I wrote a book about YouTube for O’Reilly Media, Inc. called YouTube: An Insider’s Guide to Climbing the Charts. The book walks you through creating and customizing your account - writing, lighting and shooting your videos - finding and joining the YouTube community - applying for the Partnership Program - getting your videos seen - and much more.

The book features not only my insight (which has earned me over four million total video views), but also interviews with YouTube rock stars LisaNova, WhatTheBuckShow, liamkylesullivan (Kelly), the vlogbrothers, nalts, the fiveawesomegirls and even current YouTube staff member George Strompolos (who runs the entire YouTube Partner Program)! YouTube: An Insider’s Guide to Climbing the Charts is now available at Amazon and Target, and in all bookstores worldwide.
