About Us

About Us

Launched in 2013, we publish books by the world's 'Doers' whose stories and ideas have inspired others to go and Do. We aim to encourage action and positive change; to close the gap between where you are, and where you want to be. And we believe a small clever book can do just that.  

Beautifully designed inside and out, each book is written by an expert - an innovator, disruptor or change maker - who has taken to the stage at the annual Do Lectures event. By going beyond a 20-minute talk to a 20,000 word book, they are able to create a readable and portable digest of their unique experience, wisdom and inspiration. 

From life skills to smart working practices, the collection spans design, business, wellbeing and sustainable living with each book focusing on the ‘doing’ rather than the background theory. Concise, practical guides that make it easier to Do stuff.   

There are now 30+ books in the collection and they can be found in bookstores around the world, in different languages, and in print, digital and audio formats. A royalty from each sale goes to both the author and the Do Lectures, to help it achieve its aim of making positive change. 

You can browse our full catalogue on Issuu or download the pdf here.

As for us, we're a small team based in east London. Our studio group, EatWorkArt Ltd made this film so you can see where we are and hear a bit more about what we Do. 

We hope you like the books and find them useful. If you would like to get in touch, just email info@thedobook.co and we'll respond.
