    i thought i would like this book more than i did, but i think the content and the writing style just killed the experience for me. i don't know much about vaynerchuk, but he writes as if he knows it all and is the big time, which i highly doubt. i'm sure that WineLibrary is a successfu...

    Like most books of this type, highly repetitive. I get the feeling when people write books about their ideas, they have to be repetitive just to fill some quota for minimum book size. The point can usually be made in about half or less pages. Yes, I got the point, move on. I'm a big an...

    I should preface this review by stating that while I intended to buy Gary Vaynerchuk's Thank You Economy on audio book, the opportunity came to review this book in exchange for a free copy. Based on what I've learned about, and from, Mr. Vaynerchuk up to now I didn't have to think twic...

    One of my closest friends turned me on to Gary Vaynerchuk and his podcasts. I was such a fan of his bluntness and easy to follow, action based advice that I thought I would check out his books. I didn't go in with any expectations, still being a recent fan and unsure if his voice would...

    Alas, this book is too little too late. It really should have been written 7 years ago, and should have been a blog post instead of a repetitive "no duh" manifesto for customer engagement via social media. Vaynerchuk brings nothing new to the conversation, repeats the same call to acti...

    This is another example of something that?s happened a lot of late. I was looking forward to reading it but once I actually got round to it, I was left unimpressed. The problem is that while Vaynerchuk was clearly right in what he was saying, it?s a lot less revolutionary now than ...

    Posting this review at 1:50am because I couldn't put this book down. I don't know about you, but hard to put down non-fiction is a rare bird in my world. Mr. Vaynerchuk illustrates the right and wrong ways to use social media using excellent stories, making this book fun and approa...

    The Thank You Economy is a book that really changed how I view the business world. In a world full of competition and metrics the human message by Gary to really take time to care for the end consumer in the social and technological world is really inspiring and refreshing. Giving valu...

    Much of this book is a heap of anecdotes, trite ideas and "best-practices" lists, each as obvious and useless as the other. Yes social media is a big deal, and more firms should use it to engage their customers. Authenticity is good. Hiring talent is important. Word-of-mouth is becomin...

    This is 2012 and you better not piss off Gary Vee by questioning our cultural shift towards social media, largely the humanization of brands. The book is a marketer's lesson for using social media. For those who remain unconvinced by the brute force of social media, Gary Vee will sh...

    Nothing new here, at least not if you have been living and breathing social media for the last few years. The only reason I read this book is because it made my boss "see the light". I guess it's because she's a real wine lover. :-) Nice, quick read but if you really want to understan...

    Excellent follow-up to the author's first book (Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion) and specifically deals with using every tool available to a business in order to show that they love and appreciate their customers. Businesses think they've got this covered "we ...

    This book is not what I expected. For some reason, the title made me imagine that the author had a theoretical plan for an economy based on gratitude rather than money, like instead of paying with dollars you pay with "Thank Yous." I should've known better. Anyway, the subject was b...

    This was my first Gary Vee book, and I was very impressed. I've already consumed so much of his content on his website as well, because while I was reading this book I couldn't seem to get enough of his fresh take on entrepreneurship. Its a great book on how to view business relatio...

    All books by Gary Vaynerchuk are just made to be listened too. I love how he puts all his energy and passion into reading them himself. This book wasn't all too groundbreaking for me, as a social media enthusiast without commercial bonds. But he is right in the end when he says "Thi...

    This book is as much about caring about your customers as about company culture. It is strange that so many companies treat their customers poorly or just not bad, but not great either. Yet your whole business is built upon a relationship with your customers. A ?Taker? mindset ...

    While I?m probably 5 years late to the party, this book about utilizing social media for engagement with followers and customers. It?s thought provoking as I ponder personal branding and how to define mine. Easy to read, great examples, just a little dated but hey that?s my fault...

