I explore the art, science & craft of living life well.
During my 8 years lecturing this subject at Cambridge University,
I wrote The Rough Guide to Happiness for Penguin Books,
and 100 weekly columns as ‘Dr FeelGood’ for The Times newspaper.


Before being invited by The Royal Society to co-host their first-ever conference
on The Science of Well-being, (with contributions from two Nobel Laureates),
I was fortunate to raise £150,000
so I could create and run the Trailblazers Mentoring Charity
that befriends Young Offenders in English prisons: www.trailblazersmentoring.org.uk
Trail-Blazers is still going strong today, 20 years on.
And I was privileged to interview-at-length 100 of the world’s leading performers
in many walks of life: from education and the creative arts,
to special-forces, business and sport. This was my YoungLives project.
I asked: “How do you make progress in life, and how do you enjoy the journey?”

My four new Guide Books are co-written with my remarkable friend,
King's College London University Medical Professor, Richard Sullivan, MD, PhD

Kind words about Nick's books…

Military Police Lieutenant Colonel Maria Holliday,
who won the Queen’s Gallantry Medal:

It’s fascinating… It all makes perfect sense.
To understand your own needs is the first step
in understanding the needs of others…
especially when the chips are down.

Kevin McKellar, the former Headteacher of Hendon School,
awarded the OFSTED ‘Excellent’ three years running:

I urge every school to consider working with
Nick’s HotIron-KnowHow e-books & audio-books.
Their practical suggestions are proving to be invaluable.

Former President of the American Psychological Association,
and 50 years a Stanford University Professor, Philip Zimbardo:

Rarely have I experienced a better blend of wit, wisdom and compassion
presented in an engagingly refreshing writing style.
I am sure you will enjoy it and benefit fully from its
'spot-on' relevance to contemporary life.

I was deeply privileged to make a psychological documentary
about the 9 young men at Cambridge University
who fought Oxford University in ‘The Blues Boxing Match’.
This was the 100th anniversary of the fixture,
the score was drawn, and this would be the Century’s decider.
It is the one & only time the Blues Match has ever been filmed.
