Zoella’s self-help booked slammed for telling fans how to make a sandwich

YouTube sensation Zoella has come under fire after penning a self-help book instructing readers on how to make a sandwich.

For £20, Cordially Invited can get a step-by-step instructions on how to construct a butty.

And giving millennials a real bang for their buck, the 256 pages also include some handy hints on how to master the ancient art of going for a walk.

Needless to say, not everyone is digging it, with some claiming it was, "written for people with less than five brain cells”

To be fair, Zoella- real name Zoe Sugg – did promise the book would contain “simple but impressive DIYs".

But many couldn’t get past the instructions for making a ham and cheese sandwich.

“When ready to assemble your sandwiches, lay your bread out on your work surface and butter each slice,” she writes.

And when it comes to her sage words of wisdom about taking a stroll, she reminds people to take a coat in winter and sunglasses in summer.

There’s also a handy tip for spring, with the star advising, “Take an umbrella — weather can be a little unpredictable at this time of year so it’s best to be prepared.”

Despite the handy hints, her fans weren’t impressed.

“From start to finish this reads like a manual for the most stupid of people, It revels in making the most simplistic and obvious ideas into over embellished nonsense," commented one.

However, a rep for the publisher insisted that lots of the advice delves deeper than sandwich making.

"Cordially Invited is intended to appeal to people of varied levels of experience so while there are some straightforward and simple tips, there are also more complex recipes and projects such as baking a four-tier birthday cake and making autumn wreaths," the rep said.

"Zoe has put a lot of work into the book and is incredibly proud of it, and we’re delighted that so many of her fans are enjoying it."
