The sales profession is in the midst of a perfect storm. Buyers have more power - more information, more at stake, and more control over the sales process - than any time in history. Technology is bringing disruptive change at an ever-increasing pace, creating fear and uncertainty that leaves buyers clinging to the status quo.

was alright but I found the story was packed with too many cliches. my main gripe
1) doing what you're passionate about is BS. the market doesn't give a shit what you're passionate about - focus on others and solving problems - not on your own selfish passions.
2)you need a certain level of financial stability to be at peace. find me a happy person living in poverty that lives in a westernised country... no amount of mental gymnastics or meditation will make those with bad cash flow happy.

there were some decent points but I found the story and character development lacking.

overly academic, boring and could be summed up in a few chapters. no where near as good as the first one. do yourself a favour and fast forward the first 2 hours. we know what a red and blue ocean are!! you don't need to keep harping on about opening new value frontiers!

Extreme success, by definition, lies beyond the realm of normal action. If you want to achieve extreme success, you can’t operate like everybody else and settle for mediocrity. You need to remove luck and chance from your business equation, and lock in massive success. The 10X Rule shows you how!
