Learning by doing

You want to start working out more and you know the first place you’ll go… The library! There you’ll be able to read tons of books on bicep curls and hiking and high-intensity interval training and you’ll be in shape in no time.

Wait, something’s not right. 

Just because you’ve read a book on bicep curls doesn’t mean you can do a bicep curl. Reading doesn’t make you any better at doing things. 

That’s why Pique helps you go beyond reading. We help you do the book.

Why is “doing the book” helpful? 

Pique is like if you could directly ask the author, “what do I need to know and how do I use that in my life?” We’ve worked with authors to develop experiences that show you how insights from their books apply directly to your life. 

Pique lets you live a book’s insights in your life. With Pique, you’ll break out of your routines with hands-on activities co-created with authors that help you internalize the concepts via active learning.

Rather than learning about how subtraction is overlooked, you’ll do activities created by Leidy Klotz to show you how you’re overlooking subtraction right now. Instead of reading about the best way to make a change, you’ll make a plan to utilize fresh starts with Katy Milkman. You’ll go beyond reading about uncomfortable conversations and you’ll prepare to have them with Dolly Chugh.

With our interactive experiences, key points go beyond being words on a page. Pique will help you apply these ideas to your everyday life. And, after trying them out, you’ll see a clearer path to making those beneficial changes going forward.

How long does it take?

Reading a full nonfiction book can take 3 hours. And it can take much longer when you’re really trying to internalize all of the great points the author is making. Pique will help you learn the key insights and put them into practice in just 5 minutes per experience.

What kind of books can you expect?

Nonfiction is chock full of insights on how to grow, change, and become a better version of yourself. But, those insights don’t mean anything if you don’t actually see them play out in your own life.

Our team of behavioral scientists has curated a library of powerful, science-based nonfiction for you to learn from. Whether you’ve already read these books or are discovering them for the first time, Pique gives you the opportunity to turn knowledge and insights into real-life experience.

We’ll help you find your next must-read and we’ll make it into a must-do.
