Reading is like a software update for the brain

What we read


We choose themes based on member recommendations, trends and stuff we're really curious about. We make an effort to continually mix it up.

Favourite themes so far: Altered (mental) states, work smart, race & identity, habits, gender, AI, cryptocurrency, fast fashion, startups & undercover jobs.


Most months we pull together a short-list of contemporary non-fiction books under a theme, on average 250-350 pages long. Occasionally we do a one-off collaboration with an author like Seth Godin, Ryan Holiday or Kate Raworth.


How we read

Every week members are nudged to remind them where they should be in the book.

A lot of members will read 1 x RBC book a month 1 book of their choice. Some members are now reading 3-4 books a month.


Power Hours & Podcast

Every Sunday evening we prompt members to switch off their wifi and put in a solid session.

Members are now meeting up to do this in person at different times in cafes, bars and parks: 30 mins read + 30 mins chat.

Check out our new members made monthly podcast.
