This Book Should Be A Required Read for Anyone in Sales

I’m new to sales. This book is packed with so much common sense information I don’t know why my company does not have anything like this in place. I feel so empowered and I have my affirmation statement. I can’t wait to get to work today and put my knowledge and skill set to work. Here is at least two of my affirmation statements. I am the top producer in my department, I am going to meet my goal every quarter. I am going to execute my tactics and time block everyday. I’m going for 10 new Quality Discovery on a weekly basis.

Pretty Good - But There are Better

A lot of good info but some of his methods seem manipulative. It's pretty good but, "How to Persuade and Get Paid" is better.

Laughter in sales

I love this book, I really enjoyed the stories about laughter and hearing David's sincere chuckles, throughout the reading. I often lead my presentations with laughter and it's contagious so it sets the tone of the clients encounter with you.

I immediately wanted to replay and listen again.

Glengarry Glenn Ross anyone?

This reminds me of Jack Lemmon’s role in Glengarry Glenn Ross. While some of the concepts remain relevant in today’s world, the presentation and organization are weak. And the narration speed is so agonizingly slow that I listened at 1.5x the recorded speed.

an agonizing listen

you can tell that 90% of this book is just extra fluff. sometimes they'll say the exact same sentence three different ways back to back before moving on to the next sentence he's going to repeat two or three different ways back to back. even that's not the worst part. listening to the reader is complete torture to the brain. he will literally emphasized every single word of the book will a pause between each one. had to move the reading speed of the 1.5 just to make it sound decent.

the points in the book are pretty good but nothing special or anything that we haven't really heard before. There were maybe two that I would consider oh, oh that's nice.

Great book for the car

I saw the other critical review on here, and I'd just like to give a different perspective. I first bought the hard copy of this book a few years back and thought it was good - a few months back I noticed on Audible. When I heard the audio sample, I felt that it was something that I could listen to in the car without losing attention (which is a big problem I have with a lot of the audiobook authors).

The book is short, snappy chapters, with the same tried and tested sales tricks that you get in most other books - i.e. make the customer laugh, be enthusiastic, create urgency etc. Nothing groundbreaking, but good information delivered in a very palatable manner. I listen to each of the chapters like sort of cue cards, reminders essentially about how to behave when you are in a sales setting.

Far too many audiobooks are simply way too long, and I lose concentration. This book is just over two hours, is easy to listen to, and gets to the point very quickly.

The David Brent school of sales

Really old school style of sales, may be some interest if you are a short sales cycle seller
chapter 1 make your customers laugh- this was stated as the most important key to sales success. Throughout the book their are corny jokes he tells to customers reminding us the most important thing is to make your customer laugh. I stuck with the book trying to be open minded, then he got to the 'rocking chair close'. In this close you sit customers on rocking chairs and because they are rocking back and forward, they will be continually nodding (i.e. old school sales only ask questions which get a yes response) then when you ask for the order it will be difficult for them to say no. At this point I thought if David Brent had said this in an episode of The Office, it would have been ironic comedy genius. Unfortunately there was no irony.
So I started skipping chapters but the sections I did listen seemed to get worse not better
