'All roads used to lead to Rome. Today, they lead to Beijing.' When The Silk Roads was published in 2015, it became an instant classic. A major reassessment of world history, it compelled us to look at the past from a different perspective. The New Silk Roads brings this story up to date, addressing the present and future of a world that is changing dramatically. Following the Silk Roads eastwards, from Europe through to China, by way of Russia and the Middle East, The New Silk Roads provides a timely reminder that we live in a world that is profoundly interconnected.

Gary Vaynerchuk—the inspiring and unconventional entrepreneur who introduced us to the concept of crush it—knows how to get things done, have fun, and be massively successful. A marketing and business genius, Gary had the foresight to go beyond traditional methods and use social media tools such as Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube to reach an untapped audience that continues to grow.

If you could sum up #AskGaryVee in three words, what would they be?

value value value

What was one of the most memorable moments of #AskGaryVee?

His laughter when his team were asking questions, this person really cares about those people in his life.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Yes, one other. This one is far better. The audio quality is better and his flow is better because he's not reading a script 95% of the time.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Get ready to be told what is and what isn't

Any additional comments?

Love Gary, he is going to be a big figure in the business world for the next 50 years!
