Designing Your Life

How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life

Dave Evans and Bill BurnettKnopf • 2016

Reframing Failure

by David Meyer

Bill Burnett and Dave Evans’ bestseller teaches you how to reframe your view of yourself, your life, your mistakes, your likely future and your joy.

Bill Burnett, executive director of the Stanford Design Program, and Dave Evans, co-founder of Electronic Arts, offer a well-written, practical, witty and entertaining approach to improving your life.

The authors, co-founders of Stanford’s Life Design Lab, disguise their New York Times number one bestselling self-help book as a designer’s approach to creating, solving problems, dealing with failure, and seeking mental and emotional clarity. Their infectious, commonsense tone belies their iconic professional standing and the simple genius of their ideas. Burnett and Evans’ compassionate understanding of the ordinary issues that face anyone trying to make the right career and life choices is, simply, wisdom – a genuine gift offered without pretension.
