The Amazing Book is Not on Fire is a project that was taken on by Dan Howell and Phil Lester. The book was announced on March 26th, 2015, on Howell's YouTube channel. The book is assumed to be wrote around the start of 2015, with Dan and Phil thinking of the idea in late 2014 and making some informal plans.

The summary of the book implies that it will be a fun memoir of their lives, in a format similar to their videos. As of the 26th of March, Howell has made a video announcement with no further comment. Lester has yet to voice anything on the project.

Also announced at the same time was the Amazing Tour is Not on Fire, a tour across the U.K with "plans" to move across the world. The tours were a massive sucess, with Dan and Phil having to organised extra showings to accommodate more fans. One of the showings has been recorded professionally, and is rumored to be released on DVD for those who were unable to see the event in person.
