We’re a new type of publishing company.

We publish fully digital Guides to high-stakes, complex subjects. Our titles and our product are created by experts and designed to improve with community contribution over time.

We work for you.

The only way we’ll ever make money is if you give it to us. No advertising or selling clicks. The way we see it, our job is to give you a map so you can achieve your goals while being as informed as possible. If we can do that, we hope you’ll pay for it—and support our writers.

Each Guide is a collaborative effort.

We’re testing a number of new ways to allow contributors—and you—to suggest improvements to Guides so they continually improve for everyone. Some of these features are by invitation.

If you’re interested in helping us improve our content or Guide features, we’d love to chat with you in our Slack group. We ask everyone to fill out a (very) short application so we can introduce new community members in groups. We hope to see you there!

Are you a writer?

We’re glad to discuss ideas with authors (or agents) interested in helping readers understand complex systems and solve important problems in their lives and careers.
