You REALLY need to get "The Whole World Is Out or Busy" by Irwin Burt Meisel - it's his best book.
Oh, wow--great tip. Thank you for sharing!

I ordered (from Amazon also) "Close Like the Pros" by Steve Marx, which I really liked because it discusses interactive selling--listening to the the buyer, working with him, and self-evaluating motives and techniques.

Didn't get to Vito, Sandler Rules was ok, just a rehash of his cant teach a kid to ride a bike at a seminar. Same with the next book, but all very goo reminders of basic principles. Leimberg's book, Planning, is so detailed. He has 5 books and they are all for free at the Virtual Assistant site.

I read most of Krumroy's previous books and liked them very muc even though they are short.

Wedge is great, I have both of his books. I like his process for it. I recommend this book for financial professionals/ P&C

Just thought I would post a good list of books that are recommended. The Meisel and Savage Books are autographed which are kinda cool.
Great books! I also have one signed by Burt, and like perusing really old books from back when they called it Life ASSURANCE. You can also get reprints of old books from Amazon e.g. The Psychology of Selling Life Insurance (1922).
