I recommend 25 Sales Habits because Schiffman talks about the entire sales process. Any time you can gain insight into how others look at lead conversion, self-motivation, and motivate others, it’s a plus. Looking to succeed?  You should read 25 Sales Habits if highly Successful salespeople.


Sales Bible is a book every sales person should read

The Sales Bible: The Ultimate Sales Resource, New Edition

This is one of the first books I recommended.  The Sales Bible: The Ultimate Sales Resource” by Jeffrey Gitomer.  Dale Carnegie in his Sales Advantage Program said this is one of the top ten books every salesperson should read.  This is the revised addition.  I have the first addition of this book which was published in 2003.  This is one of those books that comes along not too often.

How to Master the Art of Selling

How To Master the art of Selling is a book you’ll keep in your library forever.  I’ve had Tom Hopkins books on my shelves for over 30 years.  Get it read it lean from it and enjoy.   Sometimes you can find it new, but here are some used copies as well.


Secrets of Closing the Sale

Zig Ziglar is one of the true veterans of sales training.  This is one of the books that should always be a part of your library.


SPIN Selling By Neil Rackham

SPIN Selling is a must read for both salesperson and sales managers.   Rackham, answers key questions such as “What makes success in major sales” and “Why do techniques like closing work in small sales but fail in larger ones?”  This is what I would consider a softer sale, but I like it.
