Vlogger Marcus Butler with book

By Hollie-Anne Brooks

We've read Hello Life! and let us tell you, it gets pretty deep.

We recently got our hands on Marcus Butler's new book. Hello Life! is part lifestyle guide and part autobiography and is filled with Marcus' experiences including dealing with grief and YouTube success. We delved into the book and actually found some pretty deep and meaningful things. Which got us thinking, is Marcus Butler the modern day Socrates? 

We've devised a quiz to find out if you know your Marcus Butler from your Karl Marx...
