Trust Agents is Coming

Julien Smith and Chris Brogan - by Matthew Dimakos Julien and I are pretty excited that Trust Agents is getting closer to being released. The date for publication is August 24th, but you can pre-order Trust Agents even now, if you want. As this is our first book, the experience has been pretty crazy.

We wrote the book together on Google Docs, talking over IM. It was very collaborative, sometimes with us both working on the same page at the same time. Often times, we’d send people tweets or comment on their blogs to reach out to them about parts of the books. Each time, we were excited that the very way we wrote the book related to what we talk about in the book.

In the coming months, we’ll surely encourage you to buy a copy or thirty of the book. I’ll try not to advertise it relentlessly, but I will do my best to share the experiences, and/or I will encourage some of you to pick it up, as it might relate to what you’re coming to the blog to absorb.

Julien has also set up, which we’ll use for some other experiences.

In the mean time, take a look at the nifty cover!

    I would love an audiobook on iTunes.
    I rarely have enough time to keep up with textural knowledge outside of your blog Chris. ;-)
    To busy having meaningful conversations.

    Much love and luck!
