We all know the power of word-of-mouth and how it affects sales, but with Contagious: Why Things Catch On we can begin to know why and understand. Jonah Berger breaks the concepts down into talking points with his well-written and easy to understand six STEPPS. Business owner to Marketing professional and all those in-between will benefit from reading this book.

Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain is often criticized for being just PR. However, those who state that miss the point. Ryan teaches us through the lessons he learned, which are pure inspiration. Going from gang member and even serving time, to entrepreneur. From having the right influences, listening to the right people, and try/fail/adjust mentality we learn not to give up. Dream big. Ryan didn't try to do everything by himself but shows how, pride aside, with the right mentors and networking goals are met with accomplishments.
