Josh Roberts

Agent: Jo Bell

Josh Roberts is a 30-year-old writer, podcaster, part-qualified accountant, failed management consultant, underwhelming advertising salesman, even worse software salesman and totally abysmal Business Analyst (a role which, even now, he doesn’t really understand). In 2020 Josh published his first book, Anxious Man - a memoir about suffering from an anxiety disorder - which was widely praised for its informative yet relatable style, and for the deftness with which Josh uses humour to address challenging topics.

Praise for Anxious Man:

“So bold, clear, candid and convincing that I [he] read it one breathless sitting.” - Stephen Fry

“Beautifully written” - Reader review

“Wonderfully accessible” - Reader review

“Essential” - Reader review

Generation Drift is Josh’s second book that will publish in Spring 2022 by Yellow Kite and is an optimistic, reassuring and practical guide to navigating professional uncertainty and finding fulfilling work. Everyone can escape career creek. All they need is the right paddle.
