The New York Times bestselling author draws from his popular show #AskGaryVee to offer surprising, often outrageous, and imminently useful and honest answers to everything you’ve ever wanted to know—and more—about navigating the new world.
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.
#AskGaryVee showcases the most useful and interesting questions Gary has addressed on his popular show. Distilling and expanding on the podcast’s most urgent and evergreen themes, Gary presents practical, timely, and timeless advice on marketing, social media, entrepreneurship, and everything else you’ve been afraid to ask but are dying to know. Gary gives you the insights and information you need on everything from effectively using Twitter to launching a small business, hiring superstars to creating a personal brand, launching products effectively to staying healthy—and even buying wine.
Whether you’re planning to start your own company, working in digital media, or have landed your first job in a traditional company, #AskGaryVee is your essential guide to making things happen in a big way.
Review by SimonHedley | The Strategic Alchemist
I’ve got to know Gary over the decade. I’ve seen him sharing, growing and learning.. And more than that helping. His #AskGaryVee work is a massive step forward both those in the corporate space looking to make the step outside and into the faster waters of modern entrepreneurship and social influence, and also those looking to free themselves from the distraction rich world of the guru cult snake oil training space.
I come from a background of business, banking and entrepreneurship. I also know there is more to life than just making money.
Why I’m writing this is in the last few days, I met with Gary live in London and watched him being present and talking to hundreds of people who came and asked Gary V. There was no ego, there was no security, there was a man who was and is deeply passionate about 1) being authentic 2) cutting through the BS 3) walking his talk.
He wouldn’t have done that for the money or to sell some books. He actually 100% deeply cares. Meet him, shake his hand and get behind the “noise” of @askgaryvee
We also run a charity , and we’ve given his previous books – jab jab jab hook, and shared his content and it’s made a difference to a lot of people. So far early days.. But the same here ..
If you want to see why 300+ people came at a few hours notice after a simple post on Instagram and snapchat.. Read this book.
And remember all it takes is one simple idea, implemented to make the difference.
This book will give you more than one..
There are fewer people right now I would recommend you read if you wanted a fresh mindset and fresh take – based on tried and tested logic
Gary is someone that is walking the talk of being a growth mechanic and I know because I am too. This is not noise or gambling. This is work. And he’s loyal to what he knows works.
He’s also willing to admit – I was wrong and learn and move forward.
Read the book, apply what you learn, and hopefully I’ll be learning and partnering and buying from you soon too.
By Robert Kiyosaki
I was recommended to read this by a friend who has taken part in coaching with the Rich Dad team. She told me it would give me a whole new perspective on assets and the current state of finance, economics and the world stage. It did.
Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad Poor Dad and many others) explains – in an easily read way – how finances, education, politics are all controlled by the very wealthy to further benefit them BUT far from being “rich bashing” it demonstrates how to think differently, how to act as the wealthy do and how to learn the art of true success and true wealth.
Forewarned is fore armed and Robert’s forecasting of another crash, bigger than ever before, in or around 2016 (which he made in 2002) and which was influenced by the work of Bucky Buckminster Fuller flags up what we can do to attempt to avert this individually and globally.
His wisdom on different types of intelligence and the evident necessity for a different kind of education, which isn’t still firmly rooted in the Industrial Age, rings so true that you wonder why this isn’t our reality…but he shares his insights on what is holding the change back too.
If you think you need to get out of debt, think again. If you think you need savings, forget it. If you believe stocks and shares will provide for your old age, start to question it…quickly. For a fresh and insightful view of true assets, real cashflow and abundance read this book.

The Thousandth Man by Rudyard Kipling
ONE man in a thousand, Solomon says.
Will stick more close than a brother.
And it’s worth while seeking him half your days
If you find him before the other.
Nine hundred and ninety-nine depend
On what the world sees in you,
But the Thousandth Man will stand your friend
With the whole round world agin you.
‘Tis neither promise nor prayer nor show
Will settle the finding for ‘ee.
Nine hundred and ninety-nine of ’em go
By your looks, or your acts, or your glory.
But if he finds you and you find him,
The rest of the world don’t matter;
For the Thousandth Man will sink or swim
With you in any water.
You can use his purse with no more talk
Than he uses yours for his spendings,
And laugh and meet in your daily walk
As though there had been no lendings.
Nine hundred and ninety-nine of ’em call
For silver and gold in their dealings;
But the Thousandth Man he’s worth ’em all
Because you can show him your feelings.
His wrong’s your wrong, and his right’s your right,
In season or out of season.
Stand up and back it in all men’s sight
With that for your only reason!
Nine hundred and ninety-nine can’t bide
The shame or mocking or laughter,
But the Thousandth Man will stand by your side
To the gallows-foot – and after!
