How I Raised Myself from Failure to Success in Selling
By Frank Bettger
Maybe you aren’t intending on a career in selling. Perhaps your business has little to do with selling. The bottom line is that everyone sells something to someone, no matter what.
If you are a child, you sell getting to stay up late to your parents. As a child you may sell going to a particular movie or event or even watching a television program. We all sell. If you are a preacher or priest or other type of clergy, you sell salvation to your congregation. If you are a teacher, you sell education to your students. If you are a student, you have to sell your intelligence level to your teacher. We all sell something.
This book gives you some simple techniques to use when selling. One of the tips goes into detail about enthusiasm and why it is important. Another area speaks about when to be quiet. Don’t we all need that lesson sometimes?
This book won’t sell anything for you. It gives you some good, basic, common sense methods to use in your everyday life, whether you think you are selling or not.
In my opinion this is the most valuable book on my bookshelf. I originally purchased a copy of this book from a Friends of the Library sale at the Anderson County Library for 10¢. Somewhere along the way I misplaced my original copy of this book and I purchased another one through E-Bay. Now you can purchase copies through Amazon.
Book Review Policy
My policy on book reviews is to give you my honest opinion of the book. From time to time publishers will give me a copy of their book for free for the purpose of me reading the book and writing a review. The publishers understand when they give me the book that I am under no obligation to write a positive review.
If you will look at all my reviews, you will see that there have been occasions when I have written a negative review after having been given a book.
I often provide links to books on Amazon.com where you can purchase books and help support the continued operation of this blog. However, I strongly encourage you to check out your local library. Many libraries now offer electronic borrowing for free.
