A former monk and social media star has released a new book.

Over the past three years, Jay Shetty has released a range of motivational videos one of which was the most watched video on Facebook last year, with over 360 million views.

His social media following totals over 35 million, his daily videos have amassed more than 7 billion views, and his podcast.

In his new book, Shetty draws on his time as a monk in the Vedic tradition to show readers how they can clear the roadblocks to their 'potential and power'. Drawing on wisdom and his own rich experiences in the ashram, Think Like a Monk reveals his practical and accessible steps, how to 'overcome negative thoughts and habits, and live life with peace and purpose'.
