Anything You Want: 40 Lessons for a New Kind of Entrepreneur by Derek Sivers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I came across Derek Sivers from the Tim Ferriss podcast. He gave a brilliant interview about a year ago where he talked about his start-up, CDBaby, and the decisions that allowed the company and himself to be successful (while defining what ‘successful’ means). Most of the information from that interview is contained within this book, some of the stories are pretty much word for word so I suspect they’ve been told them a few times by now. It’s easy to criticise the length of this book, it comes in at a slip of 88 pages, but given the podcast was free and I enjoyed both, I consider this as payment for both. I’ve bought a couple of Tim Ferriss books using the same rationale!
