This book astonished me with the sheer concentration of fresh insights on business and entrepreneurialism, in such a small space. On more than one occasion I gasped as I came across some of the refreshingly contrarian, informal, and humanistic ways Derek chose to run and grow his business. Michael Ellsberg at Forbes
You’re gonna like this book because it’s deals with something you’re familiar with, the music business. It’s not like buying a business book written by a corporate kingpin or an entrepreneur with a personality brighter than a 100-watt bulb who could sell ice to Inuits. This is a musician, telling his story. And his story is so different from the one being told by everybody else. Reading Sivers’s book I feel like I’m listening to a soul brother. It gives me hope. Read it. It’ll inspire you too. Bob Lefsetz
Derek offers a kind of compassionate rational capitalism / business sense that cuts through all of the double-speak, corporate BS and the "build to sell" mentality that has created vast wealth, empty lives, and has produced rotten thinking throughout the business world. Paul Fountaine at Amazon
Derek Sivers’ vision is refreshing, slightly subversive (in as much as being an idealist in the business world is an act of defiance), and entirely likable. This is a guy who understands what makes him tick and quietly but steadfastly resists societal pressure to conform. I guess maybe that make Sivers some sort of rebel after all.
