    Story
    "Half Way Through"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Maybe. It seems like common sense to me to treat people with that "extra special something", but, I'm giving the book a chance to wow me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The narrator was clear and the sections are lined up in a cohesive way.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not sure.


    Who do you think would benefit most from listening to The Art of Selling to the Affluent?

    20 somethings.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, the author uses the word "affluent" way too much.(Paraphrased) "When dealing with affluent people, you must cater to their needs. The affluent pamper their pets as much as they do their kids, so remembering the things that are special to the affluent can result in repeat business." We get it.

    Story
    "Very insightful"

    I am not a wealthy man currently but I plan on being one, one day. This book helped me to understand how people who are affluent come to make decisions in their lives and some of their shirt comings that need to be observed and taken note of.

    Story
    "Interesting ideology"

    The book presents facts that a person with a BBA should know already. The difficult part of reading books like this is that they make the theories it seem easy to implement, when in reality one knows it takes a lot of discipline. Overall it was a good book.

    "Don't waste your money or time on this book."

    If this is the first book you pick up on the subject and have never read anything else, then you might find it useful.

    If you are in any type of sales, and have been for more than 1 year.. Skip this book!


    You'll thank me later.

    "Solid!"

    Great overview of how to approach clients whom are at a higher level of affluence, and can be used by even a new sales person in regards to understanding sales.
