View Full Version : Books about personal productivity and sales
05-30-2011, 02:21 AM
Was hoping you all could give me a hand with some research I am doing for a book. I am hitting a dead end, and am amazed at the following fact:
There are very few books that have been written on the subject of personal productivity and sales.
Has anybody come across any? I don't even care if they were good or not. I am trying to compile a list and I am having a very difficult time.

I don't know of any books that specifically cover personal productivity and sales combined. That said, I have seen training materials for particular industries that address time management and sales in the same arena.
One example is a system I saw for insurance agents to track potential leads and possible clients. I believe the system was put out by FC&S but I am not positive.
Perhaps other materials are available for particular types of salespeople to help them address time management or personal productivity.
I would take GTD alone over any of these systems, though! :-)

The sales classics (in my opinion):
SPIN Selling, Major Account Sales Strategies (both by Neil Rackham)
Selling is Dead by Marc Miller
