A Good Fast Read

I saw this book profiled on somebody's blog. I got in the mail today and read it in about two hours. I read a lot and must say that I would put this in the category of "fun read". If you have any interest at all in making a living online, this is one of the books you...
I saw this book profiled on somebody's blog. I got in the mail today and read it in about two hours. I read a lot and must say that I would put this in the category of "fun read". If you have any interest at all in making a living online, this is one of the books you should read. I suspect this book will be popular with his followers, but I have never heard of this guy and still enjoyed it. The price and length are just right. I highly recommend it.

If you want to listen to 11 chapters of Gary talking about how much he loves himself, his wonderful accomplishments and his desire to buy the New York Jets then purchase this book. Honestly. There's one good Chapter that describes a semi-formula for success. The key, according to Gary, is....wait for it.....post to every blog, website, every social tool on the internet for years and companies will beg to advertise on your blog. That's it. He even advises not complaining about waiting years for your success to come to include surfing the net and social sites for 6-8 hours a day. I simply dog ear good ideas for future reference and I ended up with one page - seriously. My plan is to take this book to the recycle bin so the local recycling plant can "CRUSH IT".

    Awful and waste of time

    This is nothing but a big waste of time. Gary Vaynerchuk has not captured attention with his supposed pioneering, multi-faceted approach to personal branding and business?? Are you kidding me? There is nothing about this book that is pioneering.

    He simply worked at his Dad's wine shop and his Dad poured a lot of money into it to expand. They spent a lot of money promoting the business... simply put... they spent money to make money.

    Gary specializes in self promotion. He believes the old adage of... if he says something to enough people over and over again eventually they may start beleiving it. He is nothing more than a salesman and not a good one at that.

    He has since left that business because he didn't have the passion for it. A lot of people in the wine business were calling for his head tdue to the conflcit of interest of he rating wine that he sells.

    He is now trying to act as a social media expert to try and teach the fundamentals to businesses. He'll be back to the wine trade because I can't imagine anyone paying him to teach such elementary concepts. But heck, they say a fool is born every minute so maybe he can fool them. We'll see.

    This book is something to be missed... don't waste your time.

    awful

    I read this right after finishing The Four-Hour Work Week. Bad move. It's a tough act to follow.

    I don't need a book about success to tell me to love my family. Plenty of successful people don't love their families.

    I don't need a book about success to tell me that if I don't love what I do, I'll fail. There are legions of successful lawyers, business folk, etc who prove this wrong. I don't love what I do, and I make a great living.

    And I don't care for his virtuizing of hard work either. Work smarter, work less, play more.
