"Go Direct! is pretty much the battle cry of the new economy. I believe what Jim Kukral wrote with all my heart. Why? Because I LIVE it." - Chris Brogan, author, The Freaks Shall Inherit the Earth"

"Go Direct! is undoubtedly the best marketing book I’ve read in years."

Amanda Palmer: The Art of Asking
"Jim has written a manifesto of sorts for the entrepreneurial content creator. It's about creation and distribution, but really it's about relationships and how we think about our art and the people we do it for. The future of content is more personal, less compromised. The future of distribution is more personal, less structured. This book has given me a course to plot that fits more with the way I see the world."
Go Direct! is more than a book. It's a visionary manifesto that busts through the monolithic stranglehold many traditional middlemen/gatekeepers (publishers, distributors, agents, ticket brokers) impose on creative artists. Fear not! Here is an absolute way out for any writer, musician, comedian, or artist, if one is willing to take a risk. And Jim Kukral leads the way. His wise new book ratchets up the revolution of indie creativity and empowers all content creators to overhaul the way they think about the future of their craft and reaching a global audience - without a gatekeeper. See Louis C.K. See Macklemore, J.K. Rowling, Beyonce, Amanda Palmer, and others. As a writer, I'm thrilled to put the work Go Direct! has done for me into practice. Now.