    One of my closest friends turned me on to Gary Vaynerchuk and his podcasts. I was such a fan of his bluntness and easy to follow, action based advice that I thought I would check out his books. I didn't go in with any expectations, still being a recent fan and unsure if his voice would...

    Alas, this book is too little too late. It really should have been written 7 years ago, and should have been a blog post instead of a repetitive "no duh" manifesto for customer engagement via social media. Vaynerchuk brings nothing new to the conversation, repeats the same call to acti...

    An engaging read about social media driven entrepreneurship. Concept wise it's still current, but some of the companies are already old news. ...

    I really liked this thought-provoking and relevant look at how social media is bringing small-town shop values back into business. Vaynerchuck shows that businesses need to build long-term, personal relationships with their customers by caring about them. Social media, because it magni...

    I think I made a mistake by listening to this book on audible.com and not reading it on my iPad. Lets start with the actual content. Its solid. Not great. But solid. The vast majority of things included boarder on common sense for the savvy technophile. The author gives solid examples ...

    Gary V is one of (the few) modern gurus I follow. Why? Because he lives and thrives in Social Media, a wave that (at least) for he next few years all of us, both people and businesses, need to surf. This book carries 2 simple messages: 1 - 20th media (i.e. tv, radio, billboards, ...

    The Thank You Economy is one of the best business books I?ve read thus far. Here is a summary of the main points Gary Vaynerchuck recommends businesses implement. ?Care?about your customers, about your employees, about your brand?with everything you?ve got. Erase any ...

    Ironically, or obviously, I was introduced to this guy (entrepreneur who now helps businesses understand the technological shift of our culture and social media's impact on marketing) through a friend on Facebook sharing Vayner's newest video and telling one of his friends to check it ...

    This is another example of something that?s happened a lot of late. I was looking forward to reading it but once I actually got round to it, I was left unimpressed. The problem is that while Vaynerchuk was clearly right in what he was saying, it?s a lot less revolutionary now than ...

    I recently purchased the audio book ?The Thank You Economy? after hearing Justin & Mary speak about it in their program at WPPI and though this book is narrated by what sounds to be a well caffeinated author it was had a lot of great information about how to use social media fo...

    Posting this review at 1:50am because I couldn't put this book down. I don't know about you, but hard to put down non-fiction is a rare bird in my world. Mr. Vaynerchuk illustrates the right and wrong ways to use social media using excellent stories, making this book fun and approa...

    The Thank You Economy is a book that really changed how I view the business world. In a world full of competition and metrics the human message by Gary to really take time to care for the end consumer in the social and technological world is really inspiring and refreshing. Giving valu...

    Much of this book is a heap of anecdotes, trite ideas and "best-practices" lists, each as obvious and useless as the other. Yes social media is a big deal, and more firms should use it to engage their customers. Authenticity is good. Hiring talent is important. Word-of-mouth is becomin...

    This is 2012 and you better not piss off Gary Vee by questioning our cultural shift towards social media, largely the humanization of brands. The book is a marketer's lesson for using social media. For those who remain unconvinced by the brute force of social media, Gary Vee will sh...

    Nothing new here, at least not if you have been living and breathing social media for the last few years. The only reason I read this book is because it made my boss "see the light". I guess it's because she's a real wine lover. :-) Nice, quick read but if you really want to understan...

    Excellent follow-up to the author's first book (Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion) and specifically deals with using every tool available to a business in order to show that they love and appreciate their customers. Businesses think they've got this covered "we ...

    This book is not what I expected. For some reason, the title made me imagine that the author had a theoretical plan for an economy based on gratitude rather than money, like instead of paying with dollars you pay with "Thank Yous." I should've known better. Anyway, the subject was b...

    This was my first Gary Vee book, and I was very impressed. I've already consumed so much of his content on his website as well, because while I was reading this book I couldn't seem to get enough of his fresh take on entrepreneurship. Its a great book on how to view business relatio...

