The Do Book Club

Welcome to the Do Book Club! The place where our books come to life and our community come together.

With the help of our authors, and the writers who inspired them, this is a new reading experience for creative entrepreneurs, makers and Doers.

By joining the club, you will receive a Do Book through your letterbox each month – either a new release or classic from the back catalogue (if you already have it, you can skip that month). But there’s more….

We know the creative process requires agitation, not just inspiration. So at the end of every month, we’ll host a live online conversation between our Do author and a leading writer who inspired them.  

Ignite new ideas and create lasting positive change, join as a monthly member or get one month free with an annual membership. See you in the Club!

We're sorry, but Book Club Membership is currently only available in the UK, Ireland and North America.

The Two Book Club - go one better

For those of you ready to dive deeper, choose the Two Book Club – a simple way to build a library with depth as well as breadth. Each month you’ll receive two books through the post: the Do Book plus a second title (different author and publisher) selected by our Do author.

Providing an alternative perspective on the same subject, or a beautifully rich example of the ideas and strategies in action, this companion title will enrich your thinking, and maybe even spark new ideas of your own.

This Month's Featured Titles

Do Improvise - Less push. More pause. Better results. A new approach to work (and life)

 

Every day we deal with the unplanned and the unexpected, from a broken toaster to losing (or gaining) a major client or navigating our way through a global pandemic. Our natural ability to improvise gets us through. But we feel as if we’re winging it, rather than acting with courage and conviction.

First published in 2013 and now fully updated, Robert Poynton shares his acclaimed method taught to some of the world's biggest brands and companies, including Nike, Chanel and PwC, to show us how simple improvisational skills can be applied to the everyday business of work and life. 

It's a practice that helps us to navigate life's daily obstacles and remind us how the unplanned and the unexpected can be a source of wonder and delight - leading to moments of serendipity or thoughts and ideas we wouldn't have otherwise have had. 

 

      Life Lessons from Bergson

      'No man can step into the same river twice, for it is not the same river, and he is not the same man.'

      In Life Lessons from Bergson, author Michael Foley echoes Robert Poynton when he quotes the philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus to introduce Henri Bergson whose ideas underpin Robert's approach described in Do Improvise. 

      Life Lessons from Bergson provides a neat summary of one of the greatest forgotten modern thinkers, ideas that influenced a generation of artists, writers and thinkers at the beginning of the 20th Century.

      This Month's Do Book Conversation

      Join us for this month's online event where both writers come together for a live conversation!

      This will be your chance to listen to the ideas and inspiration behind the books, along with the stories and experiences that shaped them. 

      Membership includes a ticket to each conversation plus a couple of extras if you think a friend might be interested. Non-members are also welcome to attend by purchasing one-off tickets via Eventbrite.
