The Try Guys deliver their first book—an inspirational self-improvement guide that teaches you that the path to success is littered with humiliating detours, embarrassing mistakes, and unexpected failures.
To be our best selves, we must become secure in our insecurities. In The Hidden Power of F*cking Up, The Try Guys – Keith, Ned, Zach, and Eugene – reveal their philosophy of trying: how to fully embrace fear, foolishness, and embarrassment in an effort to understand how we all get paralyzed by a fear of failure. They’ll share how four shy, nerdy kids have dealt with their most poignant life struggles by attacking them head-on and reveal their – ahem – sure-fail strategies for achieving success.
But they’re not just here to talk; they’re actually going to put their advice to work. To demonstrate their unique self-improvement formula, they’ll each personally confront their deepest insecurities. A die-hard meat-lover goes vegan for the first time. A straight-laced father transforms into a fashionista. A perpetually single sidekick becomes the romantic lead. A child of divorce finally grows more intimate with his family. Through their insightful, emotional journeys and surprising, hilarious anecdotes, they’ll help you overcome your own self-doubt to become the best, most f*cked up version of yourself you can be!
“I’ve watched the Try Guys for a number of years and they’ve explored topics and issues in funny, inspiring ways. This book, The Hidden Power of F*cking Up, goes even deeper with drama, tears, secrets, and still a lot of humor! Believe it or not, this isn’t comedic pablum but seriously inspirational and personal exploration.”

The Try Guys is a comedy quartet known for their willingness to try anything and everything, all in the name of better understanding the people and world around them. They’re video producers with a keen understanding of and passion for the viral landscape, creating positive (often comedic) content with an eye for repeatable formats and shows, constantly testing and iterating in a quest to discover new hits. They seek to try things outside of their comfort zone–everything from labor pains simulation to performing a full-length drag show. Also, they take their pants off on camera a lot.
Earlier this year they split off from BuzzFeed to form 2nd Try, an independent production company with an aim to expand their brand both within the digital landscape and beyond. In 2018 the group took home Show Of The Year, top honor at The Streamy Awards, and also served as hosts. They also co-created and hosted the YouTube Red series Squad Wars, and are constantly developing material for other outlets, including; a three-part racing miniseries for Amazon’s “The Grand Tour,” Ned’s Facebook Watch show “Night In/Night Out,” and Eugene’s LGBTQ+ focused Queer Prom series.
