Anything You Want

Derek Siver's blog is one of my all-time favorites. Of late, he had sort of gone dark (pot calling kettle black). So, I was tickled to get an email from the Domino Project that they were releasing Anything You Want.

I immediately ordered it, and you should too.

It's ostensibly a business book, but don't let that deter you. There are no matrices, graphs or other MBA baloney here. It's more of a vision of what business could be when the soul hasn't been surgically removed and customers actually do come first (no, they usually don't mean it when they say that).

If you have no interest in business, there are some good Life Lessons in there as well. The Hell Yeah rule is by itself worth the price of the book. The biggest sources of annoyance in my life right now could have been avoided by simply following that rule at a certain decision point. Sadly, one of them was made after I read that post (Doh!) but forgot about it - so I'm grateful for the reminder.

There's lots of other good stuff in there as well. I'm not going to tell you about it though. It's affordable and a quick read. It will make you laugh and it will make you think.

Go buy one, will ya?
