My Review:

As you may know from my Addicted to Youtube: Part 2 post, I'm a big fan of Marcus'! So I was very excited to purchase and read his new book, and I genuinely enjoyed it and the topics Marcus discussed in it. In this book, Marcus talks about health, dating, how to survive a crisis with friends & family, and how to be successful.

What I liked was Marcus would start each topic talking about his experience in that area, and then would give advice or tips afterwards that could help you. I loved reading about health and how he changed his lifestyle to a healthy one. He and Niomi are both inspiring so many people to be healthier, myself included, so it's nice to read what inspired him and how he stays motivated.

I love Marcus and Niomi together, and I really enjoyed reading about how they met to when they started dating. I'm very sad that they recently broke up. I found out just after reading that chapter of Marcus' book. But I respect that you can't know everything that's going on in other peoples lives, especially those that put a large part of their lives on social media. I wish them all the best!

Marcus went through some of the crisis's he's experienced in his life with friends and family, and talked about how he dealt with it. He also talked about his YouTube story and how it all began. This book is great if you're a fan of Marcus' as you learn more about him as well as get some helpful advice in certain areas from his perspective. Well done Marcus on a great book!
