I’m going to keep this short and simple. I rarely, (don’t even remember the last time) I’ve recommended a book but I just finished reading Chronic Marketer by Brad Gosse and it was ACES.
FUCKING EXCELLENT. Best book I’ve ever read, and I’ve read at least 1,000. The words FUCKING EXCELLENT cover it. This guy is literally a spitting image of myself. After reading this book, I know I have to go back and read it again and start comparing his ideas and realism. Also, this isn’t a paid review or have an affiliate link in it. Not my style.
In case you didn’t catch it, the book is called Chronic Marketer and if I didn’t have some really fucking vindictive people in my life, I would tell you the EXACT reason I picked up this book. But, I just can’t come out and say it. However, if you are a regular reader here or have met me in person, the title “Chronic Marketer” and the cover should reveal to you all you need to know why I immediately went and grabbed this book off of Amazon.
Now I know I’ve got hundreds of Grinders here on the blog and in the Private Forums who will find this book EXTREMELY entertaining because of the state Brad was probably in when he wrote it.
To be honest, the book was the “realest” book I’ve ever read. So much of what Brad has done (that I know of from researching online and Warrior Forum) resembles a lot of what I used to do as an Internet Marketer. While I still am an Internet Marketer, I’ve diversified heavily into our large Membership Site, our Mobile CPA Affiliate Network and our Mobile Ad Tracker. I can read each one of his chapters and immediately just from the headline of the chapter alone, I knew I was going to learn something.
I don’t want to go into any of the lessons specifically in this post, I’ll be doing that in the following days as I start breaking down each chapter and reflecting on my experiences. I think this is just the inspiration I needed to let loose on some of this stuff I got built up inside. The book is well-written with broken up paragraphs, scannable pages, and some very witty writing. I know you’re going to see some titles that really strike a cord with you.
The 6 biggest points which are highlighted on the outside of the book:
- Embrace Your Laziness
- Build An Automated Business
- Have Fun
- Earn The Envy Of Your Peers
- Forget Your Fears And Flaws
- Change Rules In Your Favor
Finally, someone who gets it! Chronic Marketer is on Kindle for $9.99 or Paperback for $12.60. I of course, got the paperback.
If you end up reading it, let me know what you think. Personally, I read the book during a “moments of clarity” so I could enjoy it that much more later on when I enter my “rise and grind” state. Amazing book Brad Gosse, True Boss.
PS: If you’re one of those Warrior Forum eBook fan boys/girls, this post isn’t part of some JV Launch. This was a short and enthusiastic overview of the Chronic Marketer Book. It looks like a lot of marketers are promoting this book as Affiliates (which is cool), I just wanted to point out this post was simple what I thought of the book.
