    Are you really motivated to achieve your dreams? The answer may surprise you. Research shows that as many as 80% of us over-estimate our level of motivation. No wonder so many dreams die unfulfilled, so many goals remain forever out of reach. Think about the important goals you could achieve if you were truly motivated. Don't you owe it to yourself to give them your best possible shot?

    As was noted earlier the audio-book draws heavily from Beeler's faith in Christianity, which is fine but get's tiresome. IMO way too much time is spent on proseltyzing.

    I was hoping for a more linear approach than what was delivered. He comes to the point eventually, but it would be nice if there were more bullet points at the end or beginning of chapters emphasizing his central points. Nitpicky perhaps but useful especially in an audio format.

    Dig Your Well Before You're Thirsty contains Harvey's gold-chip advice, accumulated over a lifetime of business success, on how to build and maintain the network you need. Harvey guarantees you'll never be more than a phone call away from a person in the position to help you get what you want - whether it's the job opportunity of a lifetime or a lifetime partner, the sales prospect of your dreams or the career advice you've only dreamed of. Harvey shows you how to create a network of trusted, valuable contacts that is worth its weight in platinum.

    Thomas says: "Very Good"
    "Not Hands on Practical"
    Overall

    I like Harvey's reading style, and I enjoyed his earlier "Sharks" book very much, but I found this book lacked practical substance. It's long on homilies about the benefits of having a network, and the pitfalls of not having one, but short on practical advice.

    I give it a C-

    A comprehensive look at every aspect of the sales process. Has been described by hundreds of business leaders as the best book on selling ever written. Covers every topic in sales including: prospecting, attitude management, sales presentations, overcoming sales resistence, closing sales, time and territory management, nonverbal communication, how to sell to different personality styles and much more.

    Overall

    If you're looking for sales platitudes and a re-hash of worn out pitches (e.g., "Mr. Prospect, if I could show you a way to save on your XXX you'd be interested in something like that wouldn't you?"), then this is the audiobook for you.

    If that's not what you're looking for, (and who is?) my advice is skip "Soft Sell".

    I must admit I gave up on this one after 1 hour and 45 minutes. Maybe it finishes well?
