Publisher's Summary

A crucial intervention for a society heading in the wrong direction, offering a new way to live in the modern age. Read by the author.

We are losing ourselves. We're chasing the wrong things, asking the wrong questions and polluting our minds. It's time to stop, it's time to resist and it's time to rethink the fundamental social blueprint that our lives are built upon.

As an 18-year-old, black, broke, lonely, insecure, university drop-out, from a bankrupt family, I wrote in my diary that I wanted to be a 'Happy Sexy Millionaire' by the age of 25. By 25 I was a multi-millionaire having created a business worth over 300 million dollars. Ironically, in achieving everything I set out to, I learnt that I was wrong about almost everything.... The world had lied to me. It lied to me about how you attain fulfilment, love and success, why those things matter and what those words actually mean.  

In this book, I'll dismantle the most popular, unaddressed lies about happiness that we've been led to believe. I'll expose the source of these lies, examine the incentives that fuel them and replace them with a practical set of scientifically proven and unconventional ideas that will help you to live a truly fulfilled life, a life full of the love you seek and the success you deserve.

Significant!

I’ve been allowing myself to consume what Steven put out and I’m the better for it. This book like his social media posts are so insightful and worth the take it takes to read or listen. I’m happy I listened to it and you will too!

Round 2 Here We Go

Loved how fluidly the book moves from one chapter to the next. Havimg Steven personally narrate about events in his life and his feelings about said events in such a forward and matter-of-fact sense makes it feel as real as it truly is. He gives very valid points and throughout the entire thing subconciously coaches you into seeing the world a different way. For someone who already is somewhat conscious of the things he talks about, it serves as an amplifier by many degrees. Definetely a must read for absolutely anyone who desires to learn how to live life to its fullest extent. Here goes the second read!

Unapologetically human

A great modern journey in the life of a successful and surprisingly caring young man in the 21st century.

A lot of social vaporware are addressed in this book in a genuine and articulated way by the author himself.

First discovered Steven on his ted talk more than 5 years ago and it’s amazing to hear about some of the things he experienced while getting how it shaped his own philosophy.

A great Read/Listen

A Masterpiece for now and all time

Steven’s book is what the world needs the most. The wisdom that has been available all along, but disregarded and forgotten. The book lays out the building blocks one needs to dismantle and examine their life. Undeniably, it is for the brave.

A lot of the wisdom you will have heard before, but not packaged and presented like this. He presents it in a succinct matter that is impossible to deny the raw truth of the words. If you dare let the words in you will find yourself staring at your life with clarity of the excuses and trivialities. It makes you want to squirm at times, but you can’t un-hear what you’ve heard, leaving you with the responsibility to yourself to either face what you know or accept a life of being complacent.

His book is personal, touching with such pure honesty. This man gives a damn and you feel it in every word.

Steven, you were meant to write this book. And thank you a million times over.

Listeners, he presents you the instructions for life, now the question is do you have the guts to do it.

BOOM! Game changer

Amazingly simple to understand and I will take lots of life lessons from Steve’s words. The brutal honesty he delivers without the filtered lens is refreshing.

Best book I have read so far

I have followed Steven on linkedin and instagram for a while now and his wisdom on both platforms resonate with my internal compass of how I see the world. Themes are constant and clear on all his platforms and now this book. I can summarize this book in one sentence he said "I am a guy and not a label". That statement encompasses the struggle between creating who we think we should be and what the world want us to be.

I enjoyed how fast he talked although in a particular chapter he went too fast and reduced pace Lol... which is human. It made the book more engaging than other audiobooks I have read recently.

Chapter 19 was it for me. It brings that soul crushing reality which every aware or unaware human needs, to wake up to whatever 'call' we think we have. I love facing realities and this book puts them in perspective.

Thank you Steven Bartlett for this wonderful piece. Always a fan and hope to learn more from you! 🙏🏾

Absolutely amazing

My gosh where do I start. As a 27 year old Mum firstly I want to express that this book needs to be read by every young person in the world! Steven clearly has such a way with words, everything hits home and makes many other personal development books I’ve read seem meaningless. Chapter 19 hit the hardest. You’ve inspired me to really look at my life and work out where I want to go. I will now be purchasing the hard copy of the book as I feel I want to highlight and tab many pages and sections to refer to for the rest of my life. Simply amazing Steven!

A truly wonderful inspirational interesting read.

I would definitely recommend this read,
There were so many “ light bulb” moments for me.
His outlook, his experience, his empathetic nature is lovely.
His philosophy on life at such a young age is admiral.
He has learned life lessons and is kind enough to share them 🙏

Life Changing

All i can say is buy this book! Listened to this in two days. I was hesitant buying this book considering the cringy title, Steven explains this and it all makes sense. There were so man eye opening insights, that really got me thinking.
Steven uses lots of real life examples and for the first time i can relate to a really successful entrepreneur. Steven drops some cold hard truths that were hard to hear but necessary.
Steven is a great narrator, which made the book easy to listen too.
This book isn’t you’r classic hustle hustle self help bs book. You need this!

Honest and genuine down to a tee, superb book. Will listen again 100%.

Money and likes really isn’t everything it seems. But time is! Use it wisely. Great read.
