Be More Keanu is an amazing book for all the fans of Keanu Reeves out there. And, yes, I am a huge fan. But you should know, this book is not a biography or a memoir; it is a book full of wisdom from Mr Reeves and his movies.
This is a fun self-help book which you can read in an hour. Under the chapters Keanu the Guru, Gentleman, Fighter, Friend, Rockstar, Comedian, Lover and Pioneer, you’ll read about various topics. While you’ll admire ‘The One’, you’ll also find helpful little tricks for a more meaningful life. Let us all #bemorekeanu, enjoy little things and live life to the fullest. Enjoy!

Be More Keanu
Keanu Reeves: actor, musician, dog lover. He’s the internet’s boyfriend. The poetic petrolhead. The guru on a surfboard. Part samurai, part samaritan. He is, very simply, ‘The One’.
‘James has been my movie guru for years and now he’s my spiritual guru too! From now on I’m going to ask myself: ‘What would Keanu do?‘
In this hilarious book of pocket philosophy, film critic and Keanu fan James King reveals what makes Mr Reeves so special. He unpacks iconic films from the Bill & Teds to the John Wicks, as well as the star’s so own free-spirited life, showing us why the great man with the great hair has all the answers.
And how everyone can #bemorekeanu.
