Gary Vaynerchuk—the inspiring and unconventional entrepreneur who introduced us to the concept of crush it—knows how to get things done, have fun, and be massively successful. A marketing and business genius, Gary had the foresight to go beyond traditional methods and use social media tools such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube to reach an untapped audience that continues to grow.

I thought the book was really good... Until I listened to this version! Here you also get more of that raw, high-energy passion that Gary puts into everything he produces.

If you're a follower of the show, you'll find this very familiar yet some answers are different from what he said when he was asked these questions before.

All in all, this is a great, fresh, content and strategy-packed product anyone can get tons of info from.

This is a manifesto about ideas. Big ideas, small ideas, and outlandish ideas. Ideas that innovate, ideas that disrupt markets, and especially ideas that irritate. More than ideas, though, Mad Genius is about how ideas are born and the role they play in entrepreneurial thinking. This is a manifesto for managers who want to become leaders and leaders who want to blow up mediocrity.

I've read all of Randy's books so far and although I think Risky is the New Safe was tremendously good, I'm certain this one is even better. Although if you haven't, I suggest you read Risky... Before you pick this one up; it will make more sense that way I think.

And Randy's narration makes it even better.

I absolutely love Dr. Greger's way of delivering clear, concise and precise nutritional information in a way that is easy for the non-scientifically minded.

I bought several copies of this book and am in fact giving them away to my patients in hopes of changing the way everyone approaches health and taking care of oneself.

The audiobook is very amusing, easy to listen to and for anyone who has seen Dr. Greger's videos, very familiar.

What made the experience of listening to 6 Months to 6 Figures the most enjoyable?

Great advice. Clear, actionable recommendations. Chapters are short and to the point.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I am surprised that the author did not get a professional to narrate this book. Every %$!·/&( sentence has an upward inflection making them sound like questions instead of statements. Terribly annoying. It definitely ruins this otherwise phenomenal book.

Any additional comments?

Get the book in print. Then read it, study it, and apply it. It's pure gold. But avoid the audible version like the plague.
I would've listened to this book (repeatedly and) in a single sitting if it wasn't for how annoying the narration was.
Do you want to know how bad it is? Search for "upward inflection family guy" on Youtube. It's exactly like that.
