<h2>Reviews:</h2>
  <p>
  “I love this book! Derek is a phenomenal teacher. Whether detailing the fascinating rise of CD Baby, or explaining catastrophic (but common) founder mistakes, 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.”

  “<em>Anything You Want</em> is a business book like no other. Derek Sivers built a business a different way, a human way. He did it with no investment and a series of apparently crazy principles. And they work. They worked for him and they might work for you. A brilliant book.”
