Now I have to say even though I chose to get this book because I was interested in learning about how to be successful at sales I was expecting the book to be rather boring. I am excited to tell you that this book was not boring at all. The book is fact based fiction, but it reads like a fiction book. I got so caught up in Laura's troubles and learning that I did not even realize that I was learning right next to her. I enjoyed hearing about how she slowly began to open up after she was moved from Alaska. I enjoyed the scene where she went to a Christmas part in a fancy dress with work boots. I felt for her when she was selling sewing machines and had never sewed before in her life. I liked how she was able to avoid telling anyone about her lack of experience without lying about a thing. I understood what she was going through when she blundered and accused a workmate of stealing her sale because she did not read the work policy book about how anyone could take a sale if an agent misses three calls.
Overall I found the book to be an interesting read that taught me about sales without ever making me feel like I was learning. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to increase their knowledge of sales without being bored to tears or stuck in a textbook.
