Andy's storyline is one of the best ones for non-fiction I've listened to or read. He does a great job by weaving in the lives and adversities of great people from Military Generals to comedians like Joan Rivers and Bob Hope to elaborate on the 7 Decisions he says all the greats have in common. He kept me engaged the whole time and I finished the book in 2 days.

The tactics that jump-start your business in tough times will power it forward in good times. Put your business into another gear - shift!

"Gary, Dave, and Jay always breakdown the process and give you a blue print to what needs to get done. In this book they teach you to bullet proof getting business and look at SHIFT as an opportunity instead of hard times, also bullet proofing to close in tough lending times to make sure you get the job done for clients. Must listen and read this book multiple times and go back and refer when a SHIFT does hit."

Fanatical Prospecting gives salespeople, sales leaders, entrepreneurs, and executives a practical, eye-opening guide that clearly explains the why and how behind the most important activity in sales and business development: prospecting. The brutal fact is that the number one reason for failure in sales is an empty pipe, and the root cause of an empty pipeline is the failure to consistently prospect.

He does a phenomenal deliverance of explaining why it's not about price but about value and service. If you want to feel confident about sales this book will definitely get your mind right. A must read especially if you want to get to the top.
