What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"He will undoubtedly go down in history as the humber one salesman of our time!'
—Mary Kay Ash, Founder and President, Mary Kay Cosmetics

"I recommend this book to anyone who needs to learn the sill of persuasion—and don't we all!'
—Robert H. Schuller, Founder and Pastor, Crystal Cathedral, Garden Grove, California

"Will upgrade the performance of salespeople and non-salespeople all over the world!'
—Og Mandino, bestelling author of The Greatest Salesman in the World

"In the past 36 years I have read over 100 self-help books for salespeople. Most of them are written by theoreticians who have never paid their dues in face-to-face selling. Zig's book excites me because every idea presented has been tested in the field by Zig or another master salesperson. A salesperson who doesn't own this book is underprivileged!"
—D. John Hammond, American Motivational Association
