjoyed my listen!
