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.

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?

um, Derek!


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.
