Sam’s best selling debut book, Be More Pirate, Or How To Take On The World And Win, is published by Penguin Random House in the UK, Simon & Schuster in the US, and others around the world.

From rogues to role models: Be More Pirate reveals the radical strategies of Golden Age pirates, and updates them into clear solutions for making your mark on the 21st Century. Be More Pirate draws parallels between the strategy and innovation of legends like Henry Morgan and Anne Bonney with modern day rebels, like Elon Musk, Malala and Blockchain, and reveals how to apply their tactics to life and work today. Voted Financial Times Book of the Month, Shortlist's Read of the Week and No 1 BestSeller on Amazon.

This isn’t a book, it’s a movement.
— Tom Goodwin, Head of Innovation at Publicis and author of Digital Darwinism
