Worth listening to just for Sivers' voice alone
A story about how Derek Sivers accidentally built a business that ended up becoming one of the most profitable in the music industry. Also, the book contains short personal development essays every second chapter. Apart from the soothing sound of Derek Sivers' voice, these were my favourite parts of the book
Worth reading if you're a business person or wanting to get into the world of business

Exactly what I needed
Really glad that Derek read this himself - it wouldn’t have been the same any other way.
Recommended to anyone who is stuck, who has a million ideas, who feels like they “should” be further along than they are, for anyone who needs permission or for anyone who feels like they are pulled back on a massive slingshot but can’t get it to release.
I hope that the world produce more people who create businesses in this way. I intend to be one of them.

Best entrepreneurial book i've ever read. no joke
What did you like most about Anything You Want?
I've listened to this book 3 times. It's the best business book for creative people who just want to do good things and don't give a shit about the entire business world - but end up creating within the business world. It's fantastic. I'd like to meet Derek and have a cup of tea. Very well narrated and each lesson/story is just a beautiful insight into his world and how CD baby grew, but the values that he stood by throughout the process.
So much heart and soul!!!

I could listen to this a thousand times.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yup. He has been there, done that, got things right, got things wrong. This is the whole journey from go to whoa, what happened there? It's honest and humble and marvellously valuable. Wall-to-wall insights told as an engaging story.
What other book might you compare Anything You Want to, and why?
4 hour Work Week, Choose Yourself by James Altucher. Similar genre. This book is more personal and that's a good thing.
Which character – as performed by Derek Sivers – was your favourite?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The end, I moved my phone out of my pocket and went back to the start of the book. It's consistently enthralling. I have listened to this book a lot of times and have never been tempted to skip parts of it.
Any additional comments?
I'd love to have a beer with Derek.
