If you read Derek Sivers' blog or have seen him speak, you won't read anything new in this book. It's very short and took me about an hour to read. Derek Sivers has a great voice and has a refreshing, down-to-earth perspective based on his experiences and decisions. He seems incredibly genuine. The relationship between a customer and a business is often adversarial, but it's clear that Derek Sivers was able to create a different kind of relationship with his clients. Maybe that's because he ultimately wasn't there for the money but the project itself. He also makes the point that at the end of the day, whatever you're doing should make you happy, and that happiness can be realized in a number of ways, which he illustrates with several examples. As much as I like Derek Sivers and his writing, I wish there was a lot more to this book besides a compilation of stories and arguments that he's already made in his blog.
