I do have the habit of being a little bit anti the normal pants about everything, so I guess that’s my shit. Living in the US, it took awhile to get here, and it took even longer for me to get around to reading it. He only started the cooking videos and anti-jar sauce tirade he is best known for during the first COVID lockdown. It's worth reading for his interesting life story but probably could have been done really well in 100 pages.

Nat is able to talk about mental health issues in such a different, sometimes humorous way that had me smiling throughout this whole read. No part of our weird world and strange behavior is spared as our long-haired guru tells us what he reckons about it all – and amps up the flavor with some eye-watering stories from his early years before a sweary video about pasta sauce shot him to global fame. As a fan myself; I was eagerly awaiting the release of this book to find out more about the man that encouraged all us to fuck jar sauce and cook from scratch. Nat’s What I Reckon was the tattooed lockdown saviour we didn’t know we needed, rescuing us from packet food, jar sauce and total boredom with his hilarious viral recipe videos that got us cooking at home like champions again.In response to the craziness he was seeing when COVID-19 crashed the party, Nat waged a war against processed food and launched a no-nonsense instructional video for one of his tried and true recipes. Features a small selection of Nat's favourite recipes illustrated by Sydney artists Bunkwaa, Glenno and Onnie O'Leary. Watching leeks with little hairy bumcheeks run away from a fuck off knife has given me immense joy, and I never want to read a recipe that’s not like that ever again. another person's take on mental health and how he deals in a world that he sometimes struggles to feel a part of. Its full of swears and Australianism but it's a solid book counteracting the psudeo happyism that exist in the self health world.

We hear about his life and times and I’m really happy that for all the laughs that came with it; there was an emphasis on mental health. We celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stories, traditions and living cultures; and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. At the time I was struggling with my writing and how it would be received—should I be writing personal things about my sexuality? The funniest bits were the commentaries on the ridiculousness of tissue boxes on the back shelves of cars, coffee after dinner and hot dogs.

A pretty chilled out view of the world and ultimately a good reminder to just chill out and not take yourself too seriously. My favourite quote: “I just hate the idea that someone is out there giving themselves a hard time for not being enough for the world around them.
