The New Sales Manager Challenges for the 21st Century


The New Sales Manager Challenges for the 21st Century by Walter Vieira

The second edition of The New Sales Manager is an enormously useful book that provides practical advice and a sound foundation in sales management to young managers. It is also an interesting, quick revision for senior sales managers who want to revisit the theory of sales management, in a painless, and perhaps, entertaining way. Covering the entire range of functions of a sales manager, the book has been thoroughly revised and includes plenty of illustrations, Real-life anecdotes and caselets to match the changes in the business environment.


A handy book, it is not limited to a purely western setting. With broken down narratives that are designed like short letters, there is a visual element that comes from cartoons and a design format for someone who may not be into reading lengthy passages. It also has typical examples drawn from small town Indian settings. -- www.livemint.com Providing practical advice and a sound foundation in sales management, the book helps sales managers revisit the theory of sales management in a simple, entertaining manner with the help of illustrations and real-life anecdotes. -- The Asian Age
