"Much better in book form"
This is MUCH better in book form, because you can trim the fat. Gitomer is pretty arrogant, and while he's direct and to the point, he also rubs me the wrong way. You can't tell as much in the book, so you end up getting a lot more out of the book than the audio program.
This does have some solid information in it - I can't say it's bad MATERIAL, but I honestly got nothing out of the audiobook, because all I wanted to do was cut to the point! This audiobook can really be cut by 80%.
"Must be better in book form"
I was convinced to buy this Audiobook based on the amount of good reviews it has received. I don't understand why it's rated so well. The book is full of lists, which don't translate well to this format, and it's read by the author, who I imagine might be a good salesperson, but he's not a professional reader. The book is OK and it's funny and provocative, but also with segmented ideas and not a coherent flow. If I were to get it, it would be in book form, since it might be full of reference material for later.
Unless your a ridiculously pathetic salesperson with a desire to hear someone brag, you may want to skip this book. There's about twenty minutes of teaching.
"not as good as I hoped"
Honestly I have mixed emotions about the book. There were parts I liked but the author comes off cocky at times which I found annoying. Also, considering the book is over 8 hrs I DID NOT LIKE how the author continually tried to get me to go to his website for more information on various topics. The "Bible" doesn't say "thou shalt not steal; now go to www.god.com for the top 10.5 tips on why stealing is bad"... Obviously the author wants to collect my info so he can sell me stuff down the road. Thats selling I know but it was just a little too much for my tastes.
"Like a stern talking to from daddy"
yes! every one needs a coach to keep you from making excuses for yourself.
JG is the real deal and has done what he teaches.
His story of getting his book deal.
Well worth the listen and will be a re-listen over and over.
"Thought I knew it all. Ha!"
It was nice to have the author do the reading o you can understand his emotion in the book.
"Haven't finished yet"
I will finish the book for sure just because I have paid for it. In the first two chapters I definitely didn't like the mocking voice and mocking style of speaking, it's strange and a little stupid. I never like self appraisal of the authors in general, he talks a lot about his achievements. So I will return with my final review when I finish.
"Great book. very practical."
recommend to anyone in sales.
Bit irritating suggesting extra stuff on web every chapter but all round superb
"Worth it's weight in gold"
This is about my third time reading/ listening to this book and every time I pick up something new
"Gitomer is an idiot. Follow rules, cold call?"
When was he last selling? 1933?
More dated than racism or homophobia. Don't buy it. Not good advice.
This audiobook is jam packed with useful strategies, hot tips and helpful advice.
It's perfect for newbies and pros alike.
"good solid information."

I was disappointed. in this book . didn't learn anything new. found it boring .
