From Zero to Book in 5 Days

A Book Sprint is a collaborative process where a book is produced from the ground up in just 5 days. But even more important, this collaborative process captures the knowledge of a group of subject-matter experts in a manner that would be nearly impossible using traditional methods. The result at the end of the Book Sprint is a high-quality finished book in digital and print-ready formats, ready for distribution.

Book Sprints, Ltd, is a team of facilitators, book-production professionals, and illustrators specialized in Book Sprint facilitation and rapid book production. Our organization developed the original methodology and has refined it since 2008 through the facilitation of more than 100 Book Sprints. Topics have ranged from corporate documentation to industry guides, government policies, technical documentation, white papers, academic research papers, and activist manuals.

We have facilitated great Book Sprints for Cisco, F5, OpenStack, The World Bank, USAID, GIZ, IDEA, Ashoka, JISC, PLoS, Mozilla, Transparency International, The Engine Room, Heinrich Böll Stiftung Nigeria, UNECA and others.
