    "Phenomenal Book for Everyone"

    Grant Cardone is on fire as he reveals his personal sales techniques. This is a must read for everyone, not just those who are in sales for a living. All of us sell every day. We sell ourselves to others. We sell our ideas to others. We sell our presentations to others.

    I have had a temper problem my entire life, but I now understand that tempers stop sales. Anything we do that negatively influences others means that we just lost the sale. What a change this book is making on my life! What an impact it is having on my relationships with others!!! What a change this book is making within me!!! This is a must read for everyone.

    Please, please, please disregard the negative reviews, Either those people have their lives all put together or they are fooling themselves.

    Does Grant come across kind of arrogantly? Yep, but don't miss what he is saying.

    "A must read for all who sale"

    Grant Cardone reads his own book but never really stays on script giving many extra insight to his thinking in this audiobook. I would say if your in sales you want to be a closer. If you can't close you aren't selling anything. This book has everything you need to be a closer except the heart. You have to provide that yourself along with commitment, dedication, and persistence. This is a must read for anyone who ever wants to accomplish anything in life.
    This book was purchased for my own education.

    "Among the Greatest Books on Sales! A Must Read!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life to be better than the print version?

    Most definitely, the audio book has the added advantage of a Grant Cardone performance, and what a performance it is. If he ever gets tired of sales (highly unlikely...) he could always read books for Audible.com and would probably be better than most narrators ;-))


    What other book might you compare Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life to and why?

    Pitch Anything by Oren Klaff


    Any additional comments?

    I can only recommend this book to anyone in sales. Grant Cardone will change your thought process. I listen to the book while working out at the gym and I'm replaying various chapters in my car. Once you've listened to it, rinse and repeat.

    "If You define success as how much money you get..."

    It's a great book for you. I believe that a lot of the things he shares and discusses, if put into practice will lead to financial success. A lot of valuable things in here, just can't get behind the concept that money is everything. And he pounds that the entire book. Also, not much insight into complex, high value, b2b sales.

    "Great Sales Book"

    I started with 10X Rule and just finished Sell or Be Sold. Great book for sales and I love the aggressive unapologetic approach. Grant's philosophy starts to sink in quickly and really makes you think.

    "helpful, inspring and fun"

    Although I'm not in sales professionally, I picked this up because I am in the job market and was hoping to find information on closing prospective employers on *me* as a new hire. :-) I found this book helpful, inspiring and fun. I am on my way to a great new job right now. Highly recommended!

    I found this audiobook interesting, funny and very inspiring, I am an out of the box person and have also tried to make contact with Grant - selling this way is about breaking that programming and having a genuine desire to help customers and make that commission. First I need to be sold!
