Easy and entertaining in reading, yet filled with practical advice (with real examples) that leads to successful people providing excellent bottom-line results. Even after years of experience the author's 'Profit Proposal Generator' was an 'eye opener' and helped me to quantify some of my accomplishments, revising my current resume with improved responses.
Though timely and practical in a recession, it is just as valuable in any economy. The value of the book as suggested by the title, is indispensable for anyone looking for success. This book will remain in my library for frequent reference.
