Have you ever wanted to build your own concrete crusher boots, but didn’t know how? Are you tired of other people giving you wedgies when you just want to give one to yourself? Dreamt of drifting away on your own raft? Well, dream no more! I have the book for you! An extremely ridiculous, yet somehow practical and completely nifty tome of crazy inventions is packed with instructions on how to make the above dreams come true.

Such is This Book Isn’t Safe by YouTuber Colin Furze. Check out more on his new book, plus some of his other inventions in the videos below.

This guy is extremely popular with 5 million subscribers and hundreds of millions of video views. All of his inventions need adult supervision, but his step-by-step instructions, drawings, photographs, and the eye-appealing layout make this a fun adventure for some parent-child quality time. This book is perfect for middle schoolers with tons of info disguised as fun.

In addition to the inventions, Furze includes practical how-tos good for the inventions, and for any other projects one might need to do, such as how to saw wood, how to measure, and how to drill into metal.

Every page turned has something to tickle your funny bone, even if you have never picked up one tool your entire life. But you should! Because this treasure encourages hands-on activities guaranteed to entertain adult-like children and child-like adults for hours.

Official Synopsis:

Colin Furze, five-time Guinness World Record Holder and YouTube’s undisputed king of crazy inventions, instructs fans and curious young inventors on how to build ten brand new wacky inventions at home with an affordable tool kit.

Colin Furze’s bonkers and brilliant inventions such as a homemade hoverbike, DIY Wolverine Claws, an alarm clock ejector bed, and Hoover shoes have earned him 4.5 million YouTube subscribers and more than 450 million video views. Now Colin is on a mission to inspire a new generation of budding inventors with This Book Isn’t Safe!

This Book Isn’t Safe contains instructions on how to make ten brand new inventions with a basic at-home toolkit, alongside behind-the-scenes stories about some of Colin’s greatest inventions and top secret tips and tricks straight from his invention bunker (aka a shed in his backyard in Stamford Lincolnshire).

This Book Isn't Safe Colin Furze


Invention 1 – The JET Bicycle – The most dangerous unsafe bike EVER

An old woman’s bike built for shopping turned into a bomb inspired safety hazard.

Invention 2 – Homemade Hoverbike

What a creation, it’s a unhinged flying bike/human blender but unbelievably it gets off the ground and actually FLIES.

Invention 3- DIY X-Men Wolverine Fully Automatic Claws

The first ever fully automatic wolverine claws that deploy AND retract automatically.

Invention 4 – Background Underground Apocalyptic Bunker

It’s finished and its amazing, the ultimate man cave and survival cell rolled into one sub garden room.
There are more things to add such as air filtration and different power source but it’s a great space.
