Marvellous, dazzling Tom Peters, author of In Search of Excellence Thoroughly entertaining -- Toby Young, author of How To Lose Friends and Alienate People You can never look upon a sale in quite the same way again. Buy Life's A Pitch and be enlightened -- Adrian Wooldridge The Economist Both inspiring and humbling, it sure as hell is a darn good read Management Today An engaging melange of research and reporting Bloomberg Reminds us that the best salespeople are resilient optimists - and that we all engage in sales of one sort or another. Delves Broughton makes an appealing, contrarian pitch Wall Street Journal Like Gladwell, Delves Broughton is drawn to success stories where natural talent takes second place to hard work. His enthusiasm and admiration are contagious Publishers Weekly
