Selling Is Better Than Sex: Hilarious Book With Great Sales LessonsJan. 9 2010
- Published on Amazon.com
When I first read about the wacky book title "Selling Is Better Than Sex", I could not resist the temptation of arranging my copy. Alen Majer's latest book is loaded with sales lessons, tips, tactics and golden nuggets of advice. The comparison of Selling with Sex, though, makes the book title weird, bizarre, far-out and one of its own kind, yet it contains extremely interesting and absorbing stuff on Selling. Alen has successfully taught the art and science of selling in a very humorous and hilarious manner.
The book starts with Napolean Hills' (of Think & Grow Rich fame) theory of Transmutation of Sex Energy and then it boldly and blatantly goes on to prove that there are around 200 ways that suggest Selling Is Better Than Sex. Sometimes, it made me burst into laughter.
Selling is actually transference of enthusiasm and thrill. Book teaches you how to get thrill out of selling. If you can learn to transfer energy that you have for the pleasure of sex and transmit that into your sales efforts, the rewards will be phenomenal is crux of Selling IS Better Than Sex.
The book talks about almost every aspect of the discipline of Selling, be it prospecting, customer retention, customer services, going the extra mile, follow ups, closing techniques and prioritization (Paraeto's law of 80:20).
Learning multiplies with fun, Alen's book proves it. It is simply unputdownable and highly recommended!

Selling is a skill that needs to be mastered with time and experience, but I must say that this book gave me the edge over my competitors, and it's true that selling is better then sex, that's because all the rules that apply to sex are kind of reversed in selling, in selling the quicker you are the better you are, you don't have to take your socks off and the more customers you have the better. I loved reading this guide and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to master the art of selling.
