Book Review: Crushing It!


It’s been awhile since I’ve done a book review, but I couldn’t resist as I stumbled upon Gary Vaynerchuk’s latest book Crushing It! at my local Target store (sequel to his first book Crush It). Inside this book, you’ll find interviews with people who had an idea to do something or create something and went out and did it. Also, Gary gives advice and tips on how to utilize social media to promote your brand or business. Gary Vaynerchuk is hardcore and in your face brutally honest with advice. While reading this book you’ll have plenty of moments of motivation and inspiration to get your idea (or ideas) into motion and take action.

This book has a clear message: the only way to get what you want in life is to take action. A lot of people are infatuated with the idea of picking up a book and having that book give them the answers to life itself. This particular book will not do that, but you’ll read about people from all different backgrounds and starting points that achieved the goals that they’ve set for themselves.

I highly recommend this book for anyone. Even if you’re not thinking about creating a brand or a business (you should be anyways) this book is for you. Gary is great at getting you to look at social media and life in a different way. He has a distinct ability to get you motivated and while reading this book you’ll feel like Gary is sitting with you and explaining what you need to get done. All in all this book is a must have and should be on your bookshelf.

You can order Crushing It! on Amazon or at your local Target.

Book Review: 100 Deadly Skills



When I found out this book, I had to have it. I rarely go to Barnes & Noble (I usually order from Amazon), but I needed to get my hands on this book immediately. Upon opening this book and poring over the chapters, I was hooked. Former Navy SEAL, Clint Emerson, does an outstanding job providing you with skills that will serve you well in any situation that you may find yourself in. For instance: you’ll learn how to turn a pen into a weapon, hide information in plain sight, and deliver a devastating elbow strike. There is something for everyone in this book, and I highly recommend that you purchase one for yourself and select family and friends. If you want to learn more about what this book entails, check out the artofmanliness podcast, featuring guest Clint Emerson. Also, be sure to check out Amazon and Barnes & Noble to purchase the book.



A Must Have Book: Earn The Right To Win by Tom Coughlin

Tom Coughlin


There are a lot of book recommendations out there, but there’s one that has recently stood out to me– and that’s Earn The Right To Win by Tom Coughlin. In this book, Tom Coughlin describes life in the NFL and how he prepares for every situation possible (and I mean every situation). You’ll get a kick out of his famous “Coughlin Time” where he shows up extra early to anything that he’s involved with. It’s something that’s so simple, but very effective to everyone who reads this book. Some reviewers may say the book has nothing new to offer, but I disagree. I’ve always been fascinated with life in the NFL, and how coaches, players, and above all else: how  teams prepare for each and every week during the season. I encourage you to read this book and if you choose to do, please comment on here or send me an email; I would love to know what you thought of it, and I’m open to book suggestions as well.

If you’re interested in reading this book, check it out on Amazon
