About the Author
Steven Bartlett is the 28-year-old founder of the social media marketing agency, Social Chain. From a bedroom in Manchester, this university drop-out built what would become one of the world's most influential social media companies when he was just 21-years-old, before taking his company public at 27 with a market valuation of almost £200m.
He was born in a village in Botswana, Africa and grew up as a young black man in an all-white area in the southwest of England. He never had money or good grades, but he did have an unshakeable sense of self-belief and a remarkably unconventional perspective on the world.
Steven is widely considered one of Europe's most talented and accomplished young entrepreneurs and philosophical thinkers.
His podcast The Diary Of A CEO has become one of the top lifestyle, business and mindset podcasts in Europe and Steven has accumulated over 2 million followers online.

From the moment I laid eyes on the Happy, Sexy dust cover of this book, I knew this was one I'd need to pull out all the stops for. I decided to cook us a romantic home cooked meal for two (a 4.5/10 chicken risotto for those interested), to really give us a chance to get acquainted.
They say beauty is only dust cover deep, so I was looking forward to opening up the pages on this one and seeing what it had to offer... I was not disappointed.
The wine and the conversation flowed (I was more the listener/drinker/eater than the talker, understandably). I opened up about my feelings of imposter syndrome, crippling procrastination and complete and utterly lack of direction, and was met with loving reassurance that 99% of the harm is caused in my head, that I needed to use my 5% brainpower to harness the 95% consistency I was capable of, and that I should aspire to be the happiest, most grateful juggler I could be (no more than 14 balls however..)
We only got halfway through our time together this evening, but I can already tell this book is the one; the right swipe on Tinder, the DM drop on Instagram, the unsolicited genital pic on Snapchat... true love in the 21st century.
I consider myself a gentleman, so we didn't round off the evening by ripping off the dust cover and finishing up page 264 in bed, but rather curled up by the fire pondering the wise and stoic words of Marcus Aurelius:
"Soon you will have forgotten the world, and the world will have forgotten you"
While this may be true, I certainly won't be forgetting this book in a hurry.
But....the guy talks a lot about how great he is. How rich. How successful. How people will pay £90,000 for an hour of his time. He is a brilliant public speaker. Incredible CEO. Oh and how hot his body is.
I just felt it was a shame as he possibly needs to take some of the advice he is dishing out and not feel the need to emphasise how great he is all the time.
It might not be him. It might be an editing decision. I don't know. I just had to try to ignore it and not get annoyed by it.
Because there is a lot of great stuff in the book.
I have been following Steven Bartlett on Instagram for as long as I can remember, I can honestly say his IG content and his podcast “Diary of a CEO” is enough to make you want to change your life, so obviously I pre-ordered this book months in advance and all I can say is, I was not disappointed, it was worth the wait, I literally finished it within two days!
As you can see in my pictures, I have decided to reread the book and I am highlighting critical points- It is a book that you can refer back to, a book for life and I recommend taking notes, as I believe it can apply to anyone!
I have read A LOT of books and there are not many non-bullshit self help books out there that explore numerous topics; if you’re serious about becoming self-aware then READ THIS!
It’s one of the books that you wish your parents had read, haha! Enjoy!
I couldn’t put the book down and took the day off work to give it the time and recognition it deserves. If you thought the podcasts were insightful and just wait until you read the words in the book. I can see the time and energy that went into this book and I’ve came out the other end learning so much and even questioning myself further for self improvement. I’ve learnt so much it’s unreal, as a 24 year old that quit my job last year to pursue my own business endeavours I can only thank Steven for writing this book. It’s left an impact on me that’s going to last and I will always keep this book handy with notes / and highlights within.
I can’t recommend this book enough and I’m ordering a few more copies to share it with friends.
Honestly one of the best and fulfilling books I’ve ever read.
Currently I am half way through and believe me, I had high expectations for this book after being a loyal subscriber to Steven’s podcast and a follower on his Instagram. This book has exceeded all my expectations!
I could write a book about how much I love this book but let me just tell you a few of my stand out favourites so far.
A couple of things, well a lot of things really resonated with me such as ‘the happiness we are pursuing is the pursuit of happiness itself’. It’s something that is right there in front of us every single day. Say we want to buy something, for example a new dog, we aren’t buying the dog we are buying the feeling and the excitement we get when we think about the dog, we are buying the emotion.
Its even more obvious when we look back on our childhood, we pursue happiness in new toys as marketing has created that need for us, yet when we finally got that toy, we play with it what? a week?and then that feeling of the pursuit has gone and so therefore so has the emotion that goes along with that.
I found what he said about his experience with his ex when he said ‘the damage it would do to her felt like it would somehow repair a wound somewhere inside me’ a really thought provoking statement. It’s known that hurt people hurt people yet they do it anyway without realising hurting other people won’t heal themselves.
I also absolutely love how Steven has challenged the societal norm continuously throughout his book. He considers all perspectives and doesn’t just accept the way society says we ‘should’ live without questioning it from many different angles.
Anyways, I have never read a book that has really emotionally intellectually challenged me to such an extent. All I can say is that I’m so glad I am reading it now as a 20 year old female who is on the adventure of her first business which is a mental health app that is being released in April!
So so grateful for this! Thank you to Steven and all of his team !!!
