Format: Paperback
I am a coach and have worked in the leadership mentoring world for many years. I can't remember how many coaching/leadership/self improvement/business books I've read. From Jim Collins to Jim Loehr. I've read them all. And, the more you read, the more you understand that the messages are similar. The fundamental theories are the same and a thread of common sense runs through them all which isn't rocket science.

However, when I came across "Do Nothing", I was intrigued. During my coaching training days, I'd read one book which had hit home. Tim Gallwey's Inner Game of Tennis had one very strong message which was "let it be". And, "Do Nothing" seemed to be on the same track.

This book is a story. It's a story of Damian's journey of discovery. No theories, no models, no rules, just 3 principles which, when you understand them, open up a new world which is easier, happier and more peaceful. It's an easy read but the messages are deep. The author has a way of making simple connections which resonated with me. I've learned more about myself from reading this book than any other.

A very enjoyable read, full of stories and anecdotes that give a taste of how the Principles are at work in the different areas of our lives. This is one book I would be confident in giving to someone who is interested in experiencing a better quality of life, but had not yet been exposed to the principles.

Damian's writing style is easy to follow, and his understanding of the Principles shows through. He respectfully honours the teachers that came before him, by referencing and pointing towards their great works.

This book will fit in nicely with your other Principles based material.

I am so enjoying reading Mark's book and felt I had to write about it even before I've finished it! It's a really wonderful introduction to The 3 Principles, is easy to read and is already helping me to deepen my understanding.

People often misunderstand what 'do nothing' means regarding the 3P's and it doesn't mean 'sit back and take no action'. o find out what it really means, you must read this book as Mark clearly explains about the nature of thought and I love that.

I highly recommend this to understand more about how your mind, consciousness and thought are inextricably linked and their role in your creating your own experiences.

Format: Paperback
In a nutshell the message of the book is WE LIVE INSIDE OUT.

OK,you've heard about this before, righ? BUT...

This is not the kind of book that teaches you (rules, concepts, steps), it is a book that TOUCHES you.
It is not the kind of book that explains to you what peace of mind or freedom from outside circumstances look like with graphics and equations and a lot of long words (and words in italics too), instead of that, the author seems to have hidden a happiness virus somewhere in the text (in the white spaces I believe...) and once you open the book you have no choice but to get infected with it (CAUTION: it is very, very CONTAGIOUS!!!)

I mean, there's some misterious quality in DO NOTHING! that makes you aware of many things you probably forgot. Things that you may know at a intelectual level, but (as you probably have noticed by now)life is not an intelectual matter and that's where this book is so practical (besides charming and well written and with a lot of wonderful real life example and quotes from great people like Jack Pransky, George Pransky, Roger Mills... to name a few)DO NOTHING goes straight to your heart (ishin denshin as they would say in Zen), it is a piece of music as much as a written text.

Enjoy it! And keep the peace-happiness-whatever virus ALIVE. Be contagious!

What an inspiring read, `Do nothing' by Mr Smyth was simply brilliant. I felt that I was able to really relate to what he was saying and fully understood the explanation of the 3 principles. I would recommend this book to anyone who is thinking about alternative ways to finding fulfillment. It's simple, interesting and above all fun to read.

As someone who has travelled a similar road at a similar time, this book really resonated for me. It's simply but insightfully written and I loved that each chapter looked at different areas of life, parenting, relationships and so on, according to D's stories, wisdom and also the stories of a number of other eminent figures in the three principles. What I loved most is that every chapter consistently points to a simpler way of living, like the facets of a diamond making up the beautiful whole. It's light and easy to read too. If you'd like to see life slightly differently then I highly recommend it!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been interested in the 3 principles for the past year. At first it was the intellectual 'getting it' where as now I feel I'm 'living it' and feel amazing for it. I got this book mainly as I saw Jack Pransky had written the forward. Jacks book 'Somebody Should have Told Us' really accelerated my understanding of the principles, I felt it was written in an easier to understand way than say Syd Banks works. 'Do Nothing' has taken this even further and it written as if one of my mates was explaining things to me. So rather than grappling with understanding Damian storytelling has helped me come up with new insights and deepen my overall knowledge with minimum effort from me (if you enjoy something its easy, right). My take on the principles is why complicate something that is very simple & I'm glad Damians is the same. I'll now head back to Syds works and enjoy the insights I gain from them with my greater level of understanding..Thanks Damian.
