Publisher's Summary

Follow the Geeks tells the stories of 10 digital entrepreneurs who transformed their careers for the 21st century. See the risks, setbacks, and innovations that defined them. You'll find programmers and photographers, podcasters and philanthropists. No matter what industry you work in, what size your company is, or if you're launching your own startup, these stories provide a trail of wisdom for the future. Follow the Geeks reimagined the idea of a book for the digital age by turning it into a conversation with listeners. As the authors were writing the book, they shared each chapter online for a limited time and got amazing feedback. This final version of the book includes the best comments from the community, featured at the end of each chapter and published here for the first time.
This is the 2.0 version of the Follow the Geeks audiobook. Based on feedback from readers and listeners, we recorded a new version read by one of the authors. If you purchased the original version of the audiobook on Audible and would like access to the new version, send us a message at followthegeeksbook.com/contact.

A must listen for fans of Twit.tv

If you listen to Twit, you'll be familiar with most or even all the geeks featured here, and their stories are fascinating.

That being said, I'm only giving this 3 stars as the politics of this book are vomit inducing. Almost once a chapter the authors stop to wax idiotic about the plight of women in tech. Ironically by claiming that women can't do anything, the authors themselves are the worst kind of sexists.

There is a saying in film, "show, don't tell", and the authors should have adopted that line of thought for this book.

I listen to these books to inspired by the geeks, not to feel sorry for them.

So much better than the first release

This version (read by Jason Hiner) is so much better than the original. Jason's delivery is natural and conversational, and accurate. Do not bother with the original Dan Patterson version.

A geeky group hug, and I was invited.

After listening to TWIT for years, this was like the back storey of many of the people that I feel I know dearely. Narrated by a voice that I know so well. It feelt like a group hug of many dear friends and I was included. Thank you all.
