The Pointless Books
Deyes signed a book deal with Blink Publishing in 2014, with his début book The Pointless Book due for release in September of the same year. The book is part journal, part activity book and includes a free downloadable app and social media integration. It has been unfavourably compared to Keri Smith's Wreck This Journal, which contained some similar ideas. Rhik Samadder, for The Guardian, stated "It’s a bit like the activity sheets given to children in museums and on planes to keep them quiet. Most of the pages are largely blank, containing instructions to "Draw a selfie" or "Fill this page in with whatever you want!", and found that while "It may not be Moby Dick", he stated that "the Pointless Book is a canny piece of merchandising."
A sequel to The Pointless Book, The Pointless Book 2, was released on 26 March 2015 and features similar content. It was the second best selling non-fiction book on the week of release. A third is planned for release later in 2015.
