Chapter 9. Power Tools of Influence, Persuasion, and Selling

 

"Everyone is a salesperson whether they realize it or not. You may not be selling a product or service for money, but in our daily lives, each of us are in situations where we need to influence and persuade other people and affect their decisions in favor of our position."

 
 --Jerry Bruckner, author
