According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in nine Americans works in sales. Every day more than 15 million people earn their keep by persuading someone else to make a purchase. But dig deeper and a startling truth emerges: Yes, one in nine Americans works in sales. But so do the other eight. Whether we’re employees pitching colleagues on a new idea, entrepreneurs enticing funders to invest, or parents and teachers cajoling children to study, we spend our days trying to move others.

Overall, this book provided only a handful of fresh insights that aren't expounded in much greater detail in other popular sales books like those of Jeff Gitomer. The first part added little value and spent a great deal of time getting to a punchline that could have been reached in a paragraph or two. Part 2 was slightly more engaging, but only Part 3 actually achieved the practicality level needed for salesmen who require pointed, actionable, and insightful advice. If you don't mind hearing several hours of studies and background prior to these insights then listen to the whole thing. Otherwise, skip to part 3 and listen to it 3 times instead so you can actually own the important concepts.

There have been very few books in my life that have addressed as many universal truths as this. Anyone who cares to improve themselves and their relationships with others who has not yet read this book is doing themself an injustice.
