The book, which doesn’t come out until October 20, banks on the same kind of exaggerated humor found in PewDiePie’s YouTube videos and provides a parody of the self-help industry. In the book’s Amazon page, its description says it is 256 pages of “beautifully illustrated inspirational sayings by which you should live your life.” Some of PewDiePie’s featured words of wisdom include “You can never fail if you never try” and “Don’t be yourself. Be a pizza. Everyone loves pizza.”

YouTube star PewDiePie made $7 million in 2014

Published on Jul 9, 2015
Last year around this time, word got out that Felix Kjellberg, a 24-year-old Swedish bro known online as PewDiePie, made $4 million a year by playing video games, recording his reactions and uploading the resulting videos to YouTube. At the time, he had 27 million YouTube subscribers. Today, Kjellberg has 37.7 million subscribers on YouTube and his company, PewDiePie Productions, pulled in roughly $7.4 million in revenue in 2014, according to Swedish newspaper Expressen. It looks like this whole “watch people play video games on the internet” craze is here to stay.
(...)
Kjellberg’s next big thing is the launch of his book, titled This Book Loves You, a collection of inspirational quotes that he’s said over the years as an online personality. For example: “Don’t be yourself. Be a pizza. Everyone loves pizza.” This Book Loves You is due to drop in October.

His success is not just online, because in 2015 he published a satirical self-help book with lines such as ‘You can never fail if you never try’ and ‘Don’t be yourself. Be a pizza. Everyone loves pizza’ (PewDiePie, 2015).
