My Review:

I thought since this book is more of a photo book than an actual book-book that I would include my movie review along with it since both book and movie are about The Amazing Tour Is Not On Fire adventure that Dan and Phil went on. Since releasing The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire (which you can read my review for here), the boys came up with a stage show that they've been touring across the world with. Since not everyone could go to the show (ie. people like me), they filmed the show and released it on YouTube Red, you can find it on Dan's channel. They also filmed a documentary of what went into the making of the show, also released on YouTube Red, and can be found on Phil's channel.

I loved watching both films on each of their channels. I started with the making of documentary, and it was great to see everything that went into the show, and it really showed just how hard these two guys work at what they do. Then, I went on to watch the stage show and it was amazing!! I wish I could have gone when they came to Toronto. It had everything that we love from their videos put into the show, and it all tied together. I laughed so much while watching it in the best way!

After watching the film, I bought the enhanced ebook (even though I have the hardcover, but on the ebook, they provide commentary throughout the book!). The enhanced ebook was great, to get personal plus professional of all their travels along with their commentary whether it was written or said throughout the book! I loved everything about it, and Dan and Phil should be so proud of everything they've accomplished over the past few years!
