This review is from: The ABC of Sales: Lessons from a Superstar (Kindle Edition)
I'm very glad that I got this book for free during a promotion. I hate to give bad reviews, and this review isn't horrible because the book isn't horrible. It's simply a book about what a great salesman the author is, and how he started with 17 cents, a desire to succeed, and some well-connected friends. The ABCs that the title refers to is simply the author's own catchphrase: Always Be Closing. In his world, that means to try to sell your product to your friends at football games and dance recitals.
His story is interesting, but the advice boils down to 'be nice to people,' 'work hard' and 'always try to help'. I read the whole thing, but contemplated putting it away several times. What I came away with is "Yay! Look how wonderful I am!" Normally I wouldn't leave a review at all, but I would be angry if I had paid for this book, and feel that others should maybe be given a heads up.
