Publisher's Summary

When anyone can start a business (when everyone is running their career like a business), it begs a question. This is your one chance at life, you can have anything you want, what is worth doing?

Most people don't know why they're doing what they're doing. They imitate others, go with the flow, and follow paths without making their own.

They spend decades in pursuit of something that someone convinced them they should want, without realizing that it won't make them happy.

Anything You Want is a manifesto about living life, appreciating enough, and doing what matters. It's most of what fabled entrepreneur Derek Sivers learned in ten years of starting and growing a small business, compacted into something you can listen to in an hour and a half. A life worth living starts with knowing your personal philosophy of what makes you happy and what's worth doing.

    "Classic Sivers"

    This book is for the entrepreneur who is starting a business and wants to build a company that serves her clients to the fullest and grows exponentially.

    Building a business is about having the freedom to live a life that you design, and this book tells Derek's story about how he did it, and how you can do it to.

    It's a great short listen for everyone looking to succeed in life.

    Story
    "Amazing, crazy and inspiring"

    So many brilliant pieces of advice per page. I feel outraged that Derek got separated from his baby business for which he had worked so hard, by people he had helped so much. But that's real life for you, and people are usually cruel. What is out of this world is that Derek simply donated 22 million. For me Derek Sivers ia a mad genius.

    Story
    "Good to know the authors story."

    This book is a good autobiography. Or case study. But it's not a book on business advice as the situations are unique and specific to this author. It's difficult to generalise the learnings to all personality types. His narration is excellent.

    "Some Very New Thinking"

    Def a required read for maximum benefit in pursuing non-work. Makes you really take a smart and careful look at the things that matter.

    "Clarity at any cost"

    Sivers is so refreshing, keeping his eye on the ball — What's this really about?" — more than any other writer I've read on entrepreneurship.
