In his 2009 international best seller Crush It, Gary insisted that a vibrant personal brand was crucial to entrepreneurial success. In Crushing It! Gary explains why that's even more true today, offering his unique perspective on what has changed and what principles remain timeless. He also shares stories from other entrepreneurs who have grown wealthier - and not just financially - than they ever imagined possible by following Crush It principles. The secret to their success (and Gary's) has everything to do with their understanding of the social media platforms and their willingness to do whatever it took to make these tools work to their utmost potential. That's what Crushing It! teaches listeners to do.
In this lively, practical, and inspiring audiobook, Gary dissects every current major social media platform so that anyone, from a plumber to a professional ice skater, will know exactly how to amplify his or her personal brand on each. He offers both theoretical and tactical advice on how to become the biggest thing on old standbys like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat; podcast platforms like Spotify, Soundcloud, iHeartRadio, and iTunes; and other emerging platforms such as Musical.ly. For those with more experience, Crushing It! illuminates some little-known nuances and provides innovative tips and clever tweaks proven to enhance more common tried-and-true strategies.
Crushing It! is a state-of-the-art guide to building your own path to professional and financial success, but it's not about getting rich. It's a blueprint to living life on your own terms.

Oh my god, WE GET IT ALREADY!
Considering how much hype Gary Vee has gotten over the last year it's obvious people (including myself) would be excited about this. I got this as my free audiobook from Audible because fucked if I'm gonna pay for what I probably already knew from following Gary on social. It was nice to hear him narrating his own book but my god he is so annoying to listen to. Every fucking sentence is read EXACTLY THE SAME WAY. Seriously, you sound like a 3rd grader in reading class. Furthermore, while I like hearing 1st person stories of people who "made it", Jesus Christ do they also become tedious. "I was a nobody bla bla bla hated my job bla bla bla living in my parents house bla bla bla and then I started doing internet stuff, following my passion bla bla bla and then KABLAMMO suddenly shit started happening. Wow, never heard that one before! Oh except maybe A MILLION TIMES! Goes something like, "once I was just a loser like you, and then I followed my dreams and TA-DAAAA I'm successful now!" Please spare me. We get it, the internet is a huge opportunity. Content, engagement, hard work etc etc will get you a long way. I had to stop listening once he kept going on about Musically - WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT SHIT!?! I almost gagged how cheesy that platform is. Oh and saying "never bet against Facebook"? Were you born yesterday? They are INFORMATION WHORES, selling your data to the highest bidder. Its one thing to use it for business but as for personal I would avoid at all costs. The biggest thing that pissed me off was the "I was born with Alpha DNA." Ok shut up now Gary, you are really sounding like a twat. We got your message, now go away and enjoy your millions of dollars

A good book to get you into understanding social media’s possibilities
I’ve never really followed Gary, however noticed some of his social media posts of late and when I saw this book i thought I’d give it a listen.
Gary’s got a unique style and is confident in how he delivers his message as a self proclaimed pioneer of using social media to promote ones business.
He reviews the main social media platforms and their relevance/importance in the branding/business world of today, but also focusses on self growth and continually learning and identification of up and coming social media / technological opportunities.
I became interested in this book to better develop my marketing skills (of which I can say I have none) for my business and can say that this book has helped me draw up the plans for the foundations of my social media marketing plan. This book makes it clear there is a lot to learn by doing.
Now as Gary says, I’ve just got to hit the road and start “crushing it!”

85% fluff and 15% value.
This is with most books, but for some reason I was really expecting this to be super dense. For me, it seemed just as sparse as most books because it was littered with story after story of anecdotal information. I personally prefer specific step-by-step strategies or fact based information.
There were definitely bits of gold throughout, but I got those more when Gary was talking, which is about 60% of the time. The rest are stories from others.
With that being said, maybe I missed something. So I’m giving it a re-listen because I had crazy high expectations! :)

Common sense don't expect any wow moments
Seemed like an 8 hour lesson on common sense with stories written by others that flip-flop between first second and third person.
1, Work harder than your competition to get ahead 2, treat customers how you would like to be treated 3, do what you love because you will be spending a big part of your life on it.

Best book I’ve listened to in 2018
No Exaggeration!! I enjoyed this book more than I could ever have imagined. I took so much information and energy away from it.
It’s the first audio book I’ve listened to with the author going off script and putting in his two cents. It felt like we were having a conversation.
I loved it. I’m going to have this on repeat for the rest of my life!

the content has little substance
Im afraid the content has very little substance. I guess it is meant for motivational purposes rather than going into details of building a successful business.
