Have you heard of Stuart Edge? I hadn’t until I got the chance to read his new book, On the Edge.
Stuart has nearly 2.5 million YouTube subscribers and more than 20 million views on select videos, he is known for his “feel good” approach to life.
In the book he talks about how life hasn’t always been easy. He also talks a lot about faith (he is LDS) and how staying true to what he believes made the difference for him. If you haven’t seen his videos, you can watch them on his YouTube channel here.
He certainly had the worst job ever to pay his way through college. In fact, it was this job that inspired the title of the book, “On the Edge: How My Crappy Job Changed My Life”. Yes friends, he used to be a porta potty cleaner! Eww.
Honestly I am not sure how anyone does that job, but thank goodness people do! I’m pretty certain after that job you could handle most anything.
It’s a fun read, and I enjoyed how honest he is. He shares the journey that he took, and some of the crazy adventures along the way (dating stories are quiet funny). He shares his struggles with anxiety and his parent’s divorce. He also talks about how he got into making videos.
This would be a great read for teens! I enjoyed it too of course, but I can see a lot of value in sharing his experiences with people just getting started in the world.
*I received a copy of the book for my review. No other compensation was given, and as always, my opinion is my own.
