“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)
From the Back Cover
#1 New York Times Bestseller
“You’re going to hear the stories of people who were scared, just like you. Who had obligations, just like you. Who were told they were being foolish, or reckless, or irresponsible, or immature. They did it anyway and reaped the rewards. If there’s anything this book should teach you, it’s that the only thing stopping you from achieving lasting career and life happiness is you.”
In his 2009 international bestseller, Crush It!, Gary Vaynerchuk 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 remains 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 social media platforms and their willingness to do whatever it takes 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 plumbers to park rangers will know exactly which platforms to use as their pillar content. He offers both theoretical and tactical advice on how to become the biggest thing on old standbys such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram; younger upstarts such as Musical.ly;
audiocentric platforms such as Spotify, SoundCloud, iHeartRadio, and iTunes; and newcomer Alexa Skills. 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 for living life on your own terms.

What is truly inspiring in this book are the abundant stories of those who read his first book, Crush It! and tales of their successes in applying the same principles taught in this book. Even if you read Crush It!, this book is a must read as platforms have evolved and strategies have changed. This is the new authority on social media use in 2018.
I add my own testament to his teachings and principles. In 2016 I started documenting my life as a pilot and sharing stories from the road, trying to help those interested in an aviation career. By following his tried and true methods, I have grown my following to over 35,000 followers and made some money with this 'side hustle' as Gary would say. I'm no entrepreneur, but this book speaks to everyone.
5 stars, I definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to share their passion with the world.
If you need a general introduction to all social media platforms, then this book will work for you.
I also didn’t like how he makes sound everything easy from FB ads to shooting videos.
Second - The back contains celebrity friends clearly writing a blurb to help Gary promote his book. I feel the marketing for this book and celebrity recommendations are misleading. If I had the desire to be a you-tuber or make money on social media I probably would have given it a low 4 star rating. But, I don't and I am not.
I believe the book topped the charts due to its marketing and Gary offering incentives if they purchased 1000+ books. Not because the book is that great. I am sure after a few weeks the hype will die and people will start talking about the actual substance.
I love Gary but the book isn't more than a bunch short stories about social media on how to possibly get likes and shares.
I believe it topped the charts due to its original marketing. I'm sure it will die off
