The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino; 24 editions; First DAISY for print-disabled Download ebook for print-disabled (DAISY). The Greatest Salesman in the World is a book that serves as a guide to a philosophy of salesmanship, and success, telling the story of Hafid, a poor camel boy. Audio Book and eBook: The Greatest Salesman In The World by OG Mandino.
My primary motivation in reading the book was to develop discipline, so I resolved to do it as recommended; I read each scroll 3 times a day, once when I woke up, once at lunch, and once before bed. Monday through Friday, for five weeks per scroll, then on to the next. It took almost a year to get through all ten, but as of last week, I finished without missing a single reading. Now, for full disclosure, I should point out that I tried to do this back in and failed after a few months.
I was doing it seven days a week back then, which I think had a dramatic effect on my ability to keep up with it. Having a break on the weekends has been crucial to all of my daily habits, giving me a chance to relax without worrying about whether I should be doing something.
So would I read this book again? Without hesitation. The first blow may cause not a tremor in the wood, nor the second, nor the third. Each blow, of itself, may be trifling, and seem of no consequence. Yet from childish swipes the oak will eventually tumble. It was in the 60's and written about B. If you vision it, if you are positive, if you act, if you keep trying, if you give back, Find your goal and never give up.
Dec 28, Joy rated it liked it. This book had lots of great information, but it was told in a story setting that annoyed me. I'd prefer just a list.
When the book was written in , Og Mandino was the most widely read inspirational ansd self-help author in the world. He believed that "failure will never overtake you if your determination to succeeed is strong enough.
Today I begin a new life. I will greet the day with love in my heart.
I will persist until I succ This book had lots of great information, but it was told in a story setting that annoyed me. I will persist until I succeed. I am nature's greatest miracle. I will live this day as if is my last. Today I will be master of my emotions. I will laugh at the world. Today I will multiply my value a hundredfold.
I will act now. I will pray for guidance.
Self-help books remind me of New Year's resolutions. It's good to have goals but the test comes in the follow-through. View 2 comments. I found this book brilliant, profound in its message and yet simple in its delivery.
It is one of those life-changing books that one can take as much or as little from, but cannot claim to be untouched by its message in some way. Although a short read in page numbers, this is not a quick read.
It needs time, patience, a clear mind and a highlighter! This book was recommended to me by a dear friend and I am immensely grateful.
I must add that I do not work in sales so the title puzzled me at firs I found this book brilliant, profound in its message and yet simple in its delivery. I must add that I do not work in sales so the title puzzled me at first.
Rest assured, this book is the story about a salesman, but is certainly not confined to sales or any one group of people for that matter. It is almost a manual to living a superb life, explained through a series of scrolls. I highly recommend this read to all my friends. View all 3 comments. Apr 18, Eric rated it it was amazing Shelves: There are three books that I read on a yearly basis: As a profession, I am not a salesman. I have never really been a salesman.
That's not the reason to read this book Dec 28, Justin rated it really liked it. Thankfully, Mandino saved it for the last chapter, allowing the reader to get through the great messages and mantras without depending on one's religious lean feeling betrayed. Except for the Gospel lesson, this was a great and well-written story that will be like a reference book anytime I catch myself lacking courage, motivation, or laughter.
Containing the basic principles of life, simple but powerful, this short book can change a person's life if he applies these principles properly. I admired each word of the book, as I admire the author's biography and how he led his life through pain and misery to joy and success. Sep 12, Julie Eddy rated it it was amazing. The story is simple, yet fascinating. Mandino uses a wonderful tale to catch your attention, to teach and, in the end, to blow your mind.
I will admit, I'm not the best at self-promoting. I didn't read this to find any "tips. What I found were truths that will help one through life. No surprises in revealing the 10 ways to change your life, but the surprise is revealed in the story. I encourage readers to take the journey to finding out exactly WHO is the greatest salesman in the world???
Jul 30, Sonja Arlow rated it liked it Shelves: A friend gave me this book and I finished it in about an hour. Its short and to the point however the ritualistic requirements for the practices in the book is not really my cup of tea.
The wisdom each scroll c A friend gave me this book and I finished it in about an hour. The wisdom each scroll contains is nothing new but perhaps we all need to sometimes be reminded that we are smart, capable and worthy of the things we desire in our lives and that bad times will always pass. Aug 07, Stu Morgan rated it it was amazing. Want to improve something, anything in your life? That usually involves changing habits. This short classic parable has helped inspire many people with a heart warming story and ten scrolls, each with a short but very important lesson.
In Mandino's story, the inheritors of the scrolls are told they must read each scroll morning, noon, and night for thirty days before moving to the next scroll. By doing so, the principals in each scroll become a habit. The message is powerful. Want to make a chan Want to improve something, anything in your life?
Want to make a change, sustained repetition is the answer. Unemployed and soul searching? Want to get in shape? Having a hard time getting organized? Just want to be inspired? Read the or so sparse pages through quickly or listen to the audio book while on a long trip alone, turn off the cell phone. You may be inspired to read each scroll thrice daily for thirty days - it will make a great positive change in your life.

The Greatest Salesman in the World II - eBook
I am normally not influenced by statements of the famous, but after reading the synopsis I was intrigued. I'm glad I was. Thank you Matthew and I wish you continued success in career, but more importantly life. Aug 11, Tihomir rated it it was amazing Shelves: It was one of the greatest book that ever read. I'm very excited about the story. The book wasn't only related to the sells. It also contains a lot of wisdom how to improve your life and how to become more excellent in everything you do.
I will read that book every year! Thank you Mr. Jul 27, Apokripos rated it liked it Recommends it for: To those who really want a positive change in their life. How his journey can also be yours. What they contain are enduring principles on how to improve your life, how the world works and how you can overcome obstacles real or imagined.

