Not only is Zig inspirational, he uses all his experience in sales to help you be the very best you can be at sales. He covers every aspect of sales including the technical, emotional, psychological and physical aspects in an easy to use pragmatic fashion. Best book I have had, and I have read a lot.
This was my first book by Zig Ziglar and I think it's worth investing in it. If anything just for the funny stories and the great southern accent. I had trouble getting used to the accent at first, but after a while I couldn't stop listening and I was actually looking forward to hearing a little more everyday. The sales tips are good, mainly because they are honest and you can tell the guy has actually practiced what he preaches. Some stuff is very folksy 1950's salesmanship and it can be corny, but that makes it just entertaining. I liked it.
Zig Ziglar's approach to sales does not get old, because no matter what time in history we live, we'll always be creatures of emotions. From the days of Pharaoh's to today. We think and work the same. I would highly recommend this book. It's very educational and the use of humor is perfect.
Don't waste your time thinking. Just buy this book.
