How to Ruin Everything by George Watsky – Review

Hello there you tusks. Today, as you probably deduced by reading the title, I will be giving a short review of George Watsky’s How to Ruin Everything, which is a collection of essays. If you don’t know, i’m a pretty big fan of Watsky (if you read this Dade tell Max thanks again), so I decided to get this book because I have typically liked his work in the past.

Genre: Essays

Even though the essays were not connected, aside from the odd reference shared between them every once and a while, I found them entertaining. I think that Watsky’s lyrical abilities transfer well into normal writing. The essay form gives him a way to tell the stories that would be too long for a song (ignoring Exquisite Corpse here). My favorite stories overall were probably Down to the Filter, Crying & Baseball, and The White Whale. I think that if you can handle Watsky’s music and poetry, then the book should be appropriate. I recommend it to any fans of Watsky or essays!

I think without thinking too hard, I would rate this book 8.5/10, with the point and a half off being only for the book feeling a little bit too short for 12$. But I suppose that’s an unfair criticism, so i’ll round it up to 9/10!

To determine what book I should read and review next, vote on the poll here! If you leave an other answer that’s a book I don’t have, then it will probably be a really long time until I can find it and review it for you, so keep that in mind.

Thanks for reading all the way down to the bottom of this post :9876543
