The book is about some obnoxious guy with a lot to say about nothing... Rather go out there and make a difference by yourself. You don't need this.
If you are serious about taking your business into the stratosphere, this book is required reading/listening. Gary lays it all out there and tells it straight. He has been there, done it and shares what it took for him to become THE wine authority. So if you listen to CRUSH IT!, you too will be able to step into the fast lane and excel...no matter what field you are in.
I highly recommend the audio version since Gary goes off script and offers up additional tips and insights that were not included in the print version. Very valuable info, indeed!
This is a FABULOUS book. I have listened to it so many times, I can almost recite the entire book. A great listen! You will not be disappointed with CRUSH IT!
Gary V does a great job of explaining where he came from, where he is now, and how he got there. That is, he describes his success and states emphatically that you can do it too. He tells his story and that's what I want to hear, the businesses he starts, his family, etc. Then I know where he's coming from. He lays out a solid blueprint, that, depending on your genes (your personal bias, or your 'personality'), determines how you can succeed. For example, he states, if you are not shy and can get in front of a camera and sell your product, niche, idea, business, etc, then there's certain ways of accomplishing this. If you are shy then you can still accomplish your goals and be successful. You may be good at the written word or you may be good at audio, or other. Then you use these qualities to your advantage. He also describes the various methods or 'vehicles' such as facebook, twitter, blogs, etc to popularize your product, business, etc. As well, there's a lot of pointers regarding what you should do to be successful, that is, do the right thing. For example, when he personally drove a case of wine to a lady that had placed an order and it couldn't be delivered the usual way. This is the right thing to do. Overall an excellent and interesting guide.
Gary packs the audio version of this book full of much additional input. This book listens more like a radio show than someone dictating a book to you.
I really appreciate it when the author of a book reads his/her own book, this shows me the passion that he puts into his works.
Now I just need to "Crush It". I'm pretty pumped about it.
Loved this audio book. Mr. Vay-ner-chuk struts to his own tune. Loved his ideas and the numbers he presented regarding social media. I previously thought only twits twitter but his example of the power social media can boost your sales was mind blowing. Highly recommend the listen.
I really enjoyed this book. Gary oozes with passion about the things he loves, making money is one of them. This isn't a book about get rich quick schemes, it's about creating a brand, marketing it, and how to nurture that brand.
Seriously, I love listening to him talk about this stuff, it doesn't hurt that he is entertaining as well.
I really enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Gary is completely over the top and it's simply great. You feel like you get to know him as he reads TO you, not AT you. It's almost a conversation. This book is perfect for reading on the road. I can't wait to see -- and hear -- more great things from the Future Owner of the Jets.
Gary tells you the ways he's worked on getting his brand noticed and simple techniques that work, but remember it is work, not a free ride. Listen to him rather than read as Gary's passion in his actual words might rub off.
This is a great book for specifics in how to use online social media to just about anything online. I'm applying the principles step by step. My twos criticisms are that Gary went on way too many tangents, and he's not an especially convincing reader. Having another reader would have greatly improved the listening experience.
In his book Gary provides insight into creating your own "Brand" online. He emphasizes that you must follow your passion and he truly shows his passion. He provides some valuable tips based on his experience.
Gary did a great job of reading the book with incredible passion. I listened to the book twice. Excellent!!
