There are an endless number of sales books that purport to let the reader in on the secrets of great selling. And many of them even have useful ideas and tips. But it doesn't matter how many tricks a salesperson has at hand if he or she doesn't have the one most important weapon in any salesperson's arsenal: the motivation to get out there and sell!Rhetorical tricks and clever devices, even if they're occasionally effective, don't make great salespeople; hard-working, self-motivated, optimistic people do. The cold, hard truth is that there really isn't any great big secret to sales success. There's only the simple truth: motivated, positive, goal-oriented people are usually the ones who sell the most.
Fortunately, even if you don't think you have these vital qualities, you can develop them in yourself - with the right help. You can learn to motivate yourself to action. You can learn to project a friendly, positive attitude. The Best Damn Sales Book Ever will show you how. Plus, it shows you how to design a set of goals and an action plan that help you focus your efforts and stay on a successful track.You'll find wise and practical advice on:
This audiobook doesn't cover the art of prospecting, closing, gathering referrals, or presentation. There are a thousand books that rehash those basics. While those skills are important, they're practically useless without the right attitude and motivation. The Best Damn Sales Book Ever is a one-of-a-kind guide to what it truly takes to achieve and maintain real sales success.

There are no listener reviews for this title yet.
All top of the head stories that provide no methodology or formulation for success.
The information and content was so bad I never noticed any defects in narration.
All the one off stories of how some one was successful and instead focus on the techniques that can lead to success.
"Wow, just wow. I love this book."
Awesome Narration. Awesome energy. Awesome logic. Awesome words of wisdom. Awesome book.
You really have to be in sales to appreciate this book. The rules that Warren Greshes state are unwavering principles that you can apply into all areas of life.
This audiobook is very motivational, I highly recommend listening to it on a nice long drive.
"Good, but not the best"
Yes, it was free. If I had purchased it, I would have been okay, but not overwhelmed with my purchase. Warren is a likeable guy, and made some good points, but I have heard better.
Warren is a speaker by trade. I think if I saw him in person, I would probably enjoy hearing him speak, but this was an average book on sales.
It brought to my attention some things that I could refine, but it wasn't overwhelmingly "life changing".
"This book is not just for sales people"
I not only recieved great advice which will help propel my career, but I was in stitches lauging. The only thing wrong with this book is the title. I would call it The Best Damn Life coach book ever.
There wasn't any fictional characters. My favourite story was the Ninja Turtles. I won't spoil it for anybody else. I just had a pain from laughing so much.
This is the first but not the last book
I did listen in one sitting.
I have listened and re listered to this performance several times already. It is not your usual self help book which is why I bought it after hearing the sample.
"Good tips AND energizing!!!"
I would never recommend the print versio because the author's voice and spirit is so empowering and energizing to me that the words alone would not be more than half the value.
Warren tells many anecdotes and stories, both from his own life and others', and one story about a desperate man worked his way up from having nothing at all, to being financially successful, was particularly inspiring.
I won't give away anything because I want you to experience it yourself, but the story illustrates, PROVES, that what looks like crushing defeat, IS really an opportunity in disguise. I never understood this until now.
I read/listen to a lot of sales books and this and Zig Ziglar's material have what salespeople need: an incessant, joyful, energizing, and empowering picker upper in your ear. We need this to deal with the profession we have chosen.
You cannot get this from print, well you can, but nothing beats Warren's and Zig's voices!
It has made me laugh out loud several times, and I am not finished yet!
Just get it and buy it for everyone you know. It is amazing!
"Racy and Entertaining"
I really enjoyed the pace of this book. It was to the point, entertaining and full of good tips. Highly recommended
"A GREAT Listen!"
This a great listen for those kicking off sales careers and a tune-up, refresher for sales professionals that need a kick in the pants jump start!
"good info, but it is lead based"
if you don't have to generate your own leads, you may no t find it quite as useful. there is plenty if good info though
"Easy to listen to and follow"
This audiobook is very easy to listen to and is enjoyable. The advice is very good. The only reason I didn't give it five stars was I thought there wasn't enough examples of being a great salesperson.
"Great book, even better narrator!"
Has great advise for anyone regardless if you're in sales or just looking for inspiration.
