    So beyond perfect

    I am working for Vector Marketing who sell CUTCO cutlery. This book is beyond perfect for me to own on my nookcolor. I just know that reading this book will actually help me in my second push period. I would have to be a complete crazy person not to buy this book.

    I Also Recommend:

    Jeffrey Gitomer is right, this is the Gateway to Selling in the 21st Century

    Right up front I have to admit...I AM A CUTCO FAN! In our home we have Cutco everything, from their super sharp knives that taught us what cutting edge really means (suffered several wounds myself), to the best pots and pans we've ever used, to the most comfortable (and nicest looking) tableware. We even have all of the rest of the tools for cooking, gardening, fishing,...everything!
    That is why I was so intrigued to read this book...and I can say with certainty, this book is as 'quality' as the rest of Cutco's products.
    Jon Berghoff is listed as the author (and he is a true Cutco sales superstar with great stories to share), however, there were 14 other Cutco reps who contributed their stories and every one of them was entertaining.
    When I saw that Jeffrey Gitomer had written the Foreword to this book, I knew it would have some real substance. But I was pleasantly surprised by the exceptionally high level of sales wisdom that each author contributed. I agree with Gitomer that these concepts are the gateway to selling in the 21st Century.
    I also found it super interesting that this book was created as a project to raise money for charities. That is what I call integrity! I commend all of the authors.
    In summary, for those of you considering buying this book, I felt that it was the perfect combination of a fast and fun read, and an extremely educational sales training aide.
    I bought several copies of this book and plan to give them out to my staff and friends. I'm thinking that this book might also be a fun companion to go along with the knives that we often buy for wedding and house-warming gifts.
    DrProactive Randy Gilbert,
