Reviews

#1 New York Times Bestseller

"Life has questions. They have answers...Learn how to find a fulfilling career...learn how to better navigate life's big moment decisions and kill your 'wicked problems dead."
--The New York Times

"The prototype for a happy life...Burnett and Evans show how to apply Stanford's famous design principles to finding your place in the world, as a recent graduate or mid-career."
--NPR's Brian Lehrer

"Designing Your Life walks readers through the process of building a satisfying, meaningful life by approaching the challenge the way a designer would. Experimentation. Wayfinding. Prototyping. Constant iteration. You should read the book. Everyone else will."
--Daniel Pink, bestselling author of Drive

"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."
--David Kelley, Founder of IDEO

"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."
--Publishers Weekly
