This is The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire
(Even if you don't read this, it's a cool-looking coaster, right?)
The title of this book is so accurate - it IS an amazing book, and it wasn't on fire!
I've been watching Dan & Phil (DanIsNotOnFire & AmazingPhil) since about 2011/12, and they are probably two of the few YouTubers that I've continued to watch over the years. Their videos always put a smile on my face, and their collabs are always hilarious.
And this book is every bit as amazing as their videos! It's filled with their humour, geekiness and randomness, and the perfect read for any phan.
Giving a new meaning to an autobiography, The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire, looks at the world of Dan & Phil, from their lives before becoming crazy internet famous, to starting their channels, becoming best friends & roommates, getting a show on BBC Radio 1, creating Dil Howlter, and going to Japan. Plus tonnes of extra goodies like how to draw the perfect cat whiskers, a look at their Manchester & London apartments, which dining chair you are, YouTube channel trivia, the seven second writing challenge, and so much more! Every page is a new adventure and laugh, and you won't want to put it down - it's a 'Phil Is Not On Fire' video in book form!
I ended up listening to the majority of this book on audiobook because I was hearing Dan & Phil's voices in my head while reading anyway. The audiobook is fantastic, and I highly recommend purchasing it - what better way to experience the world of Dan & Phil from Dan & Phil themselves! The audiobook also contains extra bits, so definitely check it out
This book really helped pull me out of my reading slump. It's a fun and light read, and full of some great behind the scenes facts & photos, and gives a great glimpse into the world of Dan & Phil. It's the perfect book for any phans (not matter how extreme & hardcore a phan you are) out there, so if you haven't already, go and pick it up!
And, for anyone interested, I got the blue dining chair!
