confident in their inner diva sanctioned mission to unlock the queerness within everyone, the unabashedly confident and flamboyant show well, for straight people anyway ended up as a cultural phenomenon.It s astonishing to read in this book that the word queer was considered way too risqu for a TV show title in the 2000s , but the producers pushed ahead anyway The rest is herstory, as they say.When I first heard about the Netflix reboot, my first reaction was WTF Queer Eye then was definitely dependent upon a certain cultural milieu for its effectiveness and social relevance.Now, in the age of Trump, and the growing debate about gender identity, and the conflation of gay rights with other minority causes, not to mention the vexed issue of the gay community propping up straight institutions such as marriage by buying into the white picket fence dream did we really need a revival of such a frivolous thing as a gay makeover show Even though the new incarnation is called Queer Eye , it nevertheless seems much less gay and camp than its predecessor The unabashed gayness of the original has been replaced with a non threatening mantra of inclusivity and kumbaya singalong The agenda of the Netflix revival seems to be that one can be gay, but not be or act queer, so as not to frighten the horses or women and children.Or does it I have just begun to watch season two, and the new show has managed to creep into my heart in a very insidious and unexpected manner Not a single episode goes by without bringing a tear to the eye maybe showing emotion is a gay trait, after all Perhaps it is only acceptable for straight blokes to cry at Game of Thrones The episode when our bohemian boys redo a church hall and reunite a mother with her son, as well as shepherd his ultimate acceptance within a straitlaced religious community, had me crying openly.Why I think that, as with the original, the new show has a definite socio political agenda, especially in the shadow of Trump, and the resurgence of right wing extremism as a global phenomenon, not to mention intolerance, prejudice, ethnic subjugation, and a plethora of other ills and misconceptions that has sparked every war and conflict since time immemorial.The new Queer Eye has a much broader agenda, sending our boys into parts of the US we didn t even know existed there really is a town called Gay And not to mention the show s first encounter with the fairer sex The new millennial Fab Five, if we can call them that, are a much diverse and nuanced bunch, coming across as real people, with baggage and back stories The focus really wasn t on the guys themselves in the original, which did have the unfortunate side effect of painting them as caricatures The super gays fly in and do a magical makeover before you can even blink recipe of the original was never deviated from in any meaningful sense.The new Queer Eye, on the other hand, insists on everyone taking a liberal snort of fairy dust There is no getting away from the gayness of the hosts themselves Paradoxically, however, this very openness tends to push the gay agenda to the back burner while very much informing every aspect of the show itself It is a curious dichotomy, and yet it works incredibly well.So I was equally curious when I stumbled across this lavish book Not only do we learn something of the back stories of each of the guys, but this section is then followed by a detailed overview of each of their areas of expertise, from grooming to culture which is psychological integration in the PC reiteration of the show and those old gay standbys, cooking and interior design.The end result is a wonderfully eclectic reading experience that not only gives great insight into the show itself, but helps round out the Fab Five as fully fledged people in their own right Who just happen to be gay And who extend us the following invitation We officially give you permission to go out and queer eye the world It starts with you now put

coffee table book that would give you some fab five tips and random food for thought If you want anything than that, I m guessing you need to wait for their individual biographies.Also random, but one piece of Bobby s advice really bothered me, and I wanted to talk about it a bit He suggests that, if you go through a breakup, you should always change your bedding, and, if possible your mattress, as well as getting rid of the things that remind you of them I really don t like this as a general rule to follow because everyone s process is different There s nothing wrong with keeping your bedding or your mattress, if it s not a negative trigger for you That s expensive We can t all afford to do that, and we don t all need or want to do that It s a tiny moment, but I really didn t like that advice Do whatever helps you cope in a healthy way after a breakup Not buying new sheets doesn t mean that you re not over your ex it just means your sheets are still fine.Tl dr I love Queer Eye, but

to get the full effect of what the book is bringing to you, which is two points one, this book contain tons of self help and self care tips and ideas on being a better version of yourself and two, the five men making these points each have bold personalities that can only been felt during the show Bonus points if you are also following them on social media.Assuming that you have or maybe you didn t like when I did not listen to the Welcome to Night Vale podcast and still read the books, and that is totally okay , the essence of the book is the advice that all five guys provide throughout the series in a concise manner We kick off with an introduction of the producers of both Queer Eye series and how the current five were selected Part two goes into each men individually with their upbringing and how they came to where they are Part three dives into the worlds of their specialties with plenty of advice and suggestions to work by The last part ties everything together in a format of a dinner party for friends as an example of utilizing the advice provided in one setting.While I agree that this book provides a lot of advice on being a better version of yourself, they are just starter tips that work best when you are starting from the bottom If you are absolutely stuck on clothes as an example, Tan provides a number of options as a basic set to get you thinking on how you can build your wardrobe However, you really have to go out to the stores and try all the things that interest you in order to determine what suits you best Tan explains that there are five basic styles of jeans for women, but he will not spell out which body type suits which type of pants The same concept applies to all five categories found in this book.If you find that you need a book with a lot of detailed advice and suggestions to improve, this would not necessarily be a good choice because it would be too basic If you need a starter cookbook with all the advice of what utensils you need and recipes to start out with, a book like Twelve Recipes by Cal Peternell or The Way to Cook by Julia Child would be better options It is quite likely that you do not feel like you are lacking in all five categories, or if you do feel that way, it would be best to start with one categories and work your way through it until you build confidence.However, if you are a fan of the show and enjoy the personalities of the men, this a fun read to flip through The pictures are nice, you learn about each of them as a person, and read the advice in their voices in an enjoyable manner It would probably make a nice coffee table book for anybody to flip through or a cute, easy gift for a friend that is certainly a fan It is good for medium and large sized libraries that have a broader

    3. So the thing about this book is its really not my thing I read it for the boys, than the content I enjoyed learning about their lives and things they do in a day to prepare themselves It was all pretty interesting, and I learned some new things However I just don t feel like books like this are for me I didn t see the purpose, and generally see these as money grabs than anything else However I enjoyed it, and it makes a nice coffee table book.

    7. I feel like, for a book that is a tie in to a tv series, this is a 5 star book Honestly, I wanted MORE about the making of the show and less of the advice, but the whole thing is worth it for Karamo s chapter which I think I might photocopy and hang over my desk to start 2019 off right If you are a fan of the show, you will love it Not sure if it will appeal to anyone else not familiar with the Fab Five and their hijinks.
