Synopsis

““Internetainers” Rhett & Link met in first grade when their teacher made them miss recess for writing profanity on their desks, and they have been best friends ever since. Today, their daily YouTube talk show, Good Mythical Morning, is the most-watched daily talk show on the Internet, and nearly 12 million subscribers tune in to see the guys broadcast brainy trivia, wild experiments, and hilarious banter (not to mention the occasional cereal bath). Now the award-winning comedians are finally bringing their “Mythical” world to the printed page in their first book.

A hilarious blend of autobiography, trivia, and advice, Rhett & Link’s Book of Mythicality: A Field Guide to Curiosity, Creativity, and Tomfoolery will offer twenty ways to add “Mythicality” to your life, including:

Eat Something That Scares You
Make a Bold Hair Choice
Invent Something Ridiculous
Say “I Love You” Like It’s Never Been Said
Speak at Your Own Funeral

The goal of these offbeat prompts? To learn new things, laugh more often, and earn a few grown-up merit badges along the way. Heartfelt and completely original, this book will be the perfect gift for anyone looking for a fresh dose of humor and fun.”

Review

While not a long time subscriber to their Internetainment, I have been watching Rhett and Link on Good Mythical Morning for at least a year now. They post funny and entertaining daily videos that are a great way to start any day. It turns out that my brother also watches this show (we rarely have anything in common), and so when I saw he had the book I had to borrow it.

Through the entire book, I could imagine every passage in their voices, which made it interesting. This is a very funny book that is part biographical, part life help book. It was very well organized with chapters that are not overly long or overly short. It is also a full-color book that brought to life many of their quirks because just like their show, this book is full of random things.

Overall I definitely recommend this book to all, whether you are a fan or not, because it is funny enough to make you a fan after finishing it.
