Early Excitement for Bill Burnett s and Dave Evans
Designing Your Life
This [is] the career book of the next decade and . . . the go-to book that is read as a rite of passage whenever someone is ready to create a life they love.

An empowering book based on their popular class of the same name at Stanford University . . . Perhaps the book s most important lesson is that the only failure is settling for a life that makes one unhappy. With useful fact-finding exercises, an empathetic tone, and sensible advice, this book will easily earn a place among career-finding classics.