I feel as if it I write it here I might be depriving you of the exciting discovery that is yours to make. While it may seem a bit dated it was published in , the book still has some great concepts one may glean from it.
This is a case of different strokes for different folks. The message is familiar to anyone who has read through self-help and success books, but is presented in a very simple format… and is primarily written for Christians. If, however, you really think you can change your life, and that your success depends on your habits and attitudes, this book could start some very powerful changes. Some of my favorites passages from the book: For now is all you have.
Henceforth will I apply ALL my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy. Jan 04, Mayah Gilmer rated it really liked it Shelves: Mandino was not always a writer.
He them became an insurance salesman because he realized that not many were hiring for bombing pilots. There was a library in Concord, NH where he found himself reading W. Soon after, Og Mandino then became a very successful writer.
Germany, salesman, and success all refer to his book because they helped to form The Greatest Salesman in the World. In Germany, Paul has been chosen to become the greatest salesman in the world. He has been working for Hafid, who was the greatest salesman, but now he has to take over for him.
How would you feel if you were working for the president, and then asked to take over a whole country for him? Then the whole country rested in your hands, and counted on the decisions that you make. Paul agreed to the throne, but first he must go through the rules and challenges of becoming a great salesman.
He is then sent off on a spiritual journey in Damascus, reads the ten scrolls, and faces many obstacles both good and bad to take on the full throne. I really enjoyed the book. The book made me feel like I was actually there with Paul, and because I was able to real the rules that he had to follow, they made me think of ways to become a better person.
In each scroll that he read, there was a powerful message that not only related to him, but me also, and could also relate to others if they have the chance to read it.
If you are not a person who does not believe in God, or a higher power, then I do not recommend this book to you. In almost every chapter, Og Mandino relates to God, and how you must count on him to fulfill your accomplishments.

All in all, the book was very interesting, intriguing, and helpful to my knowledge. Jan 30, Brandon Clay rated it really liked it Shelves: I have been in sales for over 30 years and read almost ever title imaginable Check out my shelves with more to add! I had resisted reading this book seemed too trendy at the time to be relevant until I had my first "commission only" job.
The book did not provide me with closing techniques, prospecting methods, or anything that might immediately help me feed my wife and 6 month old. It did, however, provide me with something infinitely much better That is hard to quantify, but without i I have been in sales for over 30 years and read almost ever title imaginable Check out my shelves with more to add!
That is hard to quantify, but without it I used the inspiration of this book to become a student of sales and service. I have had great success in sales and now write my own sales books - The Sales Crumbs Trilogy - that are inspiration and instructional. They have been compared to this title often but go more into the contemporary challenges of a sales person going from struggle to success. Yes, I was inspired to engage a parable style approach due, in no small part, to this work by Og Mandino.
If you are in sales and love to quote "Glengarry Glen Ross" then this may not be a book for you. Dec 31, Neil Goldstone rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Fabulous book that I have read so many times that I have lost count.
Each time I read it, I read it the way it is meant to be read, staying on each "scroll" chapter for 30 days, before moving onto the next chapter, thus taking ten months to read the book. I try to live my life by the amazing tenets handed down for centuries in these ten scrolls. If we all lived by these tenets our world would be a much more loving, peaceful, and wonder-filled place to live. Feb 15, Nikolin Kote rated it it was amazing. I am not calling to a servant to bring me good.
I am not ordering an innkeeper to provide me with room. Never will I seek delivery of gold, love, good health, petty victories, fame, success, or happiness. Only for guidance will I pray, that I may be shown the way to acquire these things, and my prayer will always be answered. Jan 04, Ashley Reynolds rated it it was amazing.
I've read this book many, many times. Every time I read it, it's like the first time I read it. Although no book gives greater direction for life than the Bible, this one is incredibly lovely and helpful.
It was a gift from my mom when I was younger. She told me to dwell in it's instructions.
It's just a beautiful read. I've given it as a Christmas gifts to numerous friends and they've all echoed my sentiments. If you'd like to read it, let me know, and I'll buy you a copy!
View all 5 comments. Mar 31, Karen Jett rated it it was amazing. I selected this book based on the recommendation of a respected colleague. I thought it was going to be just another book on how to sell. When I read the first sentence, I knew that my expectations were wrong. While this book may improve your sales, its greater message is on how to live your life so that you will be successful. If this has piqued your curiosity at all, get a copy and read it.
It's short and only takes about 2 hours to read, so do it soon. Sep 20, Steve Lovejoy rated it it was amazing. This motivational "PMA" book is a re-read for me. While I may not agree with all the minor theories mentioned in passing, the overall premises that you and I were created for a purpose; that each of us has value;' that we all need encouragement, goals, and to fulfill said purpose are good ones.
The ultimately positive message is also a help when I am having difficulty with depression. Oct 18, Mario Tomic rated it it was amazing. This book went straight into my personal favorites of all time. It's extremely motivational and will inspire you to take action to achieve your goals.
I cannot recommend it enough. Don't let the title fool you, the book is not just about sales. The topic is more about general success and the 10 lessons presented in the book are evergreen wisdom.
I highly recommend you to check out this book! Aug 22, Clayton Bye rated it it was amazing Shelves: Og Mandino was the editor of Success Magazine for many years. I wish he had spent that time writing more books. Jun 17, Ly Nguyen rated it it was ok. Couldn't finish reading the book.

The first part is just to put on irrelevant makeup to the main contents of the books.The Slight Edge. I now have 3 blocks of time set aside during the day, everyday, which I did not have before I started reading this book. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. The message is powerful. December 10,
