Review quote

"Gary is a masterful entrepreneur with a gift for communication that cuts through all the bullshit that can often hinder one's success. We share the same simplistic business philosophy which is why we've become good friends: Be willing to put in the hard work. And always be grateful. Crushing It! is a must-have for all individuals who want to be the best at what they do." -- Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson "The name GaryVee has become synonymous with motivating an entire generation. No one understands the power of social media better than Gary, because none of what he preaches is theory-it's an understanding born from his deep experience in business and in life." -- Casey Neistat "Gary is helping to calibrate the desires and expectations of a new generation searching for a way to break through the noise. He's loud, he's high energy-and he's exactly right." -- John Mayer Vaynerchuk identifies the most important components that contribute to successful online marketing in a personable, lively way. Going beyond simple "how-to" guides for the various platforms, he gets at the heart of what it takes to succeed in a competitive environment. Recommended for anyone looking to get started online or increase their media currency. -- Laurel Tacoma, Fairfax Cty. P.L., VA
