Hi Garr,

this comment is off post's topic, but I just want to say "thank you" for your book. I've just received it and after reading Guy's foreword I found that are for sure the best $29.99 spent on a book. Now I just want to finish it and "just do it".

Thank you again!

Could not agree more! I guess I am one of those helping bring the average up. I read 20-30 books a year and sometimes go back and reread parts of books.

I am anxiously waiting the arrival of Presentation Zen which I am sure I will wind up repreading many times.

Long Live Books!


I would say as well that technology has allowed me to utilize the library a lot more...now I go to my library's website, find the books I want, request them to be delivered to my library if they aren't currently on the shelf at my nearest location, and they send me an email when the books are there. How easy is that!


I would second the use of the public library as a resource for books. And it is very convenient given the ability to "order" books online from any branch and have them "delivered" to your closest local branch. Especially for people who buy 7-8 books a month, you could do a lot to reduce your environmental impact as well as save money by borrowing from the library. How many books do you really re-read? Be honest! So why not use the power of technology to help the planet. It's a win-win.


Wanted to include a link to finding a public library near you:

I have to agree with you Garr that the more involved I get in the online world, the more books I read! Although I really enjoy blogs and other electronic means of information, there is something wonderful about the experience of settling down in a comfortable chair with a good cup of coffee and a great book.

Books can also organize information in a nice, logical order which is easier to grasp than random blog posts. I think that is why we are seeing the trend for "blogs to books," much like your own. You can pull the very best of your content and distill it in such a way that it is easy to understand and act upon.

And thanks for the plug for the Meatball Sundae conversation with Seth today. I really enjoyed it and walked away more inspired than ever that New Media, or whatever you choose to call it, is doing our society a favor by allowing trust and authenticity to be the new business currency. It is about dang time!

Hi Garr, how often would you spend time reading audio books such as on Audible? Would definitely love to recommend a few books I think are great, especially when it c ones to audio like the #AskGaryVee book
