InAnything You Want, Sivers details his journey and the lessons learned along the way of creating CD Baby and building a business close to his heart. His less-scripted approach to business educates readers to feel empowered to follow their own dreams.
Originally a professional musician, Derek Sivers created CD Baby, once the largest seller of independent music on the web. Since 2008, Derek has travelled the world, nurturing creative endeavours, like Muckwork, his newest company where teams of efficient assistants help musicians do their 'uncreative dirty work'. Derek writes regularly on creativity, entrepreneurship and music on his blog.
One of the best hours you'll ever spend will be reading Derek
Sivers's new book...Anything You Want * Forbes *
I love this book! Derek is the entrepreneur's entrepreneur. Just as important, perhaps more so--he is a phenomenal teacher. Whether detailing the fascinating rise of CDBaby, explaining catastrophic (but common) founder mistakes, or teaching me about relational databases in two minutes using analogies, he makes the complex simple. Moreover, he makes it all actionable. If you want a true manifesto, a guidebook with clear signposts, and a fun ride you'll return to again and again, you have it here in this book. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. -- Tim Ferriss
