Author makes a few solid and very basic sales points, but the majority of the book is fluff. All around not incredibly helpful. This book could have been 1-2 hours long. Author wasted a lot of time stroking his ego and indirectly cursing in pig Latin...Google the main points and save your credits. Not bad but not
worth the money or time.
I listen everyday in my car, as well as when I am relaxing at home. I listen this audio before I go on a sale... it just keeps your training fresh.... and pumps you up!
Well, Grant Cardone also authors and narrates two other audios which are equally incredible, in my opinion.... The 10X Rule and If You're not First, You're Last!.... besides Think and Grow Rich, I think these are the only audios you need for success.
He tells it like it is!.... No B.S.... and he knows his stuff... Great motivator and.Great Salesman!
No, I periodically listen to it, over and over.... I drill it in my head
I have listened to different speakers for 25 years, and Grant Cardone is on the top of my List. He is very unique in every which way. I would not listen if he wasn't the narrator... He's that good! ... He also shows by example, which is inspiring. Check him out on youtube

Most definitely, the audio book has the added advantage of a Grant Cardone performance, and what a performance it is. If he ever gets tired of sales (highly unlikely...) he could always read books for Audible.com and would probably be better than most narrators ;-))
Pitch Anything by Oren Klaff
I can only recommend this book to anyone in sales. Grant Cardone will change your thought process. I listen to the book while working out at the gym and I'm replaying various chapters in my car. Once you've listened to it, rinse and repeat.
Yes I would, Everyday for 2 hrs/day for 90days - this book will get your mind right as a Salesmen
It changed for me what it means to be in sales, and I realized that there is not never not a time that I am not selling something, someone, or myself, am I not.
Grant Cardone is the Man, One Hundred Grand!!! meaning if you read this book and apply it to your Sales Career, there is not any reason you will not never not ever not have a six figure year.
Yes, Increased Confidence in my sales
Must Read for any Business Person
If he would not have pitched Dianetics and Scientology and just stuck to sales info.
The pitching of Dianetics
By trying to sell Dianetics
I would have cut the part where he mentions a book that he says is important to understanding people so you can sell, then won't tell you the title of the book so you have to call his company, and then finding out that he is trying to sell Dianetics.
I don't care what your belief system is, I will buy good products and services from anyone of any faith, but do not try to pitch your ideology as part of you product, especially in a dishonest and ambiguous way. That is incredibly unprofessional and inappropriate. I gave the book 2 stars instead of 1 because the info. is decent.
The style was way over the top. There was some good information in there but as soon as he started pushing a book from L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology I knew I had had enough. Let me sum up the book - be positive - be persistent - take action.
Motivational, Eye-Opening, Hilarious.
Grant calls you out! I absolutely love it, he puts things in a relative way, the book kept me interested because he is so personable and says whats on his mind so matter how blunt it may seem.
He positive attitude, I feel like I am having a conversation with my father or grandfather.
Grant Cardone has lots of great information that you can use to help you with your sales career.
Grant Cardone reads his own book but never really stays on script giving many extra insight to his thinking in this audiobook. I would say if your in sales you want to be a closer. If you can't close you aren't selling anything. This book has everything you need to be a closer except the heart. You have to provide that yourself along with commitment, dedication, and persistence. This is a must read for anyone who ever wants to accomplish anything in life.
This book was purchased for my own education.
I have been in medical device sales for 15 years selling multi-million dollar pieces of equipment. So I was looking for a strategy or new view vs the typical sales models i.e SPIN, CSS etc This book applies more to possibly real estate or network marketing professionals. Working 10X harder, having lunch at popular places to be seen and making connections isn't a strategy, that's just sales 101 which is where the majority of this book falls. Grant does have moments where he is motivating. He also goes off script several times and comes across extremely arrogant in his delivery and often his verbiage is incorrect. I had to force myself not to turn off the audio several times. I have no doubt he is successful monetarily, however I think its more due to work ethic vs actual sales talent based on what is in this book. The book does have its pearls, however it is nothing new vs a lot of the other generic sales books. I thought it was somewhat funny how he said several of the best sales authors out there where not that good. IE. Carnegie, Tracy just to name a few. Ultimately, I listened to the whole audio waiting for that moment of info when I could say " yes, this is the reason I purchased this book for that thought or strategy" However the audio finished before I ever heard that message.
I just bought and listened 2 times in the last 2 days to Pitch Anything.It is more of the type of book I was looking for. So it could be on me that I went into the book with unreal expectations of what I was getting.
He is passionate about what he is saying.
"Cardone is Gripping"
I haven't read the print version but love hearing Cardone's Enthusiasm come across in a way that has yet to be matched in any other audiobook in sales (AND I LISTEN TO A LOT!!)
I enjoyed his tell it how it is attitude and how he gives real life examples of thing you can apply to make you hone your skills in a way that goes way above an beyond my expectations. Cardone is the man!!
I enjoyed every piece of this audiobook equally
Yes I have listened to it 3 times now
BUY THIS AUDIOBOOK IF YOU ARE SELLING ANYTHING
"Insidiously plugging scientology on you"
Leaving scientology out.
Leaving scientology out.
The scientology part.
The more I think about it, the more annoyed I get. When he mentions "Dianetics" in one of the last chapters, I don't know what he's talking about, but when he mentions this book is written by L. Ron. Hubbard, that gets my attention.
I normally make a rule to live and let live when it comes to religion. I have my opinions, and I keep them to myself, mostly. Even when it comes to such a ridiculous "religion" as scientology.
This is crossing the line, and then pissing on it. I will be asking for a refund.
"Second best, but only to 10X rule"
This is a truly special listen, sales is a life style not a job. If you're serious about making it as a great sales person, listen, act and more importantly start now!
"Very good all round...break out of the box tips!"
I found this audiobook interesting, funny and very inspiring, I am an out of the box person and have also tried to make contact with Grant - selling this way is about breaking that programming and having a genuine desire to help customers and make that commission. First I need to be sold!
"Superb for your sales career!"
Great Narration. Captivating example that one cannot escape relating to the daily life. It was good to read and be completely sold on the book.
"Grant Inspirational Cardone"
I'm a 26 Years old business owner competing against businesses such as major chains, rich family owned rivals & basically i shouldn't be able to compete but this guy gives me the energy and motivation every time I listen to him to find a way to succeed! His positivity alone is worth your time and money.
"An Absolute Must Listen!"
I dont work in a direct sales related role however this book goes into detail about how selling isnt just limited to a job role. The teachings in this book apply to all of us and trust me when you take on the info in this book you start to see real change in your life, I have.
Ive listened to all his audio books and his latest seminar and one thing I am impressed with is that with Grant there is absolutely no filler; From start to finish this book is outstanding.
People may laugh but this is amongst a few books that have actually changed the way I see the world. This book amongst GC's others have honestly changed my life and saved me from a dark place.
If you are in any doubt about this book then just check out Grant Cardones Free content on YouTube and his website and you can check him out before this book. Trust me.. You will not regret it.
"Quit being an itchba"
Anyone who gives this book anything less then 5 stars clearly hasn't listened. Listen to this book if you want to start to get ahead in life.
"Exceptional, from start to finish."
I literally could not recommend this Audio book enough. Buy it and enjoy it. What energy and enthusiasm. I listened at 1.50x, as I normally do.
Love that audio , it always made me smile👌I love it u love it too, by it ......
