    I had a mixed feeling when reading this book In one way the telling story is good and enticing But in other way I felt difficult to get the book finished because of to many unnecessary details are given it kept me away from my focus zone May be it is only me?


  2. Bruce Bruce says:

    This non fiction book follows one sales manager for Xerox copiers in Cleveland in the 1980's It details the joys and despairs of a career in sales including all of the contests and rewards the subtle deceptions perpetrated on customers the sense of camaraderie that salespeople develop for their sacrifice and accomplishments It feels a little dated in terms of the product technology but the core insights about the sales life are still relevant The book is best when it digs into the psychology of selling and the wild ups and downs that go with it The parts dealing with how it impacts his marriage feel forced

    Originally brought to my attention by a friend at the WSJ who had read a review and wanted my opinion as a business to business salesperson of its accuracy It is closer than close can be Dorsey did his research before selecting the industry and the location of his embed and he nails the life of the road warrior sales class perfectly Later in my career I had the displeasure of working for a close friend of one of the key players in the book and could not stop getting lost in the memory of the insanity that is this story

    Such a powerful book It makes you understand how the real life in sales looks like It emphasizes the point that the daily business of economics is about social relationships than simply about money and exchange The book really captures the essence of being in sales and and what it takes to be in sales management It's a must for anyone interested in marketing
