I’m truly excited to share a bit of news with you…
While this isn’t the formal launch of my new book, today represents a significant milestone for me.
As of today, Engage is available for pre-order on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million, and Borders, with shipments expected to arrive sometime in mid-to-late February. Other sites will go live soon.
This post represents the first time that I’ve publicly released the title…Engage. And, I also join good friends Chris Brogan, Steve Garfield, David Meerman Scott, Marsha Collier, Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah as a fellow author at Wiley.
This book also serves as a touchstone in its own right for me personally. If you notice, the branding and title of my blog has changed. I’ve done so to intentionally reflect the true positioning and value of this book. It’s written for champions and executives alike in business, marketing, branding, interactive, service, and communications. It’s designed to help bring everyone to the table.
I’ll write more about it later…but in the meantime, I wanted to share the news…

That's fantastic news. Will definitely be worth reading!
Does this mean there is another SXSW book signing in your future?
Wesley…stand by for news on that one. 🙂
Sweet! Definitely a great read!
I hope so! You tell me 😉
Congrats Brian. Sounds engaging 🙂
Indeed it is!
Congratulations. Before even touching it, the cover reminds me of the things in my life that have motivated, serving to keep me on track. Can't wait!
Oh that's great! I hope you enjoy it!
Perfect title! Looking forward to this.
Thank you Jack!
The Preorder link is coming up with an error.
I think it works now…try http://bit.ly/engageme
Thanks looking forward to the read.
Brian – Yay!!! Congrats and I can't wait to read it. Hope to get this one signed 🙂
Awesome! Looking forward to another great read Brian- Keep up the excellent work!
Looks like a great read, Brian! Congrats!
Thanks man! Hope all is well!
Nice, Brian! Congrats. Looking forward to reading the new book!
Congratulations…very exciting news for you! Great cover art too!
Congrats on the book! It looks like you've created yet another masterpiece. 😉
Britt, wow, thank you. I hope so!
Look forward to reading the book. I am currently working on a new ground breaking product in the Tennis world. Marketing is always the most important thing.
WOOOOO—Can't wait to see the goodness from all your hard work! Way to crank that. 😉
Thank you Karen! Let's toast soon!
I look forward to reading it!
Howard, that rocks! Hey, btw, I saw your email. On the road and will reply asap!
This is great Brian. For the book signing you should dress up as Jean-Luc Picard. Engage!
Engage! I guess I need a Number One!
Great title and cover art – can't wait to dig in. Congratulations.
Thank you so much. It was probably the most challenging part of the process – and it represents the second title and cover art. I'll post the previous one soon. 🙂
Congratulations on finishing your http://bit.ly/engageme book so fast! How long did it take? LMK when you're in NYC as I'd love to do a special Digital Somethings for your book launch.
Thanks @db…started it in July/August…let's do something in NYC!
I will purchase said book once I have completed the others. Also, can I point out that I would pay at least twice that for a year-long subscription to a monthly podcast colloquium with you, a couple other social media voices and then Sven Birkerts/Geoffrey Nunberg/Umberto Eco/Jonathan Culler/etc. discussing wider transformational changes with the advent of new media technologies. Just a thought =) – Mike
That's a great thought…will have to think about this.
Congratulations, Brian! Judging from the exceptional quality of your posts in recent months (research-heavy, thoughtfully written, etc)… I know the book is going to be amazing. Now what's it going to take for a book signing down here in the ATL? You have lots of fans in town… including this girl! 🙂
I think we're going to do a little something in ATL in advance of the release. Let's get you talking to @krystyl so we can coordinate.
Awesome! You really should. I'll help Krystyl however I can! http://scr.im/court
Congrats. I'm also with Wiley. Clearly I'm in good company! 🙂
Aaron, I think I'm the one in good company!
Awesome awesome awesome!!! 🙂
bacon bacon bacon celebration!
Bacon-wrapped-bacon… I'll buy! 😉
Congratulations Brian!! #preordered 🙂
Kristy, thank you! I appreciate it!
Great News Brian..
I'm excited for the “real” launch!
In this case, you can definitely judge a book by it's cover when it's by Brian Solis. Great News & Great Cover Art too…
Wow, so excited for you, Brian! I love the cover art, and I am sure it's even better inside. You are a book-writing dynamo! Can't WAIT to read it!
Thank you so much! Dinner soon? Tell gregarious to come down on caltrain and we'll meet after work since you're nearby!
Yes! For sure! Just ping us, and we'll be there – you are the busiest one of the 3 of us, Mr. I-Travel-More-Than-Fedex 🙂
Awesome! This is great Brian!
Thank you Michael!
Great news! Look forward to reading it! Cover looks great – and content sounds of the moment!
Bernie, I hope you like it. Much passion went into it!
Congrats Brian! I need to get my review of the first book up and make room for this one.
Congrats Brian!! I will be picking myself up a copy of this for sure… When's the launch?
Congratulations on both the book and your move to Wiley, Brian!! This is terrific news, and I'll be glad to recommend your book(s) to clients and colleagues.
Thanks Cathryn! Great to see you the other night! These are exciting times in which we live…

