In a world inundated with sales books on getting to yes, this audiobook recommends just the opposite, focusing on how increasing your failure rate can greatly accelerate your movement toward ultimate success. Go for No! chronicles four days in the life of fictional character Eric Bratton, a call-reluctant copier salesman who wakes up one morning to find himself in a strange house with no idea of how he got there.

  • Gerald Ratner: The Rise and Fall...and Rise Again

In 1991, Gerald Ratner was booked to make what should have been an everyday speech at the Institute of Directors. Should have been. When the word "crap" came out of his mouth in connection with products sold by his company, it all turned out slightly different. The Rise and Fall...and Rise Again tells the full story, in Ratner's own words, of what led him to that point, the horror of the immediate aftermath, the fallout, and the comeback. This is the first time Ratner has given his side of the story. And what a story it is.

Great story, feeling really privileged to have met Gerald (and taken a selfie with him)
It’s also great that he read the book too, and is the first audible that I couldn’t “put down”, the story was so captivating .

Truly remarkable guy.
