How to Get Anyone to Do Anything

by R. Philip Hanes

Published by Ten Speed Press

Read Excerpt
Listen to podcast interview:

"You can accomplish anything you can dream, if you can get someone else to do it!" This is the personal mission statement and secret weapon of R. Philip Hanes -- businessman, entrepreneur, civic leader, conservationist, connoisseur, philanthropist -- in short, a man who has packed more living, and giving, into a single lifetime than most of us could manage in ten. And, at eighty, he isn't done yet!

How does this irrepressible visionary do it? With typical generosity and infectious enthusiasm, Hanes shares his strategies for how to jump-start the impossible by recounting a lifetime's worth of experiences doing just that. Divided into four parts -- Networking, Risk-Taking, Fund-Raising, and Problem-Solving -- How to Get Anyone to Do Anything will inspire readers to see challenging opportunities instead of insurmountable odds. By teaching readers when and how to ask for help, How to Get Anyone to Do Anything is a blueprint for accomplishment through contribution, commitment, and connection. Not only a memoir of an exceptional life, it is a manual for how to  make your own life extraordinary.
