Praise for You Can Do Anything

"Utterly fascinating and massively important. George Anders peers into his signature crystal ball, and paints a portrait of the future of work that's as compelling as it is provocative."―Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals

"Anders' latest book is a must-read for liberal arts students and grads. Packed with relatable stories and role models, it not only inspires you with stories about what liberal arts grads have done with their educations, but also gives you a clear map to find your own path in the world."
Laszlo Bock, author of Work Rules!, former SVP of People Operations at Google, and CEO of Humu, Inc.

"Anders shows us precisely why majors like Philosophy, History, and Anthropology teach the skills employers can't outsource to robots and software... students should feel not only reassurance or permission but an actual obligation to go there, for their own sake, and for the sake of us all.'"
Julia Lythcott-Haims, author of How to Raise an Adult and former Dean of Freshmen at Stanford University

"I could have used this book several times in my life. When I graduated from Northwestern with a degree in linguistics... and even today, when I'm the parent of high school junior intent on studying poetry and modern dance in college. You Can Do Anything will inspire a new generation to greater heights, while delivering a much-needed wake-up call to campus leaders and employers."―Daniel H. Pink, New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

"The career stories of liberal arts graduates provide the best argument for the value of their education. George Anders, in his thoughtful new book You Can Do Anything, tells these stories in a compelling manner, weaving the threads of their education into the tapestry of their lives, demonstrating over and over why employers should seek out these unique thinkers. An interesting read and valuable for any liberal arts graduate or recruiter!"―Dr. Katharine Brooks, author of You Majored in What? and Executive Director of the Vanderbilt University Career Center

"As a parent about to send her second child off to college--this one has a theater major--George Anders' book was not just a good show topic, but a balm to my soul."
Krys Boyd, host of KERA's "Think"

"George Anders has provided a compelling and decisive answer to the recurring question, 'What is the value proposition of a liberal arts education?' Students should have this book in their backpack or on their iPads. So should their parents, teachers, and our policy-makers."
Frederick M. Lawrence, CEO of Phi Beta Kappa Society

"At the present moment... it is only liberal arts majors who have to wonder whether all of the articles and books promoting the marketability of their chosen discipline should make them more or less uneasy about the future. Two additions to this growing field have appeared just in time to try to sooth the post-graduation panic.. [including] You Can Do Anything.... [Anders] suppl[ies] useful talking points in support of the financial viability of studying the liberal arts."―Timothy Aubry, New York Times Book Review

"Useful guidance for newly minted job hunters"
Kirkus

"Give this to anyone who is questioning the value of a classical education in today's fast-paced world."
Booklist
