John is currently busy working on a new book with publisher Pan Macmillan, which is all about self-reliance and positive psychology; exploring how wisdom gleaned from those in extremis can be applied in everyday life.

He also regularly writes blog pieces, product reviews, or contributes towards magazine articles, and is always interested to discuss and develop new ideas or projects with like-minded brands, organisations or individuals. Enjoy a few examples of recent collaborations below.
