Read an Excerpt

From “The Art of War” Page: Do not take a position facing high ground. Do not oppose those with their backs to the wall. Do not follow those who attempt to flee. Do not attack the enemy’s strongest men. Do not swallow the enemy’s bait. Do not block and army that is headed home. Leave an escape route for a surrounded army. Do not press a desperate foe. This is the art of war.

From “The Art of Sales” Page Do not take a position against strong feelings. Do not pursue an argument based on a lack of alternatives. Do not accept those who only pretend to agree. Do not attack the strongest competition against you. Do not believe everything the customer tells you. Do not argue with a customer who agrees with you. Give the customer a better alternative. Do not press the customer too hard for a decision. These are the rules for selling.
