I liked it but it didn't quite live up to the title, glad I read it but it's a good book for someone that reads/listens to 1-2 books a year not 60 like me.

KISS did not become one of the most successful rock bands in history by accident. Long before they first took the stage, Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley had a clear-cut operating plan for their business. Over the past forty years, KISS has sold over 100 million CDs and DVDs worldwide and manages over 3,000 licensed merchandise items. In addition to KISS, Simmons’ lucrative ventures include two hit reality shows, a professional sports team, a restaurant chain, and a record company.

I love Grant Cardone, I have all of his books my opinion differs to his, but I need some of what he has, the most important thing about grant, is he has enormous passion and when ever I feel a little low or demotivated I put one of his audiobooks on.

And yes by accident i applauded the end of his speech.

Where does The Closer's Survival Guide - Third Edition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It ranks highly, as I run my own business sales training is something that I have overlooked & have failed to close because I would take the rejection personally as I am the product.

What did you like best about this story?

I love grants energy

Have you listened to any of Grant Cardone’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Joint first with his other two books.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It makes me feel highly motivated

Any additional comments?

I love grant and his books, open your mind to this but I'd ignore the scientology reference, TR training. I knew that there were occasional references of scientology in this book and I don't fully agree with some of grants opinions, but the downside is tiny to the pro side which is enormous. I would definitely buy this book it will make you feel highly motivated and educated btw im from london not dallas
