Emma is an ace researcher and highly skilled communicator. This book will be massively useful for anybody who’s looking to do life better. I know I will read it, and help promote it.Dan Harris, Good Morning America host & bestselling author of 10% Happier

 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

“It is no exaggeration to say this book is life-changing. I couldn’t put it down. Emma Seppälä gives us wisdom and guidance in the form of unforgettable human stories of fallibility and courage, of astonishing scientific research (for any skeptics among us), of humor and vulnerability, and inspiration that is nothing short of poetry. This book is a gift.” Faith Salie, Emmy-winning contributor to CBS News Sunday Morning, panelist on NPR’s Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me!, and author of Approval Junkie 

Sovereign is an insightful and entertaining guide to living life on your own terms—backed by science, spiced with humor, and laced with love.” Dr. Jennifer Aaker, General Atlantic Professor at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and best-selling author of Humor, Seriously

“With clear stories, science-backed skills, inspiring poetry, and gentle humor, Emma Seppälä invites us to explore the key experience of ‘sovereignty,’ a state of clarity and well-being beyond simply our capacity to be self-governing. In this illuminating exploration of the essential ingredients of a resilient mind, rewarding relationships, and a meaningful life, we are empowered to develop and strengthen this liberating way of being grounded in our lives. Reading this book will be a gift that keeps on giving for all those in your life, including you.” Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., New York Times best-selling author of Mindsight, Aware, and IntraConnected 

“With a science-backed approach and stories from her own experience, Emma opens the door to greater freedom and happiness as she skillfully shows us how to reclaim our sovereignty from the variety of thoughts, habits, beliefs, and distractions that otherwise keep us bound.” Sharon Salzberg, New York Times best-selling author of Lovingkindness and Real Life 

“For many, modern society has separated us from ourselves. Sovereign is a deeply personal narrative that offers us a path to recognize our own agency and empowers us to reach our greatest potential.” James R. Doty, M.D., Director of CCARE and New York Times and international best-selling author of Into the Magic Shop and Mind Magic

Sovereign is a gift to your inner spirit, a salve for anyone yearning to unleash their best self, and a masterpiece of insight about how to show up for life. No matter your background or circumstances, Sovereign helps you tap into your greatest potential and fan your own inner flame—today and every day from here on out.” April Rinne, global futurist and author of Flux: 8 Superpowers for Thriving in Constant Change
