Effective Sales is not a casual read, you will need to read a section, think about it and then re-read. The book offers several case studies and a multitude of incentive plans that have worked or failed and details the reasons for the outcomes. Overall the authors do a good job breaking the process down as to how to design the best plan for your company.
