We’ve just signed our first international book deal to publish Building a Second Brain….in the United Kingdom!

The initial wave of pre-orders in the United States has turned publishing heads around the world, and my literary agency has reported a surge in interest and enthusiasm for BASB in multiple countries.

We’ve signed with Profile, whose UK catalogue includes such bestsellers as:

  • Atul Gawande’s The Checklist Manifesto
  • Ryan Holiday’s The Daily Stoic
  • Julia Cameron’s The Artist’s Way
  • Robert Greene’s The 48 Laws of Power

(I’m incredibly honored to be in the company of these greats).

Once again, I want to send a signal to our new partners and to all the international publishers who are watching closely to see how this book performs outside the U.S.

If you are located in the United Kingdom, I humbly ask you to consider pre-ordering my book below:


This deal means we will have far better distribution in the UK (and Commonwealth countries), in more formats, and with better shipping options versus having to order from U.S. booksellers.

We’ll announce which Commonwealth countries will receive distribution as soon as we know, but for now I can confirm that this includes… INDIA!

Historically I’ve had more customers of my ebooks from India than anywhere else, even the U.S.

I know there are so many people in India who are eager to dig deeper in the digital economy – and it moves me deeply to be able to make these ideas available locally. You can pre-order on Amazon India using the link below:

We are focusing our initial efforts on Amazon as they’re usually earliest to open pre-orders. But as soon as more retail outlets become available, I’ll share them with you via this newsletter and the new Building a Second Brain website.

As a reminder: All pre-orders made before Nov. 30, 2021, in any country and any format, qualify for our first pre-order bonus: a virtual workshop covering the entire Building a Second Brain Method in 3 jam-packed hours. Submit your proof of purchase here to get the details and reserve your spot.

Thank you for being patient, for believing in and trusting me, and for jumping into action when it matters most. I am completely dedicated to making Second Brains available to every person on the planet who wants one.


P.S. I’ve created a series with all book-related updates in chronological order and in one place. You can use it to get caught up on the latest news, and hopefully to learn from my successes and mistakes alike as I learn in public.
