The Try Guys got their start on Buzzfeed, attempting a variety of new things for the sake of a video. In June 2018 they launched their own YouTube channel, and launched their own company. Since the launch they have posted 70 videos, with new videos every Wednesday and Saturday. The Try Guys have already done a few series on this channel, such as one on the effects of alcohol, marijuana and sleep deprivation on driving. They also have multiple stand-alone videos- a more recent one was the guys trying Instagram editing apps. As usual they went on the extreme side with editing, although they also highlighted some of what gives these applications such appeal.
Keith Habersberger, Ned Fulmer, Zach Kornfeld, and Eugene Lee Yang make up The Try Guys. They all bring different strengths to the table and mesh together fantastically. For this book the chapters are on different parts of life that the reader may want to be focused in on. Each of The Try Guys had a specific chapter they spearheaded. Keith took on health, as he is known for his love of fast food and not working out. Ned worked on style, since he had not put a lot of effort into it previously. Zach had focus on love, he was the single friend for a long time and now aims to be the best boyfriend he can be. And Eugene took on the challenge of family, due to his own being somewhat unorthodox.
The Try Guys hope that their book can help people take small steps to improve their own lives. They have learned from their trying of new things and have some personal experiences to share.
