Grace Helbig is one of the funniest people on the internet. And the internet is a large place that encompasses the majority of the world so really that just makes her one of the funniest people of our time. And what really is time? Is it truly linear? Is it all happening at once and our perception just makes it seem like it’s separate and moving forward in a comprehensible fashion? Is it– okay, I’ll stop, but point is, if she’s one of the funniest people of our time, there’s no way to prove she’s not one of the funniest people ever, and hey, she’s just funny, you know?
And besides her incredibly popular YouTube channel, upcoming TV talk show, and the avalanche of other accomplishments that would take up an entire article in and of themselves, she’s also releasing her new book today: Grace’s Guide, a handbook for millennials.
Now, I haven’t had the opportunity to read this book yet, but we know it includes anecdotes from Grace’s own life, advice from her mom, interactive worksheets (like these found on her website), and oh-so-much more. And having watched a butt load of Grace’s videos while procrastinating responsibilities more often than not over the past few years, I can confirm that, at the very least, her advice for things such as drunk-hanging Ikea shelves, cooking “baffle laffe taffles,” and properly listening to Taylor Swift songs is truly incomparable.
Grace’s Guide is one of several YouTube-related books being published by Touchstone, a division of Simon & Schuster. Previously released was Pointless Book by YouTube comedian Alfie Deyes, with at least several more yet to come.
Grace is also currently on a tour to promote the book, so check the listings to see if she’s coming to a city near you! You can get autographs! And meet her! And sit quietly in the back drinking out of a flask and wondering why she isn’t your best friend! And, uh, buy another copy of the book. And, if that isn’t enough good news for you, be sure to tune in to her livestream of the book’s launch party tonight!
Personally, I’m rushing out to buy my own copy of Grace’s Guide after work, assuming I can find an actual physical bookstore in existence. Have you gotten your copy? Let us know, and shareeeeeee (the article, not the book — make everyone buy their own because it’ll be worth it).
