This is MUCH better in book form, because you can trim the fat. Gitomer is pretty arrogant, and while he's direct and to the point, he also rubs me the wrong way. You can't tell as much in the book, so you end up getting a lot more out of the book than the audio program.
This does have some solid information in it - I can't say it's bad MATERIAL, but I honestly got nothing out of the audiobook, because all I wanted to do was cut to the point! This audiobook can really be cut by 80%.
yes! every one needs a coach to keep you from making excuses for yourself.
JG is the real deal and has done what he teaches.
His story of getting his book deal.
Well worth the listen and will be a re-listen over and over.
I was convinced to buy this Audiobook based on the amount of good reviews it has received. I don't understand why it's rated so well. The book is full of lists, which don't translate well to this format, and it's read by the author, who I imagine might be a good salesperson, but he's not a professional reader. The book is OK and it's funny and provocative, but also with segmented ideas and not a coherent flow. If I were to get it, it would be in book form, since it might be full of reference material for later.
Honestly I have mixed emotions about the book. There were parts I liked but the author comes off cocky at times which I found annoying. Also, considering the book is over 8 hrs I DID NOT LIKE how the author continually tried to get me to go to his website for more information on various topics. The "Bible" doesn't say "thou shalt not steal; now go to www.god.com for the top 10.5 tips on why stealing is bad"... Obviously the author wants to collect my info so he can sell me stuff down the road. Thats selling I know but it was just a little too much for my tastes.
I would to The Sales Bible again, in fact I have. There is so much information packed into each chapter I find I can discover a new point to focus on that I maybe did not pay attention to on a prior listening.
It incorporates the basics in everyday language and it also tells the sales professional how to step up his/her game. Jeffry Gitomer doesn't beat around the busy, his points are clear and make sense. I suspect I will listen to this book many more times in the months and years to come.
Selling skills are an essential part of successful business men and women. This book combines themes and ideas I have read in other books in a more direct way. His points are succinct.
Again I appreciate his lists of points on the various topics. Direct and to the point I always find the most memorable. He explains what his points mean but there is no fluff in between.
Nothing, he performed passionately and with confidence.
This book is similar to books like, Advanced Selling Strategies by Brian Tracy and The Ultimate Sales Machine (Unabridged) by Chet Holmes
It was nice to have the author do the reading o you can understand his emotion in the book.
Jersey blunt with southern hospitality. How can you go wrong. Some content is repeated from his other works, but still a wonderful book and should be in any improvement seeking sales person's library. One personal takeaway is that I started asking all my customers what trade conferences they attend after listening.
I also appreciate his dedication towards self improvement through person awareness. He truly wants you to be the best sales person and that is made clear through the tone of his narration.
This audiobook is jam packed with useful strategies, hot tips and helpful advice.
It's perfect for newbies and pros alike.
"Soooooo freaking useful!!!"
I hated sales. I was afraid of it and the rejection. This guy has enlighten so much that I'm actually excited to make a sales call for once in my life!!!! I'm yet to test it out, hopefully it get good results.
"Brilliant! Worth a repeat listen"
Well written and narrated, loads of great ideas. He's straight up and gets to the point without waffling & I think I'll have to re-listen a couple more times to make sure I've got everything out of it - next time with a pen so I can write the key bits down!
"good solid information."
