According to Klaff, creating and presenting a great pitch isn’t an art - it’s a simple science. Applying the latest findings in the field of neuroeconomics, while sharing eye-opening stories of his method in action, Klaff describes how the brain makes decisions and responds to pitches.

One truly great pitch can improve your career, make you a lot of money - and even change your life. Success is dependent on the method you use, not how hard you try. "Better method, more money," Klaff says. "Much better method, much more money." Klaff is the best in the business because his method is much better than anyone else’s. And now it’s yours.

Apply the tactics and strategies outlined in Pitch Anything to engage and persuade your audience - and you’ll have more funding and support than you ever thought possible.

    "Very old-school approach to selling."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This is a fluff piece of BS where the author is way over confident and list a collection of tips and tricks to give a presentation. But in the end it is a mismatch with the way people buy today and misleading.

    "You Know what to do, This Book tells you HOW to do"

    I'm in Sales, I've listened to a LOT of sales strategy and business books.
    I got more value in the first 7 minutes, than I have in hours and hours of other business books.
    7 minutes in, and I was like OMG this is huge..This is a road map, a repeatable method to follow, to get more sales.

    Just finished listening to the Audio version of Pitch Anything, and started re-listening to it again. Very informative, I've already started implementing what I'm learning. Thank you Oren for all the time and effort you put into learning and sharing this method.

    You want to be "That Sales Pro" That everyone compares success too?
    -Then get this book, and use it.

    "Misleading"
    What would have made Pitch Anything better?

    Actual instruction and explanation and not just marketing for the author's website and courses


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A different author


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Too self centered


    What character would you cut from Pitch Anything?

    The Author

    Story
    "Making it Happen"
    Where does Pitch Anything rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Out of my entire library this book resides in the top 10.


    What other book might you compare Pitch Anything to and why?

    If Chip and Dan Heath's "Made to Stick" is the "stickiness" of an idea, then "Pitch Anything" is the "applicator". Metaphorically, these two books combine to create the "PostIt Note" of goal driven idea sharing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did...and I harnessed the material two days later when pitching my CEO on a new business idea.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not about selling. It is about reaching your audience in a way that harnesses the neuroscience behind how we receive and respond to new information. I should also mention that I was able to speak personally with Oren Klaff before pitching my CEO. He responded to my request for help in less than 48 hrs of my email. His intuitive understanding of my issue was spot on, and his advice was sincere and extremely helpful.

    "Interesting Ideas and points of reference"
    What made the experience of listening to Pitch Anything the most enjoyable?

    Liked the story telling albeit a bit brash but some great everyday references although in the book a little more in the high stakes game for me to relate to.

    Story
    "Don't be decieved, this book is not about sales!"
    What did you love best about Pitch Anything?

    This book is way more than that. It covers aspects of business and sales, but the concepts can be used in your personal life too. I bought it because it was recommended by Internet Business Mastery. I loved it even though I do not pitch. I am developing a product and will be using the techniques Oren describes to help me find investors.

    One thing I didnt like was the narration. It was boring and tedious and lacked emotion. Weird also listening to someone read exactly from the book without modifying for the audio audience, you will notice what I mean when you buy it. Thankfully the content is brilliant.

    Highly recommended this book if you are an entreprenuer or business owner wanting to learn about human nature and how to identify situations where you could produce a better outcome or the outcome you want.

    There is also a complimentary monthly membership program that Oren has setup to support any further learnings.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Oren because he has the credibility and done his research to back his findings.


    What three words best describe Stephen Bowlby’s performance?

    Not that impressed, boring and lacked emotion. Also think when someone is reading a book that is a recollection of the author and you know they are not the author that maybe they should consider modifying the narration just slightly. As with some of the references in the book that don't make sense in an audio.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was really impressed and had never thought of human interaction in this way.

    "I love this book!"
    Would you listen to Pitch Anything again? Why?

    Yes. There are few books out there that I would consider reading a second time. I read the hard copy of this book and plan to listen to the Audible version once every year or two.

    It has been said that Pitch Anything "belongs on the bookshelf next to Cialdini’s Influence and Strauss’ The Game." There are a few other books written on human influence that I could add to that list, but I think that sums it up. Whether you are in politics, venture capital, sales, business or in any other profession in which influencing others is crucial, trust me: Read this book.

    "Brilliant, Unorthodox Selling Methods!"
    What made the experience of listening to Pitch Anything the most enjoyable?

    Highly recommend to anyone that wants to develop a stronger sales pitch. Having the buyer chase you instead of the other way around. Traditional sales methods are flipped entirely. I have already applied Oren's techniques into my pitch and I have gained more power over deals.

    "How to motivate others to help you succeed"
    Would you listen to Pitch Anything again? Why?

    I will listen to this book over and over again. Why? Simple this is packed full of specific tools, methods, styles, and how to frame anything to your advantage.

    Imagine being able to go into a meeting, and have the entire group hanging on every word you say. If you implement the information in this book you will achieve just that and much more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The presentation was like I was sitting down with Oren and he was talking directly to me. I absolutely love it


    What about Stephen Bowlby’s performance did you like?

    I was totally captivated by his performance and to be honest I forgot I was listening to a performance. Stephen Bowlby did a great job.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There are many parts of this book that made me smile, laugh, and have WOW moments.


    Any additional comments?

    A must read!
