Good book with selling strategy based on your personality profile. If you are not into personality profile selling you will not like it.

Based on the "Strengths Finder" test, this spin-off book is about using your 5 Strengths to help you in a sales position. This book is non-stop anecdotes, with some good principles along the way. Unless you are in a traditional sales role, some of the tips will be hard to apply.

I really like the approach that Tony Rutigliano and Brian Brim took on this book. It is incredibly important, from my experience, to identify one's strengths, focus on creative ways to utilize them, and consistently use them from day-to-day (especially in sales). There were a number of great insights that were included in this work. That being said, there were also a few things I found myself disagreeing with as well. Perhaps you will have a similar impression.

I love the strength finder and the books of markus buckingham. This sales book didnt stimulate me much. It gives some useful tips on best practices for sales people and tries to link the gallup strengths to each sales process stage. But it is hard to put into your brain and hard to see ow to apply this in practice.

Reader will get the gist of the book in first few chapters, after that it's the same theory said in different stories.
