Both classic and hilarious moments are in this video blooper reel that sprung from our Take 10 Author Series—exclusive, 10-minute webcasts with leading authors in marketing and business. These otherwise quite serious business book authors---including Nancy Duarte, Sally Hogshead, Guy Kawasaki, David Meerman Scott, Mignon Fogarty, Sandy Carter, Brian Solis and Mitch Joel---show a lighter side in these outtakes shot in various locales around the United States.

This is the stuff of outtakes,  the stuff that was cut during the editing process and not included in the final released version, but that is nonetheless too great not to share.

A few of my favorite moments:

  • Sally Hogshead describing reading in bed (and pointing out the unfortunate mishaps that sometimes happen there)

  • Guy Kawasaki's favorite FAQ about his book, Enchantment

  • Practically every scene with the always-classy and (here, anyway) understated David Meerman Scott

Check out the video below, and then check out all the authors who are part of this special MarketingProfs Take 10 Author Series ---which also includes NY Times bestselling author Dan Pink---here.
