In a world inundated with sales books on getting to yes, this audiobook recommends just the opposite, focusing on how increasing your failure rate can greatly accelerate your movement toward ultimate success. Go for No! chronicles four days in the life of fictional character Eric Bratton, a call-reluctant copier salesman who wakes up one morning to find himself in a strange house with no idea of how he got there.

The entire book is fluff. No valuable insights. No cool stories. No actionable process.

Just the author rambling about his personal life and eventually tying it to the phrase “The customer isn’t done until they’ve said no.”

Narrator seemed a bit tired and raspy, but the book was an excellent reminder on some key aspects of building wealth. Thoroughly enjoyed and wouldn recommend.

Follow similar format as Richest Man in Babylon and The Greatest Salesman in The World. So if you liked those, you'll like this book.

This book was very long and slow at times, but completely worth it for anyone in complex sales.

What would have made Don't Sweat the Small Stuff, and It's All Small Stuff better?

The book was insanely boring and full of obvious advice. The author reads in a monotone voice while lecturing you on brilliant pieces of advice like "Remember not to interrupt people" or "Remember that your problems are not as bad as being dead or maimed"...

What could Richard Carlson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

He could have written a more insightful book, one that hopefully had some interesting and engaging stories. I don't want to hear "you always feel good when you give to others" and bunch of other generalities about being a nicer person.

Would you be willing to try another one of Richard Carlson’s performances?

Monotone and boring.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

All of the above. I honestly lasted about 15 minutes through the audio book before falling asleep.

Any additional comments?

I have never written a review before on a book. Special circumstance required special action.
