The Pointless Book

Author: Alfie Deyes

What's the story:

The power of YouTube terrifies us. At the tender age of 15, Alfie Deyes began uploading his PointlessBlog (his words) as little more than a hobby, sharing his musings and challenges with the wider web. He how commands a legion of 4.9 million subscribers across three channels, gaining 27 million views per month - the sort of numbers TV shows dream of.

The Pointless Book sees his video blog enter the world of print, providing readers with pointless-yet-entertaining tasks and ideas to mix up their day. It's fun, light-hearted and exactly the sort of thing need on a slow Wednesday afternoon. We've got four exclusive pages for you to play around with below.
