Sales in a Beermat. Mike Southon & Chris West

If you are an out and out salesman not the book for you; but if you're part of a smaller organisation and sales is key but a part time role and not your sole responsibility, this will expose you to the principle concepts to guide and inspire. The lessons are straightforward- you can read it in an evening or dip into it for reminders. One of the worthy ‘Beermat’ series.
