<p>Four-time <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author Gary Vaynerchuk offers new lessons and inspiration drawn from the experiences of dozens of influencers and entrepreneurs who rejected the predictable corporate path in favor of pursuing their dreams by building thriving businesses and extraordinary personal brands.</p><p>In his 2009 international bestseller <em>Crush It,</em> Gary insisted that a vibrant personal brand was crucial to entrepreneurial success, In <em>Crushing It!,</em> Gary explains why that’s even more true today, offering his unique perspective on what has changed and what principles remain timeless. He also shares stories from other entrepreneurs who have grown wealthier—and not just financially—than they ever imagined possible by following <em>Crush It</em> principles.

That’s what <em>Crushing It</em>! teaches readers to do.</p><p>In this lively, practical, and inspiring book, Gary dissects every current major social media platform so that anyone, from a plumber to a professional ice skater, will know exactly how to amplify his or her personal brand on each. He offers both theoretical and tactical advice on how to become the biggest thing on old standbys like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, and Snapchat; podcast platforms like Spotify, Soundcloud, iHeartRadio, and iTunes; and other emerging platforms such as Musical.ly. For those with more experience, <em>Crushing It!</em> illuminates some little-known nuances and provides innovative tips and clever tweaks proven to enhance more common tried-and-true strategies.</p><p><em>Crushing It!</em> 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 to living life on your own terms.</p>

<p><strong>#1 <em>New York Times</em> Bestseller</strong></p><p><strong>Over 1 million copies sold</strong></p><p>In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.</p><p>For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. <em>The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k</em> is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. </p><p>Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. </p><p>There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, <em>The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k</em> is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.</p>

<b>Instant <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><BR> <BR> <b>A simple, practical, and straightforward guide to understanding Transcendental Meditation from world authority Bob Roth.</b><BR><BR>Oprah Winfrey and Jerry Seinfeld. Ray Dalio and Ellen DeGeneres. Gwyneth Paltrow and Howard Stern. Tom Hanks and Gisele Bündchen.<BR> <BR>What do they have in common? The answer is a Transcendental Meditation teacher named Bob Roth, who has spent the past forty-five years helping many thousands of people access their innate creativity and power through this simple, nonreligious technique. Roth’s students range from titans of business and the arts to federal prisoners, from war-scarred veterans to overworked moms and dads.<BR> <BR>Medical experts agree that the epidemic of stress is damaging our physical and emotional health at younger and younger ages. While there is no one single cure, the Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple practice that dramatically changes how we respond to stress and life’s challenges. With scientifically proven benefits— reduced stress and anxiety, and improved focus, sleep, resilience, creativity, and memory, to name a few—this five-thousand-year-old technique has a clear and direct impact on our very modern problems.<BR> <BR>Once a skeptic, Roth trained under Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the twentieth century’s foremost scientist of consciousness and meditation, and has since become one of the most experienced and sought-after meditation teachers in the world. In <i>Strength in Stillness</i>, Roth breaks down the science behind Transcendental Meditation in a new, accessible way. He highlights the three distinct types of meditation—Focused Attention, Open Monitoring, and Self-Transcending—and showcases the evidence that the third, Self-Transcending, or Transcendental Meditation, is a uniquely accessible, effective, and efficient way to reduce stress, access inner power, and build resilience.<BR> <BR>Free of gimmicks, mystical verbiage, and obscure theory, <i>Strength in Stillness</i> is a clear and practical guide to calming mind, body, and spirit.

<p><strong>Go for the win! Achieve excellence and be better than you’ve ever been!</strong></p><p>In his years as a professional ice-skater, Olympic Gold Medalist Scott Hamilton learned to embrace the mind-set of working hard to “beat” the competition. But it seems competition has gotten a bad rap these days. We’ve bought into the belief that it is unfair to participants to rank performance. Yet competition is in fact a <em>good</em> thing because it’s about working toward excellence.</p><p><em>Finish First</em> is a wake-up call for business leaders, entrepreneurs, spouses, parents, and even students to stop settling for mediocre and begin to revitalize their intrinsic will to achieve excellence and go for the win. Most of us feel we were made for something more, but we’re often afraid to allow ourselves to be competitive because we think our finishing first might somehow rob others of their chance to shine. This book encourages the hidden potential, the champion within all of us, to come out—which eventually brings our family, marriage, career, business, and the world around us the greatest possible good.</p>

I’ve spent most of my life studying and applying the best lessons I’ve learned from self-help, philosophy, history, religion, politics, finance, business, marketing, entrepreneurship, leadership, health, exercise and studying the most successful people in history. I share what I learned after hitting the wall and failing to graduate college so I could stop sabotaging my success and employ the superior fundamental principles of the science of high achievement that enabled me to get every job and career I went after upon graduation, started a mortgage and real estate company that netted a $60,000 profit in the first month of operation, and grew it from just an idea into 7 companies grossing almost $8 million dollars per year in revenue in only six years with two business partners and 40 employees. Then I liquidated everything before the housing crash of 2007-2008 to become a full time life coach. I went from making $500,000 per year to nothing and struggled tremendously to figure out the right business model for the first 5 years. I was so determined to succeed in my new business that I even resorted to waiting tables 3 days a week for 10 months, while sleeping on my dad’s couch for several years living like a broke college student, until I figured it out and my new business took off. I have grown it into a multi-million dollar business from nothing but an idea that helps change the lives of thousands of men and women from all over the world, and every country, cultural and religious background. I’ve made millions, lost millions and made it all back again many times over by applying the best wisdom I’ve learned from the most successful people in the world, past and present. I share with you my personal journey of how I did it and continue to do it, and what I’ve learned so you can avoid the mistakes I’ve made, and get from where you are to where you want to be in the quickest way possible. There’s a reason why high achievers are able to consistently achieve their dreams over the course of their lives, despite suffering many setbacks and challenges, and my book will teach you how to do the same thing in your own life. If you apply what I teach, you’ll get even better results than you’re currently getting.
