A book you can pick up and start using right now
on September 17, 2009
I've read hundreds of business and sales books over the years and have developed several pet peeves. I can't stand books that are supposed to be practical but are loaded with theory and too many pages of "personal stories". If I kept just the useful parts of those books, they would only be a few pages long. In contrast, "Smart Selling" starts right off with useful tips, templates, tools and key phrases to help me deal with difficult situations. Chapter 3 on dealing with "No-Po's" is the most eye-opening sales concept I have heard about in a long time. It's really made me rethink who I'm talking to. My copy of this book is already marked up with sticky notes and tabs. It didn't take me long to read it (and I didn't get bored half-way though like I usually do with sales books), but I think I'll be referring to it over and over again.
