Seldom is a book as aptly named as Selling 101. This is a true primer on the ABC's of selling. Author and sales expert Zig Ziglar walks you through the sales process, teaching you how to find prospects, overcome "call reluctance," pose the right questions and ask for the order. He touches on all of the fundamentals, using examples from his experiences to illustrate his main points. His brief, concise prose is easy to understand and even easier to incorporate into your sales practices. The seasoned sales professional will not find anything new in this basic textbook, but we recommend it to anyone who is new to selling, particularly if you lack a mentor to give you this kind of guidance. This handy manual will provide know-how that is usually gained only by experience in the field.

I found this book to be a great asset to me as a professional salesperson. In an era when selling at any cost is popular, it's wonderful to read a book that stresses the need to be ethical, and above board in the field of selling. I also work for a company that requires the salespeople to show integrity in all that they do to help people. This book was just what I needed.

Zig Ziglar has done it again. As an author myself of sales books, I realize sales is about so much more than just having the 'gift of gab,' and fast talking. It's about asking the right questions and listening to the right answers. It's about not just being a consultant to others, but being a consultant to yourself. It's recognizing you are in the most honorable profession there is. Zig's theories exemplify this.

This book is basically a collection of "daily affirmations." Its a feel-good book. It has very little in the way of "actionable" advice. At only 100-pages, I expected a collection of greatest hits. This is the first, only, and last Zig Zigler book I will ever buy. For people with a serious interest in tangible advice on how to increase sales effectiveness, I would recommend Michael Bosworth's "Solution Selling," or Stephen Heiman and Diane Sanchez's "The New Strategic Selling" or "New Conceptual Selling." If you need to feel good about yourself, I'd suggest a psychologist instead (or simply buy a dog). Overall grade: D-/F.

This is a great little book to use as a handy check up book from Mr.Ziglar. I am not a sales person, but am in the service business and this book was just perfect for me. For $10.00 anyone can get this book and learn a few things, even if just for fun.

Zig Ziglar is the master of sales. I have been reading his books since I started my career in auto sales and I credit much of my success to his knowledge and wisdom. So naturally, when I saw this book on Amazon and I realized that I had never read it, I ordered it. To my dismay, this book is not at all what I expected. Simply looking at it brought me to an uncontrollable episode of laughter, born of bewilderment and confusion.

It is a miniature pocket book which I would value at no more than $4. The concepts are very basic and in some cases, outdated. If you are a Sales Professional, don't waste your time or money on this book. There are no "refresher" ideas or any useful information for you at all. Pocket books are meant to be readily available so that you can quickly reference them for information. You will never ever have a need to take this book out of your pocket. In fact, it will probably serve you better as a paperweight. This booklet is perfect for beginners, and by beginners, I mean people who just started working in sales yesterday.

I still love amazon and I still respect Zig Ziglar. I'll just need to be more careful with what I order online.

A great book to remind you to stay observant of people's actions. This book will teach you how to persuade your customer more often to go in your direction. It also is about staying ethical and effective. Love this book.
