Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Business had changed. For years, as VP of Sales and Marketing at Wolfson Furniture, Ryan Miller easily created steady growth and success. Then the economy tanked. Sales dwindled. Marketing efforts flopped. Wolfson Furniture was suddenly on the ropes. Ryan's future, once golden, seemed dim. But life is mysterious. Just when all seems lost, serendipity lends a hand.

For Ryan, fate takes the persona of Lenny, an old high school friend. Having found happiness in Hasidic Judaism, Lenny now runs a packaging company in Brooklyn. "Business is booming, even in the down economy!" he tells Ryan excitedly. So what's Lenny's secret?

Roar! gives you a seat at the table as these two friends reconnect, and Ryan discovers how to revitalize his sales and marketing approach. Lenny's sales and marketing process is 3,500 years old and is beautifully simple, yet goes ignored by most companies.

As the story unfolds in real-life kosher restaurants all over New York City, you'll discover the step-by-step R-O-A-R system you can use to boost your results. You'll get practical tools and tips, including a template to help you reframe your Value Proposition, detailed discussions of the four types of buyers and strategies for selling to each, plus interview questions you can customize.

Warmhearted and entertaining, Roar! is an inspiring story for anyone looking to add a secret ingredient to their sales mix. Its many tools and resources will enable you to deliver a compelling message and strengthen your business in any economy. Take it from Lenny, it's a sales jungle out there, but it's much less scary when you know how to ROAR!

Roar makes a thoroughly enjoyable read in style reminiscent of the wonderful The One Minute Manager

I really could not put it down and read it cover to cover in a single morning.

The insights are powerful and relevant and easily digested. The identification and classification of the different buyer types is a must read for anyone who needs to sell and let's face it everyone needs to sell.

The number of times I have encountered the "wise" buyer in my work had me completely resonating with the message and the simple identification of these different buying personalities has already helped me close a new 5 figure deal because it helped me figure our how I was selling in a way that best suited only my own buying style.

I have put Roar on my highly recommended list because it's methods and message proved to be very powerful.

So by now your asking why only three stars? Well the reason is twofold one reason for each star.

Firstly the book and the promotion of it are frankly a bit cheesy so Camus it isn't and I would have had to have docked it a star for that.

Secondly if you have read this far and need more success in you life / work / business then buy Roar because you dear reader are very probably a "wise" buyer, as I am, who likes to read the negative reviews first and you are described in the book and it will likely make a difference to you in your selling style as it did for me despite the hype and hype is always going to cost a book a star.

Kevin may never forgive me for three stars and I hope that you and he will see that a good recommendation on a genuine three star review means I believe in this book for the value it contains and having not been swept up in the hype around it recommend it on what it has provided for me which is better sales.

This is a fresh approach by an enthusiastic and thoughtful author. The story is interesting, entertaining and accessible to those who've read many books on marketing, as well as those who can't seem to crack open any of the 10 or so books on marketing stacked up on their bedside table. It's a great message "hidden" in a wonderfully written fable. Heart, soul, experience, and success are obvious in this book. How could you not want to read it?

I liked that they made this a story more than just a "how to market" type book. However, the story section ended abruptly and left me with a couple of unanswered questions (i.e. why wouldn't Lenny let Ryan ever pick up the bill for lunch? - if you know..please enlighten me :)

But, it's a fast-read and I'm just delving into the final section of the book which is more like a "Here's how it works" section.

I have learned the meaning of ROAR and am already putting it into play for my own business. I feel confident in my approach now and it took me no time to put a Value Proposition together...something that I would have bellyached about before reading this book.

Corny name for my review, I know, but deal with it. This book is awesome for anyone trying to learn, revamp, or retool their sales and marketing strategy. The book is told like a story, and while this isn't Harry Potter, it's a concise and to the point tale told in a refreshingly insightful and empathetic manner. Plus, after the story, there is a section that goes through the concepts discussed in the book, delivering straightforward definitions and further information. Honestly, I learned so much from this book and it's something you can pick up and read in less than a day.

I just read ROAR..great book. I love the way the story was laid out and was fun to follow. The message was powerful and very helpful for me and my team. We have been struggling to figure out what makes us unique and ROAR did a great job bringing things into focus. A must read for any Sales and Marketing Exec and small business owner. Can't wait for the next book.

Kevin Daum and Daniel A. Turner have written a fascinating little book that presents a successful philosophy of marketing and sales in a memorable fable. Subtitled "Get Heard in the Sales and Marketing Jungle," this slim volume of 210 pages records a series of (imaginary) dinner meetings between Lenny, who grew up in Livingston, NJ, went to public schools, eventually became a Hassid and follower of Chabad, and Ryan his non-practicing Christian friend and classmate from the "old days." Lenny went on to became a highly successful businessman while his friend Ryan had been doing well, but has been struggling lately as his business was buffeted by the recession. Ryan and Lenny meet up again by chance, after a lapse of some 26 years, and once Ryan gets over the shock of Lenny's new look - a black hat, flowing beard - the works - their friendship is renewed.
Similar to the "four sons" discussed in the Haggadah at the Seder Table, Lenny teaches Ryan about four customers, the Wise Buyer, the Cynical Buyer, the Simple Buyer and the Buyer Unwilling to Ask.
The book includes a tour of some of my favorite Kosher restaurants in New York (only The Prime Grill was missing), and in a way it reminded me of Og Mandino's best-selling 1968 classic guide to a philosophy of salesmanship, The Greatest Salesman in the World.
The essence of the book is summarized in the acronym that forms its title: R.O.A.R. -
* Recognize the type,
* Observe from their perspective,
* Acknowledge concerns, and
* Resolve Needs.
While the essence can be stated standing on one foot - the rest you need to study and learn.
