Dave Evans, Designing Your Life
Bookshop Santa Cruz welcomes Dave Evans and his #1 New York Times bestseller, Designing Your Life, a book that shows you how to design a life you can thrive in, at any age or stage. In this book, Bill Burnett and Dave Evans show us how design thinking can help us create a life that is both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are. The same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products, and spaces can be used to design and buildyour career and your life, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of surprise.
" Designing Your Lifewalks 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
