This comprehensive catalogue of sales tips, maxims and never-to-be-forgotten rules of thumb should be on every salesperson’s desk.

    This summary is a great companion to the Gitomer book itself. The important points in the book are all in the summary and is a great reference whenever you want to remember those points without having to go through the whole book again and again or bookmarking pages.
