Publisher's Summary

A business classic endorsed by Dale Carnegie, How I Raised Myself from Failure to Success in Selling is for anyone whose job it is to sell. Whether you are selling houses or mutual funds, advertisements or ideas - or anything else - this book is for you.

When Frank Bettger was 29, he was a failed insurance salesman. By the time he was 40, he owned a country estate and could have retired. What are the selling secrets that turned Bettger's life around from defeat to unparalleled success and fame as one of the highest-paid salesmen in America?

The answer is inside How I Raised Myself from Failure to Success in Selling. Bettger reveals his personal experiences and explains the foolproof principles that he developed and perfected. He shares instructive anecdotes and step-by-step guidelines on how to develop the style, spirit, and presence of a winning salesperson. No matter what you sell, you will be more efficient and profitable - and more valuable to your company - when you apply Bettger's keen insights on:

  • The power of enthusiasm
  • How to conquer fear
  • The key word for turning a skeptical client into an enthusiastic buyer
  • The quickest way to win confidence

    "Not just for sales!"

    I am not a sales person, and I found this book to be very enjoyable and helpful. The stories and tips can help in so many different situations and roles. From convincing someone to see your side of an argument to just good ol' people skills. Highly recommended.

    "A True Classic"

    This book is the best book I've ever read (heard) on the topic of selling and self improvement. Frank Bettger makes selling easy to understand and gives practical assignments that are sure to improve not only your power of persuasion, but also your life. I highly recommend this book for everyone, as selling (helping people overcome their fear of change and take action on solutions to improve their lives) is a valuable tool for all of us to master.

    "The only sales book you'll need"

    This is all you need my fellow sales men. With this book you will do wonders.

    I loved it since the first time I read it when I was 18, and now 10 years later. This is a cornerstone to my career

    "Greatest book on selling!"

    Of all the books I've read on selling this is the greatest wealth of selling knowledge ever written. I can't believe it was written so long ago. So glad I bought it. Thank you Frank!
