His energetic, entertaining persona and unmatched gaming prestige have garnered him millions of fans across the world.

This August, Ebury Press is publishing Ninja: Get Good, the ultimate guide to gaming that reveals Ninja’s secrets to his success. With hardworking tips on topics such as using the best equipment, practising with purpose, developing a streaming strategy, and pulling together the right team, this book will help players become unstoppable.

Editorial Director at Ebury, Emma Smith, spoke about the exciting acquisition: “As a team we’ve been pursuing Ninja for some time and we are thrilled that in Get Good he has produced a hugely entertaining but incredibly practical book about the art and science of gaming. It is going to give players across the world exactly what they want – the inside track on how to be the next Ninja.”

After Get Good, Ebury will publish a Ninja notebook with stickers, prompts and gaming tips, available in August. In December, Ninja: The Most Dangerous Game, will be published. The first in a series of original graphic novels, it is set in a fictional world created by notable comic writer Justin Jordan and comic artist Felipe Magaña. This graphic novel will offer a new way for Ninja fans of all ages to experience Ninja’s unmatched wits and skill.

About Tyler “Ninja” Blevins

A former professional Halo player, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins started streaming over 5 years ago on Twitch. While his meteoric rise seemingly occurred overnight, it wasn't without hard work: Ninja streamed over 300 hours per month for years before ever seeing the spotlight shift his way. Those long hours invested allowed Ninja to take advantage of the growth of the first mainstream Battle Royale game, H1Z1, and capture the hearts and minds of gaming fans all across Twitch. Moving from H1Z1 to PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Ninja continued to sharpen his entertainment skills and his audience grew once again. PUBG – which was incredibly successful from a viewership perspective on Twitch – aided in Ninja’s early rise, going from just several hundred viewers to several thousand viewers, positioning him to take advantage of the next big BR title: Fortnite.

In early 2018, alongside the massive growth of Fortnite, Ninja became the biggest gamer in the world. Quickly rising to stream daily to over 40,000 live viewers and becoming the de facto face of the Fortnite community, Ninja employed his sheer skill and passionate personality to win the hearts of gamers across the globe.

Get Good will be available in the UK at all good bookshops including  WaterstonesAmazonWH Smith, in Ireland at Easons, Australia at Penguin Australia, New Zealand at Penguin New Zealand, South Africa at Exclusive Books, India on Amazon and the UAE at Magrudy.
