Four-time New York Times bestselling author Gary Vaynerchuk offers new lessons and inspiration drawn from the experiences of dozens of influencers and entrepreneurs who rejected the predictable corporate path in favor of pursuing their dreams by building thriving businesses and extraordinary personal brands.

In his 2009 international bestseller 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 readers to do.

In this lively, practical, and inspiring book, 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 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.

    First of all, what I really liked about this book is that you can find everything for free on Gary’s website. Why buy or find this book? He lists everything in detail and gave some examples of how people who used the methods that he shared in his book CRUSH IT worked exceptionally well. I bet his next book will be about how people who used crushing it methods and about new techniques on new technology. Thanks Gary
  • Best Book I’ve ever read

    By johnp_2001
    If you haven’t read this definitely worth the read. It includes tons of great/motivational stories. The book cuts a lot of bull crap and tells you the truth.
  • Meh!!

    By Atticuskd
    It’s was ok, good not great. A bit over rated actually. To many hypothetical scenarios story telling that drag on way to long. What if....A couple, takes up dancing, but is over weight, then starts exercising, then makes a YouTube videos, then gives advice, then strengthens their marriage, then gets picked up by a TV station, then invents dance moves, then becomes millionaires etc etc etc. Lots of story telling that “could” happen... On top of that the real life success story’s that actually happened, read by the person it happened to, kept reading in 3rd person then going back and forth referring to themselves in the first person, 2nd and 3rd person, got annoying.

  • Language

    By Zakattack3
    I saw Gary speak at the Remax R4 event last month. I really liked him so I thought I would pick up his book. It started off great but then about half way through there was the f word 4 times in the span of about 20 pages. I stopped reading and unfortunately won’t finish it. To each their own but cussing in a learning environment is super distracting for me.
  • Amazing book!

    By Young and bold
    Love this. He breaks all types of social media down for you so you will know how to approach it and stop making excuses for yourself!
  • Where’s the audio?

    Seriously no audio??? Who has time to “read” anymore... I listen to books ALL the time, never have time to read and actual books... lets get it together people.

  • The #1 Book for everyone who needs a Wake-up Call !!!

    By Nikolas Pulido
    Its just so fascinating, now I wouldn't consider myself a guy who followed Garys content for a long time, only within the last months he caught my attention and I stayed loyal to his content ever since. When he brought out his new book "Crushing it" I was intrigued but I said a yeah "whatever" no need to grab it. By coincidence I stopped by at Barnes & Noble in Downtown Chicago and I looked out for his book , I just wanted to get a quick sneak peak, so I opened it within the first 3 seconds I usually decide whether I buy something or not, I didn't know how much it was cause I didn't see the price tag but I knew even if he would charge 100 bucks I would still buy it, I immediately went to the cashier and bought it. I walked out and started reading while walking and I killed the whole book the same night, I was addicted. What did I see in the 3 seconds ? When I pick up a book I don't start reading like most people do, I flipped really quick through the pages and looked out for keywords and relative terms in the social media culture and since I wanted to up my strategy for my business I looked for some sort of instructional guide, Gary has clearly put his masterpiece together. All the success stories he mentioned, all of them you heard of and they were inspired by his first book Crush it ! Now since we write 2018, he predicts Voice & Podcasts to take over as well as AI, VR & AR. Gary has clearly mastered to stick out and while I doubt that everybody could be like him, I believe you will be more than inspired to take action. He managed to change my perspective, if theres anything you will learn from this book or gain than thats the following. Everyone who made it on one of these platforms was: 1. Authentic and Real ( the most important factor) 2. Has seen the potential of a specific platform to stick out with his/her brand 3. Utilized his skill set to his best abilities Often times when we hear success stories like that, most people fall in envy or claim 'Yeah I can't do the same, they are different than me', I would agree on that statement, I have seen and heard many superheroes these guys aren't superheroes they are regular guys and girls who once decided to make a change and Gary Vaynerchuck reinforces the belief that you can too. So with that being said I would encourage each and every single one to read this book and apply the strategies, even this isn't much of an how to guide its a wake-up call, I have struggled in my life many many times, being a foreigner in Germany and now I am entering the game of entrepreneurship here back in the United States, I have decided for a very long time to make a change but more importantly I have committed to stay true to myself and thats something far more valuable. Thanks Gary, Love your Book and I recommended it to all of my peers across the board!!! Perhaps you can bring out a German version of it, just saying I believe you need to be everywhere!! See ya soon, Nick (19.02.2018)
