Best book on selling I've read so far

Very in depth explanations of timeless principles and techniques. The narrator did a good job of bringing the book to life .

This book is a classic I'm surprised that people don't talk about it more. Some of the ideas are applicable to more than just sales; like improving your memory, organising informaion etc.

This books covers everything from giving a structure of the sale to breaking down the individual steps. It also discusses the psychology at work during key moments of the sales.

I will be recommending this book to my friends
