How to Be Everything is Out in Italian, Dutch, and Korean (with More Languages Coming)!

Written by Emilie

Topics: The Book

Hey multipods!

So, this is pretty neat.

My book, How to Be Everything, is officially out in a few other languages!!

We’ve got…

(Don’t ya love that octopus?!)

I’ve also received word from my publisher that HTBE will be coming out in Japanese, complex and simplified Chinese, and Russian! So exciting.

I’m still hoping for more languages, and while I super appreciate the offers you guys keep sending me to translate the book, there’s unfortunately nothing I can do there. Publishers have their own translators.

If you happen to know any publishers in your country who might be interested in buying the language rights, definitely encourage them (perhaps on Twitter) to reach out to HarperCollins. It would be wonderful to reach multipotentialites in all corners of the earth.

Until then, check out that octopus… :D

Your pal and fellow multipotentialite,

  2. Joanne says:

    Oh my god Emilie I’m so so proud!! Definitely reading it and will write a book review too!!

  3. Simone says:

    That’s so great, I’m from Rome, Italy, but I’ve just decided to buy the original one in english, just to improve some speak-abilities and general skills… Then every lenguage has its own charm to be understood, and a way to let you understand certain things, and english is great imho, so why not?! :)

  4. Maryske says:

    Okay, so I checked out the octopus. And I think Korean looks pretty amazing. In MASH, everything Korean was always written in Latin letters, as I recall, but then, hey, that’s American LOL

    Question: do you know which line of text represents your name?

    Your TED talk,your site and your book are a new and inspiring resource for my EFL English class for High School students in Mexico.

    This is the book what I have been looking for.
    It’s amazing that I can read this book in Korean.

    I have a major job in a big company, and I’m also working in two startup companies.

    Sometimes I felt depressed because I thought whether I can’t select my aptitude until now or not.
    However I got conviction about my job from read this book.

    Thanks for giving me such a conviction of my job, and also my life.

  13. Valerio says:

    Just finished reading your book in Italian. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Reading the book has put me in some parts in embarrassment for how much, for the first time, a person has succeeded in describing or better describing the multipotenziali. I just have to wish you the best even if from what I see you go big!

  14. Adriana says:

    Hi Emilie! Your book is amazing. Finally I know I’m normal and now I have a life purpose. Do you have a copy in Brazilian Portuguese? I’d really like to translate it. (I’m a translator among othee things). :-)
