Andrea actually contacted me a couple weeks ago and asked if I would take a look at this new book that they’ve just written and include it in my series. Agreeing to review it, they promptly sent me a copy of their book.
In the spirit of The Richest Man in Babylon by George Samuel Clason, Go for No! uses fiction to impart the authors’ lessons. It’s important to note that although it is fiction, it is based “to a great degree” on Richard Fenton’s life. Let’s take a look at the back cover:
Sticks and Stones May Break My Bones, but “NO” Can Never Hurt Me!
That’s the lesson twenty-eight year old copier salesman Eric James Bratton is about to learn. And he’s going to learn it from the most unlikely of mentors — himself!
Imagine going to bed one night, then to awaken the next morning in a strange house with no idea of how you got there. Only this house doesn’t belong to just anyone — it belongs to you…a wildly successful future version of the person you might one day become, providing you are willing to start doing one simple thing.
As is customary before I read, I quickly skimmed through the book to get an overall feel of its content and layout. At first glance I was a little disappointed because it seemed to be a book written exclusively for motivating salespeople. However, after reading it today (it took me under an hour to finish), I realized that although it is intended for salespeople, it has some deeper and more profound teachings for those who open their minds to it.
This week, I’ll uncover some of these teachings as we delve into Go for No! So stay tuned…
