Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
I have fallen into sales. I didn't want to do it and now I am one. Well I am reading, practicing and listening to everything on sales to help change my mind and achieve my goals. I have not at this stage done that. I thought this book would help and it did, but there are better books for that. This book gives you the idea to get organised, become professional and stop letting things happen by chance. More about focusing and doing your business with direction and purpose.
Yes, I will continue to review this book and in fact have ordered the paper copy to complement the audio experience.
Some of the questions and challenges of this book are very obvious but so obvious that personally I hadn't thought of them. As an accidental salesperson for a large corporation I have found that some of the ideas are impractical however, the core ideas and approach is one I follow.