    All books by Gary Vaynerchuk are just made to be listened too. I love how he puts all his energy and passion into reading them himself. This book wasn't all too groundbreaking for me, as a social media enthusiast without commercial bonds. But he is right in the end when he says "Thi...

    I should preface this review by stating that while I intended to buy Gary Vaynerchuk's Thank You Economy on audio book, the opportunity came to review this book in exchange for a free copy. Based on what I've learned about, and from, Mr. Vaynerchuk up to now I didn't have to think twic...

    One of my closest friends turned me on to Gary Vaynerchuk and his podcasts. I was such a fan of his bluntness and easy to follow, action based advice that I thought I would check out his books. I didn't go in with any expectations, still being a recent fan and unsure if his voice would...

    Alas, this book is too little too late. It really should have been written 7 years ago, and should have been a blog post instead of a repetitive "no duh" manifesto for customer engagement via social media. Vaynerchuk brings nothing new to the conversation, repeats the same call to acti...

    An engaging read about social media driven entrepreneurship. Concept wise it's still current, but some of the companies are already old news. ...

    I think I made a mistake by listening to this book on audible.com and not reading it on my iPad. Lets start with the actual content. Its solid. Not great. But solid. The vast majority of things included boarder on common sense for the savvy technophile. The author gives solid examples ...

    Gary V is one of (the few) modern gurus I follow. Why? Because he lives and thrives in Social Media, a wave that (at least) for he next few years all of us, both people and businesses, need to surf. This book carries 2 simple messages: 1 - 20th media (i.e. tv, radio, billboards, ...

    The Thank You Economy is one of the best business books I?ve read thus far. Here is a summary of the main points Gary Vaynerchuck recommends businesses implement. ?Care?about your customers, about your employees, about your brand?with everything you?ve got. Erase any ...

    This book emphasizes that social media must be a part of your overall marketing strategy. It's not a matter of using Facebook or Twitter to send your message out to the masses in the same way as most companies have using traditional media. Rather, it must be a two-way conversation betw...

    Posting this review at 1:50am because I couldn't put this book down. I don't know about you, but hard to put down non-fiction is a rare bird in my world. Mr. Vaynerchuk illustrates the right and wrong ways to use social media using excellent stories, making this book fun and approa...

    The Thank You Economy is a book that really changed how I view the business world. In a world full of competition and metrics the human message by Gary to really take time to care for the end consumer in the social and technological world is really inspiring and refreshing. Giving valu...

    Much of this book is a heap of anecdotes, trite ideas and "best-practices" lists, each as obvious and useless as the other. Yes social media is a big deal, and more firms should use it to engage their customers. Authenticity is good. Hiring talent is important. Word-of-mouth is becomin...

    This is 2012 and you better not piss off Gary Vee by questioning our cultural shift towards social media, largely the humanization of brands. The book is a marketer's lesson for using social media. For those who remain unconvinced by the brute force of social media, Gary Vee will sh...

    Posting this review at 1:50am because I couldn't put this book down. I don't know about you, but hard to put down non-fiction is a rare bird in my world. Mr. Vaynerchuk illustrates the right and wrong ways to use social media using excellent stories, making this book fun and approa...

    The Thank You Economy is a book that really changed how I view the business world. In a world full of competition and metrics the human message by Gary to really take time to care for the end consumer in the social and technological world is really inspiring and refreshing. Giving valu...

    Much of this book is a heap of anecdotes, trite ideas and "best-practices" lists, each as obvious and useless as the other. Yes social media is a big deal, and more firms should use it to engage their customers. Authenticity is good. Hiring talent is important. Word-of-mouth is becomin...

    This is 2012 and you better not piss off Gary Vee by questioning our cultural shift towards social media, largely the humanization of brands. The book is a marketer's lesson for using social media. For those who remain unconvinced by the brute force of social media, Gary Vee will sh...

