The Do Book Company is an independent publishing house based in Shoreditch, London. They produce a series of inspirational pocket guidebooks in print and digital formats.


Books are written by speakers from the Do Lectures whose ideas have inspired others to go and Do. Their aim is to recreate that same positive change in book form – whether that’s the mastery of a new skill or craft, a simple mindshift, or a shot of inspiration to help you get started.

Each book is fairly short, about 100 pages, as it focuses on the ‘doing’ rather than the background theory. Concise, practical guides that make it easier to Do stuff. A royalty of 5% from the proceeds of each sale will go back into the Do Lectures to help it achieve its aim of making positive change.
