best book you can buy if you're in Sales

I have purchased over 20 best selling sales books over the past 5 years. This book is by far the most useful book I ever purchased. This is a must have if you're selling over the phone.

Rehashed material

If you're new and this is one of your first books in your library, or you have a credit to blow, sure. Other than that... Skip.

He's rehashing other peoples stuff, talking surface level, and generally boring/drab to me. YMMV this is a return for me.

This material works!

This covers every step of the sales process over the phone. My sales have increased because of simple steps outlined in the book that are common sense, which is not so common in other sales books I've listened to or read!

Limited value

Most content is quite obvious. Value learnings could be summarized in a shorter book. A youtube summary of the book is more than enough.

Another mediocre sales book

I’m sure amazons algorithm recommended this Book to me. It lost me after about 25 minutes. If you’ve read one sales book, you’ve read this one.

Amazing book for salespeople

I think this book is a MUST buy for anyone who wants to get better at B2B sales.. I’ve been in sales a good couple of years and still find it tricky. This book has improved my skills noticeably in the space of a week it took to complete it. Art is a really engaging narrator as well !
