Book Synopsis



The acclaimed author of The Happiness Track maps a bold and fresh, science-backed path to break the bonds of self-destructive patterns and beliefs and live a fuller, more authentic life.

"Sovereign is one of the most influential books I have read in years. It's loaded with ideas that will recharge your life and change the way you think and act right away. By far the most highlighted book in my library!"
-- Tom Rath, #1 New York Times best-selling author of How Full Is Your Bucket? and Strengthsfinder 2.0

In the post-pandemic era of war, polarization, and economic and environmental challenges, is it any wonder that we're questioning a lot of things we thought we knew? We're ready to reevaluate what's important and rethink how we are living our lives. We need a new perspective--and acclaimed psychologist Emma Seppälä offers one.

Sovereign delivers a radically new and enlightening message, made for this age of suffering and confusion. It's a manifesto that awakens us to all the areas in our life where we have subjugated ourselves to self-destructive beliefs and tendencies. And it's a roadmap to reclaim our full psychological sovereignty so we can live free, happy, and authentic lives.

Seppälä's voice is raw and honest, laugh-out-loud funny, and deeply reflective, delving into topics ranging from the nature of self-loathing to the nuances of relationship as she shows us how to unbind ourselves in every area:

  • In our working life and our family life
  • In our physical health and our emotional well-being
  • In our minds, our spirits, and our connection to our very selves

Backed by psychological data, neuroscience, and empirically validated methodologies, Sovereign takes us further along the path of personal transformation than we may ever have ventured before--and gives us the true freedom to live life to our fullest potential.
