    "worse than average"

    he rants, he's hypocritical, he doesn't make logical arguments, he's hard to follow, he comes across as arrogant and if he tried to sell in this way to me, I'd show him the door

    "Loved it"

    I chose 5 stars because this book is excellent for anyone and everyone who wishes to achieve success in life and sees it as the only option. I have that mindset and Grant had that mindset when he was 20. The difference being he has decades of experience and proof to back it up. He integrates useful concepts with interesting stories and the way he translates the information is fantastic. Grant is engaging and more interesting than professional book narrators because he has emotional experience intertwined and that comes across in the book and the overall vibe. I will be certainly listening to this book again and Grant you have a new follower. I'll see you in a few years mate, but for now I'm going to devour your 10x rule book. Highly recommended to ambitious people interested in success strategies.

    "Grant Cardone fan for the rest of my life!!"
    If you could sum up Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life in three words, what would they be?

    Motivational, Eye-Opening, Hilarious.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Grant calls you out! I absolutely love it, he puts things in a relative way, the book kept me interested because he is so personable and says whats on his mind so matter how blunt it may seem.


    What does Grant Cardone bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He positive attitude, I feel like I am having a conversation with my father or grandfather.

    "A must read for all who sale"

    Grant Cardone reads his own book but never really stays on script giving many extra insight to his thinking in this audiobook. I would say if your in sales you want to be a closer. If you can't close you aren't selling anything. This book has everything you need to be a closer except the heart. You have to provide that yourself along with commitment, dedication, and persistence. This is a must read for anyone who ever wants to accomplish anything in life.
    This book was purchased for my own education.

    I started with 10X Rule and just finished Sell or Be Sold. Great book for sales and I love the aggressive unapologetic approach. Grant's philosophy starts to sink in quickly and really makes you think.

    "Among the Greatest Books on Sales! A Must Read!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life to be better than the print version?

    Most definitely, the audio book has the added advantage of a Grant Cardone performance, and what a performance it is. If he ever gets tired of sales (highly unlikely...) he could always read books for Audible.com and would probably be better than most narrators ;-))


    What other book might you compare Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life to and why?

    Pitch Anything by Oren Klaff


    Any additional comments?

    I can only recommend this book to anyone in sales. Grant Cardone will change your thought process. I listen to the book while working out at the gym and I'm replaying various chapters in my car. Once you've listened to it, rinse and repeat.

    "The best sales training you will ever get!"
    Would you listen to Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life again? Why?

    I listen everyday in my car, as well as when I am relaxing at home. I listen this audio before I go on a sale... it just keeps your training fresh.... and pumps you up!


    What other book might you compare Sell or Be Sold: How to Get Your Way in Business and in Life to and why?

    Well, Grant Cardone also authors and narrates two other audios which are equally incredible, in my opinion.... The 10X Rule and If You're not First, You're Last!.... besides Think and Grow Rich, I think these are the only audios you need for success.


    What about Grant Cardone’s performance did you like?

    He tells it like it is!.... No B.S.... and he knows his stuff... Great motivator and.Great Salesman!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I periodically listen to it, over and over.... I drill it in my head


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to different speakers for 25 years, and Grant Cardone is on the top of my List. He is very unique in every which way. I would not listen if he wasn't the narrator... He's that good! ... He also shows by example, which is inspiring. Check him out on youtube

    "Phenomenal Book for Everyone"

    Grant Cardone is on fire as he reveals his personal sales techniques. This is a must read for everyone, not just those who are in sales for a living. All of us sell every day. We sell ourselves to others. We sell our ideas to others. We sell our presentations to others.

    I have had a temper problem my entire life, but I now understand that tempers stop sales. Anything we do that negatively influences others means that we just lost the sale. What a change this book is making on my life! What an impact it is having on my relationships with others!!! What a change this book is making within me!!! This is a must read for everyone.

    Please, please, please disregard the negative reviews, Either those people have their lives all put together or they are fooling themselves.

    Does Grant come across kind of arrogantly? Yep, but don't miss what he is saying.
