Summary

Get the results you want and come out as the Top Dog in every conversation.

Fancy being the Top Dog in all your dealings? Fed up with feeling like the underdog? So many of us regularly lose in conversations before we've even opened our mouths.

Often without realising it, we don't see ourselves as a peer of the other person. And we transmit this in what we do and say. (I'll fit round you. I know you're really busy....)

The other person picks up on this. And, without doing a thing, they're suddenly in charge!

Top Dog will teach you how to lead in all your interactions, so you can get more of what you want more often.

Together Andy Bounds and Richard Ruttle are experts at helping people achieve more from their conversations with others. Their techniques work in every type of interaction - conversations, socialising, dating, interviews, sales, marketing, and networking. Basically anytime you want to impress and persuade others.

Don't waste your life on this

Tacky, obvious, crude ideas on selling. That's it. Nothing subtle here. If you have read ANY other book in a business genre, you don't need this.

Great Audio Book

A Great book to listen to and reflect on.

More than that I like the way they talk about it's practical applicability and offers templates for use.

The narrator was awesome and clear and more so encouraged one to think of practical application of concepts.

Do you have it in you to be a Top Dog?

A book that will teach you how to stop wasting your time selling to people. no one likes to be sold to. Instead this book helps you to engage with your clients as an equal, to learn how to handle objections and to portray yourself as offering the ideal solution, focusing on their afters.

a dog loving sales persons dream audible!

A decent easy listen, some good tips picked up. Ground breaking? No. Worth a listen? Absolutely. some small changes to push us out of our "habit zones" that have potential to make a difference to performance. This will make the boat go faster!

Good reminder about what we should do!

struggled to finish

I don't feel like this was focused on influencing "everyone you meet". Hard keeping attention.
