You Can Do Anything : The Surprising Power of a "Useless" Liberal Arts Education Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


There are no underground bunkers of supercomputers at the heart of the Uber miracle.

No cloisters of silent technicians guiding Etsy to its marketplace dominance.

Google HQ looks more like a Scandinavian parliament than a server farm.

The truth is, the tech boom has less to do with a massive explosion of silicon and aluminum, and much more to do with a massive expansion of the points of contact between humans and machines.

George Anders's YOU CAN DO ANYTHING is shaped by the insight that the leading lights at so many ostensibly "tech" firms have deep backgrounds in the humanities--history, sociology, and, yes, English.

Something about those backgrounds unlocked potential that hordes of anonymous MBAs and BSs can only wish for. Combining reportage, academic studies, close contact with tech and business luminaries, fast action-oriented distillations, and many years of experience reading the invisible magnetic waves of the business and creator worlds, Anders is writing the book that will upset (cf: "disrupt") the conversation between the STEM and the innumerate, between Mountain View and Main Street, and between parents and children.

We all have the power to think on our feet, to rally others, and to embrace the exception.

We just need to realize the power. YOU CAN DO ANYTHING points us in that direction and shoves.
