Description - Designing Your Life by Bill Burnett

Change your life in 2020 with the simple, scientifically proven method that has already worked for thousands of people.

'Life has questions. They have answers' New York Times

At last, a book that shows you how to build - design - a life you can thrive in, at any age or stage. A well-designed life means a life well-lived. Many of us are still looking for an answer to that perennial question, 'What do I want to be when I grow up?'

Stanford innovators 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 and where we are, our careers and our age. Designing Your Life puts forward the idea that the same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products and spaces can be used to build towards a better life and career by a design of your own making.

' Designing Your Life teaches you how to change what's not working by turning ideas on their head' Viv Groskop, author of How To Own The Room

'An empowering book based on their popular class of the same name at Stanford University...this book will easily earn a place among career-finding classics' Publishers Weekly
