    "Informative and interesting with actual takeaways"

    Mark weaves real stories through actionable steps. There is no fluff in this book but you will not feel lectured at either. It's clear the depth of research that went on and the care to present that research so you will come away with the why, what and how.

    there are a million books on this topic, but this one is different. it's real. Mark details what it really takes to become someone online, and it isn't easy. At the same time, it's attainable.... you just have to have a plan. He gives you one. great book.

    "The Most Inspiring Book I've Ever Listened To"

    I've followed Mark's blog for a few years, but only listened to his audiobook "Social Media Explained" last month. Then I learnt that "Known" had just been released, so I had to listen too. It's personal, entertaining, and (most importantly) inspiring. In fact, more inspiring than any other book I've listened to. It's wonderfully constructed, performed with humility, and full if real case studies and transferable ideas. Whatever you want to be known for and howler big or small your niche is, you will benefit from this book. Brilliant.

    "The right book at the right time - Outstanding."
    What did you like most about Known?

    Known is one of the most inspiring business books I've had the pleasure to listen to. It's helped me come to a major decision about my own business and life. In short, it's given me something we all want - clarity.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Known?

    The concept of Passion versus Sustainable Interest is such a strong point, which is so well made.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story of my friend Chloë and also the story of Chris Brogan's struggle with depression moved me as it's something I've struggled with.


    Any additional comments?

    The book really benefitted greatly from being read by the author. Mark's personality, passion and honesty made such a difference to the experience.
