"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
"Burnett and Evans believe there isn’t one perfect job waiting for us any more than there is one perfect solution to a design problem. Rather, our professional lives are journeys that involve trying lots of jobs in order to find the ones that make us happy. Everyone should read this book!"
—Ina Garten, author of the Barefoot Contessa cookbooks and host of Food Network's Barefoot Contessa
"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."
