Binge

introduction


GO AHEAD, BINGE.

I’m not saying go out and snort a bunch of cocaine or do anything that’s going to seriously put you or the people around you in danger, obviously.

Binge on the things that bring fulfillment and happiness and satisfaction and make you feel alive. Binge on people who fascinate you and love that wakes you up from monotony. Binge on exploring, both your hometown and the farthest continent. Binge on the time you spend bettering yourself and petting dogs. Binge on picking your grandma’s brain and learning the story of the time she got catfished. Binge on giving, in all senses. Binge on indulging.

We’re told every day from an early age that moderation is key. Count your calories, wait a while before you tell someone you love them, and remember that balance is the path to happiness. While all of those are great in theory, does a lesson taught from someone else’s mistakes resonate just as deeply as the ones you learn yourself? When you binge, you find your own boundaries.

Even if I spend every waking moment attempting to keep my life in balance, I’m going to fuck up. Having already fucked up quite a few times in my life, and having lived to tell the tale, I don’t regret any of it.

I’ve binged plenty of times in my life, sometimes for better, sometimes for worse. Regardless, I indulged. This collection is the result.

This book...where to start? I have to be honest when I say I expected it to be a good read. I did not expect it to be as amazing as it was! It hit all the feels. It made me laugh and cry, my heart both broke and sang for Tyler numerous times through out. I "binge" read the book all in one day...read 4 hours... (yes the pun was intended). It didn't feel so much like I was reading a book as I felt more like I was sitting there having a conversation with Tyler. He is very candid, sometimes to the point of being questionable, but held nothing back. It flowed amazingly from one chapter to the next, with a bunch of silly Tyler-isms shall we call them, in between. I feel he kept honest to his heart, honest to his fandom, and gave us all what we have been longing for for so many years. I can only hope his adventure continues and we are lucky enough for him to bless us with another book. I can honestly say that when I turned the last page, and finished the last chapter it left me thinking. It shows how much of a "normal" (I use the word normal though it can be interpreted many ways I suppose) person Tyler is. What you see is what you get. He is very much the Tyler we see in videos and interviews, but within that he is also just one of us. A person who gets excited when someone retweets his post, or likes his post. Its the small everyday things that matter, and he proves time and time again in his book that he has not lost sight of that. Binge will definitely be in my small selection of books to re-read! It almost saddened me when I finished the last chapter. Some say when they finish a book they feel like they are losing a friend.Read more ›

I will be the first to admit, as a 35-year old, I was skeptical that I would enjoy this book, as so many are targeted more towards the younger tween-teen demographic (which is not a bad thing at all, it's just not my particular taste), but, as I still love his videos, I decided to give it a shot. Boy, was in for a surprise! I read the entire book in less than 24 hours. I was hooked from the first paragraph, and thoroughly enjoyed every page. It is candid, honest, self-deprecating yet empowering, and of course, funny as hell. Reading this book makes you feel like you are at a great friend's house, curled up on the couch, chatting and laughing over drinks and take-out food. I read a LOT, so I hold on to very few books, but this one will have a permanent spot on my bookshelf.

Honestly, so worth the purchase. If you love to watch Tyler on youtube or listen to him and Korey's podcast Psychobabble, this is right down your alley. As Tyler always says, these are never before told stories - and they are hilarious, heart warming and sad. I purchased this book on a few days before New Year's and it was my New Year's resolution to read one book a month, because I often find myself making excuses or doing other things (like watching Tyler's videos), but when this book arrived Dec. 29, I had already finished it by New Year's day! The chapters are the perfect length, and unlike a fictional novel, it's very relatable reading these stories because they've actually happened to Tyler. Another great thing about this book is that you learn things about Tyler that you would've never even guessed! The book itself is very high quality, my package came in perfect condition and with very fast shipping. All in all, a must read if you are a fan of Tyler, and if you have no clue who he is, well read this book and find out! You won't be disappointed. Also, if you get the book and take a selfie with it and tweet or instagram it with #ourbingeselfies Tyler will like your photo and make your day - trust me, it happened to me and I couldn't stop smiling

I knew Tyler would write a great book, but I must have underestimated somehow because Binge is life changing. I've read it countless times and still find things that make me appreciate him and what he does even more. Thank you Tyler for writing "A Love Lesson." You have NO idea how much of an impact you can have. If I ever meet him, the first thing I would do is to thank him for sharing this part of his life. I don't think it could have been written any better by anyone. It blew my expectations and I feel like he has changed a lot of lives. I wish I had someone to tell me this when I was younger, and I appreciate the way in which he chose to write about his experience. All around an amazing read... Not only for the fans, but just everyone in general. He truly is an incredible human and I hope he continues to change the world for the better!

The book arrived with no problems & in great condition. I'm only about halfway done of this book but so far I'm in love! There are so many funny moments that you just can't help but laugh out loud while reading & it's great to get to know Tyler Oakley even if it's more than I needed to know (lol!) It's a good read even if you're not a Tyler Oakley fan.

Whether you've been keeping up with Tyler through YouTube and social media for years, or you know nothing about him, Binge is a must-read. Tyler's comedic and entertaining style in which he recounts events can make any small moment feel like a legendary story.
I've read Binge front to back three times now and I have both laughed and cried every time. Tyler is an amazing person who has achieved so much, and I am eternally proud of him and this book.
