Quotes & Awards

  • “He will undoubtedly go down in history as the number one salesman of our time!” 

    Mary Kay Ash, founder and president, Mary Kay Cosmetics 

  • “I recommend this book to anyone who needs to learn the sill of persuasion—and don't we all!”

    Robert H. Schuller, founder and pastor, Crystal Cathedral, Garden Grove, California

  • “Will upgrade the performance of salespeople and non-salespeople all over the world!”

    Og Mandino, bestelling author of The Greatest Salesman in the World 

  • “In the past 36 years I have read over 100 self-help books for salespeople. Most of them are written by theoreticians who have never paid their dues in face-to-face selling. Zig's book excites me because every idea presented has been tested in the field by Zig or another master salesperson. A salesperson who doesn't own this book is underprivileged!” 

    D. John Hammond, American Motivational Association

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 2/5/2014

    " Good 'ol Zig...fun to listen to him as a speaker in the audiobook. His sales tips seemed to be more focused on the one-time, small-dollar sales crew (think Cutco and Magazine subscriptions) than a large dollar, relationship based sale (think a software platform or financial plan). Anyway, not many people better at public speaking than Zig and fun to listen to. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 2/4/2014

    " This book spoke to me on so many different levels. As Zig Ziglar says, "everyone sells and everything is selling" which to me is so true. It's a book about selling, but also, about life and how we transfer emotions to others. "
