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 (Goodreads)

Review

I’ve enjoyed Good Mythical Morning (GMM) for years. It’s hilarious. Rhett and Link do a lot of silly, stupid things to simply bring a smile to people’s faces.

I picked up the hardcover of this book shortly after it came out and loved how much fun the content was. Rhett and Link have somehow translated their unique voices (both individual voices and a collective voice) to the page. It’s a beautifully designed book with callouts, quotes, photos, and activities that really enhance the reading experience.

Rhett and Link’s Guide to Mythicality is absolutely hilarious. They have brilliantly translated their YouTube show onto the printed page.

I had a solo road trip come up and decided to dive into the audiobook version of this book to entertain me on the miles of endless highway. Man, oh, man, was it an amazing experience. I adore audiobooks narrated by the authors and Rhett and Link do a phenomenal job. And — they even bring in the GMM crew and their wives to help narrate portions of the book written from their perspectives. The experience is really fun on audio, but not quite the same as print as you don’t get the visual stimuli of the pictures and illustrations.

Pair the audiobook with the print edition for the optimal experience of Rhett and Link’s Guide to Mythicality.