    Nothing new here, at least not if you have been living and breathing social media for the last few years. The only reason I read this book is because it made my boss "see the light". I guess it's because she's a real wine lover. :-) Nice, quick read but if you really want to understan...

    Excellent follow-up to the author's first book (Crush It!: Why NOW Is the Time to Cash In on Your Passion) and specifically deals with using every tool available to a business in order to show that they love and appreciate their customers. Businesses think they've got this covered "we ...

    This book is not what I expected. For some reason, the title made me imagine that the author had a theoretical plan for an economy based on gratitude rather than money, like instead of paying with dollars you pay with "Thank Yous." I should've known better. Anyway, the subject was b...

    This was my first Gary Vee book, and I was very impressed. I've already consumed so much of his content on his website as well, because while I was reading this book I couldn't seem to get enough of his fresh take on entrepreneurship. Its a great book on how to view business relatio...

    All books by Gary Vaynerchuk are just made to be listened too. I love how he puts all his energy and passion into reading them himself. This book wasn't all too groundbreaking for me, as a social media enthusiast without commercial bonds. But he is right in the end when he says "Thi...

    This book is as much about caring about your customers as about company culture. It is strange that so many companies treat their customers poorly or just not bad, but not great either. Yet your whole business is built upon a relationship with your customers. A ?Taker? mindset ...

    While I?m probably 5 years late to the party, this book about utilizing social media for engagement with followers and customers. It?s thought provoking as I ponder personal branding and how to define mine. Easy to read, great examples, just a little dated but hey that?s my fault...

    This Book would self destruct in four years that's how gary ended this book but at least in my condition I beg to differ cause being in a developing nation now the 2018 is the Thank You economy in most regions of my country so I found this book in the right time. How much help this boo...

    i thought i would like this book more than i did, but i think the content and the writing style just killed the experience for me. i don't know much about vaynerchuk, but he writes as if he knows it all and is the big time, which i highly doubt. i'm sure that WineLibrary is a successfu...

    Like most books of this type, highly repetitive. I get the feeling when people write books about their ideas, they have to be repetitive just to fill some quota for minimum book size. The point can usually be made in about half or less pages. Yes, I got the point, move on. I'm a big an...

    Some authors are able to weave what could be a decent essay into a masterbatory 200 page diatribe about social media. Way to go, now you're an "author." ...

    I should preface this review by stating that while I intended to buy Gary Vaynerchuk's Thank You Economy on audio book, the opportunity came to review this book in exchange for a free copy. Based on what I've learned about, and from, Mr. Vaynerchuk up to now I didn't have to think twic...

    One of my closest friends turned me on to Gary Vaynerchuk and his podcasts. I was such a fan of his bluntness and easy to follow, action based advice that I thought I would check out his books. I didn't go in with any expectations, still being a recent fan and unsure if his voice would...

    Alas, this book is too little too late. It really should have been written 7 years ago, and should have been a blog post instead of a repetitive "no duh" manifesto for customer engagement via social media. Vaynerchuk brings nothing new to the conversation, repeats the same call to acti...

    I really liked this thought-provoking and relevant look at how social media is bringing small-town shop values back into business. Vaynerchuck shows that businesses need to build long-term, personal relationships with their customers by caring about them. Social media, because it magni...

    I think I made a mistake by listening to this book on audible.com and not reading it on my iPad. Lets start with the actual content. Its solid. Not great. But solid. The vast majority of things included boarder on common sense for the savvy technophile. The author gives solid examples ...

    Gary V is one of (the few) modern gurus I follow. Why? Because he lives and thrives in Social Media, a wave that (at least) for he next few years all of us, both people and businesses, need to surf. This book carries 2 simple messages: 1 - 20th media (i.e. tv, radio, billboards, ...

    The Thank You Economy is one of the best business books I?ve read thus far. Here is a summary of the main points Gary Vaynerchuck recommends businesses implement. ?Care?about your customers, about your employees, about your brand?with everything you?ve got. Erase any ...
