5.0 out of 5 stars A must read!, March 21, 2002
This review is from: Endless Referrals: Network Your Everyday Contacts Into Sales, New & Updated Edition (Paperback)
You must buy this book! As a self-confessed 'how to..' book junkie, what puts this book head and shoulders above the vast majority of similar books is this: in the past when reading a 'how to' business book, I would find myself thinking "I should try that" and then never actually getting around to it. With Bob Burg's book however, I found myself thinking "I can't wait to try that" and (this is the best bit) I actually have successfully implemented a number of Mr. Burg's ideas. For example I set up a business network group according to the principles set out in 'Endless Referrals' and although in early days, it is working exceptionally well for me and the other participants.
Another really great thing about this book is that it has improved my selling skills to the point where I don't actually sell (in the traditional way) anymore. All I do is what Bob Burg suggests; I help people to achieve what they are aiming at and this results in them giving me business. This has made me feel that I am not actually in sales anymore, rather I'm doing what I've always been good at (relating to people) and this leads to sales. You would be surprised how liberating it is to approach a prospect not thinking about how you are going to sell them but thinking about how you can help them. It really takes the pressure off. I was never very competitive because I always felt that for me to win, someone else has to lose and I was never comfortable with that. Now Mr. Burg has helped me to realise that the best way to win is by helping others to win.