Jim, it's been awhile man! Thank you…looking forward to your book! 🙂
I'll make a formal announcement about that soon! It'll be something truly awesome. 🙂
Huge congratulations, Brian. A massive achievement, especially on a personal note in defining and articulating your own brand and getting it to market. I've learned so much from your posts and look forward to the book immensely. I'll order it today and let others know that its out. Enjoy your relative freedom before the book tour. I'm sure you lost more than a little sleep on the way. Best, Simon mainwaring
Simon, thank you for all of your support over time. I truly appreciate it!
Congratulations, Brian! Your long form writing deserves to be highlighted in a more appropriate medium, and I think this is it!
Scott, thank you for so much for everything. You've been a big help over the years!
Sweet! Definitely looking forward to getting my hands on this! “Napa Valley Tweetup featuring Brian Solis book-signing” has a nice ring to it!
Gabriel, yes! Sounds good…later in the year?
Love it! Writing my Bachelor Thesis concerning this topic! How engagement Marketing impacts on a brand's success and I will also do my own study on this. Would love to get in touch somehow! Getting more and more motivated thanks to you…unfortunately there are too many Profs that don't share this passion 🙁 Looking forward to read it soon!!!
Thank you so much. Lead the change!
Congratulations Brian! I look forward to reading your new book. Will you have a kindle version available?
Thank you Cassie, I look forward to you reading it 😉 – There will be a kindle version too!

Absolutely…stay tuned: http://www.briansolis.com/appearances/
Great news, looking forward to read.
Thank you Tor!
I'll definitely be buying the print book, but any chance of releasing it as an Audiobook Brian? I'm in the car and on the iPod way too much lately so it's easier for me to listen, lol. Congrats on the new book, and here's to continued success, Cheers!
Thanks Mike. I think I need to work on this!
Please do. I devour all of my reading material via audio these days, and not having access to your new book on my iPod is somewhat painful 😉
Congratulations, Brian. With your insight and talent, this book cannot help but become the standard for the new web marketing industry.
That means alot coming from you…thank you.
I am based in Ireland and really enjoy reading your blog posts. I'll certainly buy your new book. I love the title and picture on the cover by the way and am looking forward to the content. Make sure to let us know when it's available for purchase.
Will do Ian! Appreciate the support.
Can't wait for the book Brian. Any plans on releasing it via Kindle? Also looking forward to hearing you speak in Sydney soon. See you in Oz..
Shane, thank you. Kindle will be avail shortly after print… 🙂
Just became a fan of you on Facebook. Love the title of the book, totally agree….will pick it up, can't wait to read it.
Appreciate it Michael!
Brian, excellent title! Can't wait to check it out.
Thank you Jose! Hope you enjoy it!
This is very exciting Brian! I look forward to reading it!
Alright! Can't wait for your feedback!

Congratulations on the new book. Excited to review it and share with my tweeps
Thank you Warren!
so excited for you. thank you for sharing!
Me too! 🙂
great cover design! and great move linking kutcher to your book. definitively worth waiting for it.
have contents on media convergence as well? (i.e. doing that engagement using f2f digital technologies?)
Great News, Brian. I can't wait to get my copy of your book. As I noted in my bog, “Brian Solis Is Spot On!!” I'll have to write a review as soon as I get a copy. All the best.
Thank you Jeff!
Get this book on pre-order today. Solis can be trusted for his views on social media!
Appreciate it Jeff, thank you for the support!
I'm from germany and I loved “Putting the public back in Public Relations”. I'll buy this book, unsighted. Keep up the great work, you're my inspiration, especially when it comes to communications and PR 2.0.
PS: powered by Ashton Kutcher? the blagirls guy :-)) ..nice nice
Can't wait to read!
Will it be sold world wide?
I believe so…
Awesome! its hard to get the book by Chris Brogan in my country, hopefully this is easier =)
Really enjoyed the book and your panel at SXSW. I turned a non marketing minded friend of mine to it and he loves it.
but its like they depict engagement is like chaining yourself but its not like that…
