Accessible and empowering chapters addressing self-awareness, public speaking, embracing a long-term vision, and the hallmarks of a good leader show Vaynerchuk to be a shrewd, learned businessman who effectively dispenses “real-world advice that can be adapted and reshaped as the winds of commerce and culture shift.” (Kirkus Reviews) --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

The results for me did not start with "Converted more clients," "got paid more," or "bought a new car." What Gary taught me is that is not the point: Gary's advise on the show (and his completely new take on his advise in this book) made me be a better husband and father; Gary made me be a harder worker; Gary made me stop doing stupid things that were actually harming me more than helping. ... AND YES, because of all of that great things started to happen (except for buying that new car, because Gary let me see how I did not need to waste that money). My kids see me more and I am a better dad. I'm a better human being to be around -- and my business is doing so amazing BECAUSE OF THAT.
In this book, you get actual steps to take your work with those you serve to exciting new places: But that's all possible because Gary gives us the core pieces of himself that allow him to do these other tactics. Tactics are great -- and he gives lots of those -- but it's the heart and head stuff that made the difference.
Gary, I know you will read this so I just want to say directly to you: Brother, you have changed my life. Not because of the tactics -- even though those helped SO FREAKIN MUCH. What changed my life is that you showed me how to have the self awareness to figure out who I really am and have the authenticity to DARE to communicate that real me to the world. Gary, thank you.
Buy this book: be ready for it to change your life.
For instance, early in his book, the author makes a very strong black-and-white statement that in order to succeed you have to be willing to throw all your eggs in your startup's basket and go full steam ahead. I, too, had always believed this brash, confident approach in business until I read Originals: How Non-Conformists Move the World . And wow I was much more impressed by Originals than by AskGaryVee.
In Originals, the author cites studies that surprisingly reveal that people who gave everything up to do their start ups failed a lot more than people who built their start up more strategically. The group that succeeded more treated their start ups as side hustles, hedging it as a risky bet until the particular side hustle was sufficiently de-risked before plunging in. To further illustrate this point, the author also cites examples like the Google founders, Bill Gates, the founders of Warby Parker (who he taught), and others.
So, while Mr. Vaynerchuk charges his advice with more motivational umph, the truth seems to be more nuanced than to push a all-or-none attitude on starting a business. This is relevant if a founder of a startup wants to know the statistics of different approaches.
I also didn't like the style of AskGaryVee. Due to the chosen format (a collection of Q&A), it felt unfocused,
To me, this book's value lies in it's confidence building and motivational aspects. It's the sort of advice some successful dude might give you in a bar. It is a cheerleader. But if you're looking for strategic wisdom based on data rather than personal anecdotes, you should definitely supplement this book with some others that have more scholarship and discipline to them.
Thank you Gary for providing me SO much value and showing me how to crush it in youth ministry. Our students are engaging with me and each other better than they ever have before! Don't underestimate your reach, you really are making a difference. Though you may not believe what I believe, you are helping students in Springfield Missouri get connected to a church that truly does love them! Keep up the good work!
p.s. I'd love for you to make a 4-5 minute video on how churches can use social media to engage their communities better (maybe w/o cussing, haha!)... Also, all the pastors I know are freaking about about the "legal" issues involved with snap chatting minors??.. Anyways.. If you do, ill post the video to the pages I'm connected with (5,500 pastors) and maybe expand your reach into another area of influence.. Think about it!
p.s.s. Your parenting book needs to come out soon! :)

I have never met Gary Vaynerchuk but he certainly comes across as incredibly genuine and seems to love to see others succeed. It is fair to say that many of the questions asked in the book have featured on his show for free but the book represents an extra rich source of easy to absorb pearls of wisdom delivered by a man that is not just talking the talk but also walking the walk.
Many people write books after the event but #AskGaryVee is very much of the moment and I simply cannot imagine how it is possible not to be a wiser and more savvy operator after reading this book. The book is practical, insightful and, most importantly, realistic.
On a final note, anyone who is serious about social media marketing must listen to the Audio Book version as Gary goes off script and ad-libs on many occasions during the reading which adds extra insight, nuance and, ultimately, value.
As a keen listener of business audio books, particularly internet business based books, I find #AskGaryVee to be a valuable and resourceful book that I cannot recommend highly enough!
I wasn't disappointed! I got a Fitbit for Christmas, so listening to this book whilst getting my daily step-count up was a double bonus on fit brain and fit body. I love that he delivers the audio content himself in his usual free-flowing style, the answers on the show differ from those in the book and those given on the audio version as Gary re-answers the questions and add libs on the audio book. He also added 100 questions in the book which weren't on the show. Great energy, great strategies, great motivation from a guy who's proved his worth by being a daily practitioner in his successful businesses.
His work ethic is superhuman, his analysis searingly sharp, he will be on the right side of history with his predictions regarding the internet, communication and social media platform impact on business marketing. If you want to learn how to get on that bus and improve your business, buy it, its well worth the £13.60 investment.
To get the most of this, you may need to throw away some of the pre-established ideas you have gained from reading lots of other business and self help books. Gary can be brutally honest on certain subjects, but I honestly think he is spot on with the vast majority of his views. For starters in a world where everyone is looking for shortcuts, Gary is pretty clear; you need to work hard and be honest with yourself if you really want to excel. He is a massive exponent of EQ over IQ which I also massively believe in. Well worth a read for any aspiring and current business owners out there.
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.
