Crushing It!: How Great Entrepreneurs Build their Business and Influence and How You Can, Too Paperback – 12 Feb 2018
Audio CD, Abridged, Audiobook, CD
“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
“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 insisted that a vibrant personal brand was one of the primary paths 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.
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.

This contains really good things - my favourite being how patience and hard work had no substitute for the many examples of entrepreneurs he highlights in the book.
I bought the kindle version of the book (an equivalent of $3.06) and I honestly think it was worth the price.
It taught me a lot and at the same time, it wasn't the kind of motivational book that said anything was possible as long as you believed, but anything was definitely possible if you had the right mix of hard work, patience, passion and talent.
I'd recommend this book to anyone who's found what they want to do and want to know more about how to go about their own journey🤜🏾
Author has focused on social media platforms for brand building... also specifies clearly that results are better judge.
I have no doubt saying that gary is a great stroy teller, and this book is an evidence to his claim, its my first gary vee book and I throughly enjoued it, its been distributed in 2 parts, first talks about how some of the people who used crush it method are crushing it, and second part talks about stratergies of how you can crush it too using social media, all in all a very informative read about social marketing.
I like the last two chapters a lot, on podcasts and voice-first. They have given me ideas, and so this is a good enough reason for me to like this book!
For the rest, I do think he could have gone a bit deeper. I do not like his constant references to how people were influenced by his earlier book, "Crush It". He almost sounds like a messiah, and he is not!

As a poet that is trying to get recognised, I feel that there are gaps in the market and I have only realised this because of this book. I have now started to plan and implement my strategy to get my poems noticed and if they are good enough, which i feel they are, to be noticed.
Thank you Gary for this amazing book and for helping me.
Not sure why so many people criticise his work. He is inspiring! He calls you to action!
His advices are simple. His words speak loud.
I appreciate his wil in helping. Different from other books in entrepreneurship, he is not selling any course or ebook. He is giving a lot that will make a huge difference in everybody’s lives. Well done Gary!
Crushing it is great as it follows up from an earlier book Crush It and includes success stories from others who have followed his ideas.
Gary's philosophy is simple, those who care more and work hard will be successful in their fields.
This one gives you lots of examples of people starting a business and making it big from marketing themselves well, but it's not revolutionary in any way.
Worth a read though as there are some real nuggets in there about tactics to get your message out there
A very interesting read to see how far businesses have come following his advice.
