The Hidden Power of Fucking Up by The Try Guys

Book Review


The Try Guys have created a guide to taking chances and making mistakes. You’ll learn how jumping out of your comfort zone can lead to inspiration and a boost in self-confidence. And you’ll learn that sometimes things don’t turn out the way you expect them to and it’s ok. It just means you need to try again and do it in a different way. Learning what works best for you, is part of the experience.


I think fans of The Try Guys will absolutely love this book. I highly recommend the audio because each of The Try Guys reads their own sections. Hearing their humor and personalities really made the lessons stand out. Will people who haven’t heard of The Try Guys enjoy this? Ned, Keith, Eugene, and Zach each have unique personalities and perspectives of life. I think just about anyone can connect with at least one of the guys. And their approach to giving advice is different from other self-help books.


The greatest part about this book is that The Try Guys don’t just give you advice. They use their advice throughout the book to show how real-life examples work. Is it hard? Absolutely. They dive into some of the most insecure areas of their life and talk about how they feel during the process of their try. The Try Guys also don’t gloss over the difficulties they have each faced in their lives. The challenges of work/life balance, being comfortable in their physical appearances, the dynamics of their families, there is a myriad of topics available for readers to learn from.


Not only do they venture into different tries, but they also have no problem complaining about them and explaining why they may not work for them. This truly is a book about mistakes. Not every decision you make is going to be a good one. That’s the course of life. But just because you made a mistake, doesn’t mean the next time you try something it will be bad. Just keep trying, and you’ll find some amazing results.


I loved this book. The humor each Try Guy brought into the narration was fantastic. While self-help books can be educational they tend to also be dry. This is educational and entertaining at the same time. I was laughing at their antics while also enjoying the lessons they were sharing. I would read another book by The Try Guys in a heartbeat.
