This is of one of Top Ten Books on Selling of all time.
Few other books before High Probability Selling addressed the realities of the sales cycle today.
Prospecting is the most important part of the sales cycle; why waste time with the over 90% of initial contacts who aren't ready (in terms of want and budget)?
With High Probability Selling, you are continually getting prospect buy-in and commitment --- a much more focused and healthy way to sell.
This book ranks with David Sandler's "You Can't Teach a Kid to Ride a Bike at a Seminar", and with Bill Good's "Prospecting Your Way to Sales Success" as primers for anyone aspiring to a sales career, as well as training material for all levels of sales people.
Those who place this book below "SPIN Selling" or "Solution Selling" are missing the realities of today's marketplace. Like it or not, those darn prospects don't follow YOUR script or track. While these two books were supposedly the result of field testing, the principles of High Probability Selling are the result of similar behaviors of only the most successful salespeople, in a variety of fields.
