If you think about an Olympic polevaulter, you could just turn up and pole vault. That said there is probably a large amount of preparation required before the athlete even turns up at the event. Here we have a sales book is isn't just "another" book about process, but focuses on the close. Of course, nobody turns up and closes a deal there is preparation required. James takes you through the steps, what you need to do during a sale to prepare and then how you can use different techniques to get ...more

This book was actually a cool gift, given to me by my manager. It was a pretty good book. There's many things they don't teach you in Business school. Among them: how to properly communicate with people, understanding their needs, and practising the sales process correctly.

There were many things that I did not know before and learned once I read this book. That is the reason why I consider it to definitely be a good read. It certainly does the job, especially for a first sales book.

This book is far better than I expected. It is not about closing techniques. It is more about ADVANCING techniques. It is very different from other sales books. It could seem to be filler but the author gives value throughout the book. It is authentic and honest sales technique. I highly recommend it.

This book is from Marketing & Sales section, and I bought it because I was looking to learn new things which could help to improve marketing strategies with my blog. I have to say that book isn’t quite what I was looking for, but there are good tips and insights shared in this book which I can use. This book is best suited for corporate sales people who interact with their customers and have meetings with them, and have a small percentage interactions by p

Anyone Can Benefit from The Perfect Close

I'm not new to sales but I have always been intimidated by the close and my sales career (although sales is not my trade) could have been more robust in the past.

However as a small business owner I needed this manual. Well written, organized, good use of graphics. I can use what I've learned in these pages immediately.

I highly recommend this book to sales people at all levels in their career. Topics include moving forward with honest intent, planning for every encounter, advancing the sale, and an easy technique to close/advance business.

As a senior seller, I already apply many aspects of these teachings during my sales encounters. Now I will be able to put everything together and have a process that will work every time!

Read this book if you are in sales!

I started this book to strengthen my closing expertise. This book is fairly simple to remember and implement, though long, but it gradually builds up the concept.

WIIFM: this book is useful for any one front facing customer to close deals.

I will have to come back to this. Suffice it to say that this book is so good, so filled with relevant and applicable knowledge and best practices - that I am immediately re-reading it so I can better digest, reflect and implement.
Superlative work.
