    Story

    With wit and authority, Neil Rackham explains why traditional sales models don't work for large sales. He shows how conventional selling methods are doomed to fail in major sales. And he unfolds the enormously successful Spin strategy, using real-world examples and informative cases. The methods are controversial, and they often go against the grain of conventional sales training. But the powerful evidence Rackham presents will convince and convert you.

    Overall

    I've always been someone that hated the concept of selling until Spin Selling.
    This book frames selling in terms of solving a implied or explicit need and the process of getting the customer to that point. Very helpful.

    Would you consider the audio edition of What You Need to Know About: Project Management to be better than the print version?

    No but it is easy to listen to except for references to external content.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Does a good job of covering the material without any real examples :)


    What does Colin Mace bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It has some personality


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Validation that people at my work know nothing about project management.

    What if it happens to you? How will you respond? Some respond with little regard, others are devastated. Where there are multiple miscarriages, one can't help but wonder how to cope. Whatever shred of faith that remains is tested. Suddenly this suffering brings you to a crossroad: Will I run to God or turn away?

    If you're turned off by too much religious talk don't buy this. This audio book talks a lot about God and has a ton of bible references that loosely tie in to the pain of miscarriage. I was slightly turned off by all of the bible references however I can see how this book would be immensely valuable to someone with strong religious beliefs facing the pain of a miscarriage. In any case It thought this audio book was worthwhile to listen to.

  • The 48 Laws of Power

    Story

    Amoral, cunning, ruthless, and instructive, this piercing work distills 3,000 years of the history of power into 48 well-explicated laws. This bold volume outlines the laws of power in their unvarnished essence, synthesizing the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun-tzu, Carl von Clausewitz, and other great thinkers.

    Richard Leon says: "Not a how to guide .."
    "This is REALLY hard to listen to"
    Overall

    I keep having to rewind because it is hard to pay attention due to the boring style this is read in.
    The only way I could digest this is to have the book in front of me :(
