    "Recommended for Sales managers and Sales people"
    Where does The Accidental Sales Manager rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one the best audiobooks for Sales managers that I heard. It is accurate relevant and utilitarian. Applies to the real world and has transitioned well into my management protocols. The results are phenomenal. I am a better manager and my team are better sales people as a result.

    If you could sum up The Accidental Sales Manager in three words, what would they be?

    To the point.

    Any additional comments?

    This is both a great reading of the book and an excellent book. I am a small business owner trying to figure out how best to manage my one sales person and there are at least a dozen things that I'm implementing based on this book.

    "good for a first listen in on the subject."

    I am a new Sales Manager and this book seemed perfect for my first listen in on the subject, Was a good crash course on what to expect. I liked that it had shared experience from others on how to handle different situations. moving on to others now but this was deff worth the time. i will be coming back to this book for a 2nd and a 3rd review as it has many good ideas.

    "Down-to-Earth Strategies"

    Chris Lytle breaks the responsibilities of the sales manager into several sections, then dives into improving each one of those areas with reasonable strategies. He talks with many top-performing sales managers and synthesizes those ideas into some fun and innovative solutions. This was a well-organized book that kept moving.
