This book is packed with wisdom and it just makes you feel good reading it. Whether you are an entrepreneur, artist, or someone trying to figure out your next project or next theme of your life, this book is for you!

Derek does an outstanding job simplifying the lessons through his life and business experience. Here's a couple key points that hit home:

1. It should NEVER be about the money. If you're in a business or pursuing a dream for the money chase, that chase will lead you down the wrong path.

2. It's always about the customer. Whenever making a business decision, Derek always asks what would the customer say about this decision I'm making. So many cool stories of the simple small things Derek did that his customers loved.

3. Business (or lifestyle) should be based around what you want. It should be your utopia, too many entrepreneurs try to please other people, investors, etc. and lose sight of what really matter to them. Derek explains this process through his incredible business journey.

Thank you Derek for bring this book to the world!!

I added this to my list of books to read after it being recommended by Shawn Blanc's monthly book club. Although new books go to the bottom of my list, this one looked like a quick read and given Easter Monday I was able to consume within the hour. What I liked about this book was Siver's open and honest approach to running a business. To him, it is about having fun, being happy and ultimately about the customer; money didn't play a role. It is certainty a healthy approach to have in a business however sometimes I think reality can bite into this approach given our fast paced world of technology and disruption. There were many anecdotes on both his successes and failures along with lessons we can all take from it. For example, the tried and true test of trusting and verifying, to delegate but not abdicate and to make every decision based on the impact to the customer. I don't believe that this approach to business works carte blanche in every industry and idea however there are some great fundamentals for any entrepreneur to take on board with a new venture.

Three key takeaways from the book:
1. Delegation is key in the business (especially when you grow), however, with delegation trust but verify. Furthermore delegation doesn't not mean abdication.
2. If you're not saying "Hell Yeah!" to an idea/approach etc. then say no!
3. Siver's Tao of Business: Care about your customers more than about yourself and you'll do well.
Sorryyy
I used to be a fan of the self-help books, all the way from Norman Vincent Peale to Dale Csrnegie to Anthony Robbins. The point of all of the reading was to just learn about living life at a higher frequency. But I started to move away from these because they made things look so very easy, to the point where I think they are almost irrelevant to the real world.

I was brought to this book through Seth Godin's Blog. It was an excellent read to me because it seemed to be a very honest and realistic discourse. The points of inspiration in this book are not Pollyanna-ish in the least. Sivers made errors, retreated, emerged, retreated again and then emerged again. Ups and downs. No smooth path. And he relates it very clearly.

I have built a successful business over the past 7 years but I have not enjoyed the ride. I am always looking to the end. But now that things are much better, I look back and see that I could have really enjoyed the process much more, and really it is the process that is the juice for me.

Sivers distills this very very well in writing about his experiences. Reading this has shaken me up tonight and brought to the forefront of my mind thoughts that I need to make some serious changes finally that will make me happier and my business more successful.

Thank you Derek Sivers for this book!

A nice, easy and brief read that's a manifestation of distilled knowledge acquired over decades of experience starting and building CDbaby. I've always enjoyed reading Derek's writing because it's so honest. He's genuine. When most business books tell you to maximize profitability and sell when the market tells you it's the right time to sell, Derek tells you to maximize your happiness and sell when your heart tells you it's the right time. The wisdom in this book reaches beyond business and entrepreneurship. The bites of gold sprinkled throughout this text are signposts to a path that should take you on a journey of a life well lived. Highly recommended.

I truly enjoyed this one hour read. I've been telling my business owner friends for years that they don't own companies. Their companies own them. Derek Sivers is one of the few who understand that a company is not there to provide you with a place to sit all day long while your spouse and kids get old without your presence. If that is what you're into, probably not a book for you! If you want to learn to let go and let your business provide you with the kind of life you want, this is exactly the book you should read.
