Zig Ziglar debunks all the myths holding you back from closing the sale

Are you a sales person who is passionate about your product or service, can present it professionally but struggles to turn each presentation into a sale? You're just like me! Zig Ziglar gives over 100 secrets in this book. The biggest takeaway I had was understanding that sales is really about helping others get what they want and need. This book helped me understand who to sell my values so I don't feel or appear pushy. The stories Zig tells are approachable so anyone in any field would understand. If you're in sales (and Zig says we are ALL in sales) this book is a must have in your toolkit. Timeless

Fantastic book, Zig Ziglar is truly amazing

Amazing book to help give you the confidence to ask for the sale! Didn't realize how many people including myself simply don't ask for the sale and give up when the client says no. Listen to this book, it will change your perspective on selling!

Still a classic

Some of the stories sound so dated now but the message is still valid if you overlook the 1980s car sales person closes.
The book still has value in the digital world and zig is really engaging to listen too. I love his voice!
The sons overview detracts rather than adds to the tale.
