"On a sales and marketing level, Not Taught is an achievement. Although at times both patronizing and provoking, it buzzes with electricity. The dialogue is pure, unfiltered, adrenalized Keenan. It imbues the author's many fervent dialogues with the narrative equivalent of a car chase."
From the Back Cover
"Irreverent AND highly relevant. In his own inimitable style, Keenan kicks your butt as he shows you what's needed to be successful in today's world."

It’s such a fast and such a good read that I don’t want to be a spoiler by offering too many specifics in this review. However, what I am compelled to share is how absolutely meaningful and on-target its focus is. If you’re in any way lost or confused about what it takes to stand out, get noticed, create content, or build a following then Not Taught is for you. I was amused and impressed to see David Meerman Scott’s powerful endorsement of this book because it was David Meerman Scott who delivered this exact same wakeup call to me just six years ago! I had been ignoring the rapid growth of social media and indifferent to the fact that I didn’t even show up in a Google search of my own name. Hearing Meerman Scott speak scared me to the point of action. I realized that if I had any intention of remaining a top-performer, or ever dreamed of changing jobs or building something for myself then I needed to wakeup and get serious about building my online presence and personal brand. In a fresher, bolder, simpler and more action-oriented fashion, that is exactly what Not Taught can do for you today!
Do you want to become or stay relevant? Viewed as a thought leader or expert? Hoping to create a following? Heard enough about the importance of creating your own content but not sure where to start or what to do? Are you over 30-years-old, less than 75 and fearful that the world is passing you by? Have you recently thought or said, “I just wish someone would help me get caught up with all this new stuff and show me what to do?” If you answered yes to any of those questions, stop reading this right now, purchase the book. You’ll thank Keenan and me later.

The lessons in Not Taught are lessons that go back centuries. The most influential, those that contributed the most, those who had the greatest impact consistently did what Keenan talks about in Not Taught.
The challenge, however, is not many had the freedom or resources to do these things. Often, it was limited to the wealthy, those who had the time, money, privilege, title or reach. Or those so totally committed they overcame every obstacle in their way to achieve. History is filled with great stories of highly successful and impactful people. People who weren't limited by excuses.
Keenan slaps us in the face with the fact that greatness, high attainment, success is within the grasp of everyone. Technology, the web, greater openness and transparency make what was available to a few available to everyone.
So there are no excuses! It is no longer time, money, family influence, stature, educational background, years in grade that are required. It is possible for everyone to be extraordinary. You just have to want it.
All it takes is unquenchable curiosity, a drive to learn and improve oneself, a drive to share and contribute to your community, your peers, your customers, your family, and the world. To have an impact and make a difference.
The world has flattened, access to information, resources, people, ideas, collaboration, and help had been democratized. We don't need money, we don't need a title, we don't need a formal education. The barriers that kept many from achieving have been smashed, so there are no excuses.
It is not an age issue, it's not a difference between millennials, GenX, GenY, Old Farts. Anyone can be limited by their vision and stopped by excuses--Could'a, Would'a, Should'a.
Keenan reminds us of what has been true for centuries, but Not Taught. More importantly he tells us there are no excuses. He would probably agree: Ball's in your court--if you have the balls. Get off your friggin ass and achieve! Excuses not accepted.
Or Else…you will be left behind….
I hear so many people today say, “Facebook, Linked-In, Twitter…what a waste of time.” I was one of them!
Just reading the first chapter will grab your attention and make you sit up…”REACH”
Keenan is passionate, motivated, and full of energy…after all he is the Sales Guy!
I promise you “WHEN” you read this book; it will get your attention (of course if you care about your career and your future)
BRANDING YOU…”It’s NOT OK to be Anonymous”
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did…Thank you Keenan for opening my eyes!
YOU ROCK and so does this book!
