    Three short years ago, when Chris Brogan and Julien Smith wrote their best seller, Trust Agents, being interesting and human on the Web was enough to build a significant audience. But now, everybody has a platform. The problem is that most of them are just making noise. In The Impact Equation, Brogan and Smith show that to make people truly care about what you have to say - you need more than just a good idea, trust among your audience, or a certain number of fol­lowers.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Chris Brogan's book is very good. I would rank it up there (close) to Seth Godin's work and Close to Simon Sinek's. I follow his blog and really enjoyed the "equation".


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Impact Equation?

    The actual equation is what is interesting here.


    Any additional comments?

    I am not sure if all authors should read their own books.

    When Navy SEAL Adam Brown woke up on March 17, 2010, he didn’t know he would die that night in the Hindu Kush Mountains of Afghanistan - but he was ready: In a letter to his children, not meant to be seen unless the worst happened, he wrote, "I’m not afraid of anything that might happen to me on this earth, because I know no matter what, nothing can take my spirit from me."

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    I am always on the hunt for new fantasy series authors to listen to, this is a good one. The Irish theme and crossover is very interesting. I must admit Oberon, the Irish Wolf Hound is my favorite sidekick!
