    "Much better in book form"

    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%.

    "Rubbish"

    Unless your a ridiculously pathetic salesperson with a desire to hear someone brag, you may want to skip this book. There's about twenty minutes of teaching.

    "Must be better in book form"

    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.

    "not as good as I hoped"

    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.

    Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.

    "Get this book and get selling"

    If you are new to sales, this book is excellent, if you are in the game and need some direction, then this book is gold. Jeffrey doesn't mince words but he does tell you how it is and how it can be. He paces out this book nicely and his style is unique and entertaining. One point he makes is to have fun and that is my kind of advice I like to hear. Who said work can't be fun. He is good and I think this book will make you good at your type of sales. Not a book of 'if you believe you can' or the new sales is all about finding yourself but rather a good slant on the whole business of what sales is about and what you need to work at to make it work for you. Good book, great man.

    Story
    "Excellent Content a Great Investment!"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    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. <br/>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.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    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.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    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.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing, he performed passionately and with confidence.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    This book is similar to books like, Advanced Selling Strategies by Brian Tracy and The Ultimate Sales Machine (Unabridged) by Chet Holmes

    "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!
