Gary VaynerchukI obviously can’t tell you a whole lot more about Gary Vaynerchuk’s new book – “Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy Social World” (HarperBusiness) – than what you can easily discover yourself on, say, the book’s Amazon page. So please consider this post a friendly announcement, and not an actual endorsement. (I haven’t gotten around to requesting a review copy, so I haven’t read it.)

But with that said, I’m nevertheless fairly confident in saying that if you’re someone who takes social media seriously – especially if you’re someone who’s tasked with promoting your company’s or business’ products or services via social media – you’d do very well to pick up a copy.

Gary VaynerchukI actually never did get around to reading “The Thank You Economy” (HarperBusiness), but I did tear through Gary Vee’s “Crush It! Why Now is the Time to Cash in On Your Passion” (Harper Studio) when it first came out back in late 2009 … and it totally blew me away.

“Crush It” is packed full of all sorts of wonderful, entrepreneurial-style tips, although I think a good part of the reason I ended up reading the book in (more or less) one sitting had just as much to do with Gary’s tireless enthusiastic style, which somehow manages to seep through whenever the guy so much as opens his mouth.

Maintaining an endlessly positive mental attitude is clearly of utmost importance in the DIY-style creative entrepreneurial world, and you’re probably not going to find a more effectively enthusiastic cheerleader for the lifestyle than Gary Vee anytime too soon. Personally, I’d recommend his work just as much for the energetic shot in the arm it offers as I would for the valuable tips and instructions he’s so fond of sharing. And don’t forget to spend some time on his blog, which is always filled with the same sort of never-quit advice you’ll find in his books.

One more thing: If you’ve got four minutes to spare, watch the video below, in which Gary Vee chats about Shopify and the Huffington Post’s Build A Business Competition. It seems like a pretty interesting deal: Over $500,000 in cash, prizes and mentoring sessions is being given away; click here to check it out now.
