Crush It! by Gary Vaynerchuk
What’s it about? Do you have a hobby you wish you could indulge in all day? An obsession that keeps you up at night? If so, Gary Vaynerchuk is ready to show you how to use the power of the Internet to build a business or career around what you are passionate about. Gary spent years building his family business from a local wine shop into a national industry leader. Then one day he turned on a video camera, and transformed his entire life and earning potential by building his personal brand.
Is the narrator any good? Gary Vaynerchuk reads his book with an unbelievable amount of energy and passion (actually, maybe it’s not that unbelievable if you’ve ever watched him speak – eg in this video). Technically he may not be the best reader in the world, but this audio book works because Gary comes across as someone who genuinely cares about his readers/ listeners doing well. Also it’s a lot of fun – Gary regularly strays from the script to deliver you extra bits of useful information.
The verdict? There is a lot of good information in this audio book. You will undoubtedly have come across some of it before, but I guarantee there is no other audio book out there that will leave you as fired up and eager to take action as Crush It! If you want to learn how to harness the power of the Internet to turn your passion into a real business, this audio book is a must listen.
