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
"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
"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
"While the book is geared toward recent grads, even career switchers can benefit.... Above all, Anders shows that success is rarely a straight line."―Book Page
"You Can Do Anything is part how-to for humanities types.... Also tells stories about liberal arts students made good.... These are important words of wisdom by a skilled storyteller and a sharp observer of the human condition."―Adam Lashinsky, Fortune

But are engineers destined to rule the world? Perhaps not, just as it isn’t the ultra-logical Mr. Spock who commands the Starship Enterprise, but rather the charismatic Captain Kirk.
In his new book, author George Anders has done a brilliant job of decrypting today’s job market, identifying vast new opportunities for young people with liberal arts degrees. He points out that while the computing sector has created plenty of new jobs, the fastest-growing fields are actually the ones “catching the warmth of the tech revolution,” jobs like graphic designer, training specialist and research analyst. And in a world where millions of jobs are being created that didn’t even exist five years ago, those best positioned to grab them are the ones able to rapidly analyze, improvise and deal with ambiguity. In other words, those with the skills at the very heart of a liberal arts education.
It’s true that recruiters still chase candidates with technical backgrounds. Those with a liberal arts degree, especially at the beginning of a career, will need to be creative. And this is where Anders’ book really shines - with one inspiring example after another, he shows readers how to find jobs and improvise their way to a successful career.
For anyone looking to launch themselves into the world of work, this book is essential reading. Who knows? Someday you could be commanding a Starship of your own.
