Overview

U.S. Marine Lieutenant Mark Whitby was escorting a top secret caravan through a dangerous area of Afghanistan when his convoy was attacked by insurgents. By springing into action, Whitby manages to save his men and more importantly the top-secret passenger, but not without getting severely wounded himself.

Regaining consciousness in a hospital, Whitby learns that his fighting days are over. Reluctantly, he tries to chart a new future for himself but keeps coming up empty-handed. Then a strange package arrives. He opens it to find an old, dog-eared Gideon's Bible with hundreds of passages underlined and highlighted. Inside is an envelope with a cryptic handwritten note: "When all else fails..." it reads.

Mark and his new young bride are then led on a treasure hunt of sorts by Mark's estranged grandfather, an ex-Marine war hero himself, who is also one of the greatest salesmen who has ever lived. Rather than give his grandson a large inheritance, he will teach him the 12 secrets to salesmanship and open his eyes to the joy of practicing the art of selling in order to equip him for a fulfilling and prosperous life.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“This book is so similar to my own life experiences as a salesperson. . . . It’s no secret that the same skills that make a good salesperson today have been the same throughout time—as referenced in this wonderful book. This book will inspire others who are not sure what career path to take…and show them how they too can be a great salesperson. I found this book to be an entertaining and inspiring read and you will, also!”
