Pop-culture phenomenon, social rights advocate, and the most prominent LGBTQ+ voice on YouTube, Tyler Oakley brings you Binge, his New York Times bestselling collection of witty, personal, and hilarious essays.

For someone who made a career out of over-sharing on the Internet, Tyler has a shocking number of personal mishaps and shenanigans to reveal in his first book: experiencing a legitimate rage blackout in a Cheesecake Factory; negotiating a tense stand­off with a White House official; crashing a car in front of his entire high school, in an Arby’s uniform; projectile vomiting while bartering with a grandmother; and so much more. In Binge, Tyler delivers his best untold, hilariously side-splitting moments with the trademark flair that made him a star.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alright Fun to read, but it didn't quite meet my expectations. I enjoyed the more personal chapters such as "Binge," which discussed Tyler's eating disorder and "The One That Got Away" about his college boyfriend as opposed to "Disney Princes," and 20 Things I'd Do If I was Beyonce for the Day." I also enjoyed Tyler talking about his work to spread awareness of LGBTQ+ issues, everyone should go check out his recent video series "Chosen Family" btw :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible! This is the first book I've binged on in a while, finishing the whole thing in just a few hours, it was near impossible to put it down!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I Laughed, I Frowned, I Nearly Cried A short yet heartfelt look into Oakley's life; It's an easy read that I couldn't put down start to finish. My favourite chapter truly had me leaping off the couch and fist-pumping the air with delight and laughter. This sort of book gives you a better looking into a large youtuber's life without completely oversharing into a personal life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Persepectives I had ordered this for myself and absolutely loved it! Each page was more fascinating than the last.

Read from the Book

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.

Editorial Reviews

"[Binge] explores every emotion: you will laugh, then you will cry for sure too, you will gasp and you will be terrified, and then you will have too many emotions and will want to stab the book and throw it out of your window! (But you will not actually do it because by that time the book will be very dear to you.)...very meaningful and a fun voyage."
