You’re probably familiar with Harvey Mackay. He burst onto the business and success scene in 1996 with his book, Swim With The Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive. That became an international bestseller and was followed up by other instant classics such as, Dig Your Well Before You’re Thirsty, and Beware the Naked Man Who Offers You His Shirt.
Harvey called me about a month ago to say that he had a new book coming out, and would I look at a review copy. I did and that book, The Mackay MBA of Selling in the Real World is now out.
I’ve always been a fan of his work, so hate to say it, but Harvey messed up. This book is a dreadful mistake…
The title couldn’t be more wrong. Because it’s not the MBA of selling. It’s way more than that. It’s the MBA of success.
Yes salespeople will gobble this up like me with an In N Out Burger Double-Double with animal sauce! But it also is packed with tips, cartoons, short stories and lessons on networking, attitude, finding mentors, using social media, self-esteem, and the overall psychology of success.
It’s typical Harvey: lively, witty and fast-paced, written in an easy conversational tone. It’s a book about winning, in sales, business and life. And it needs to be in your library now. So run down to your local bookseller, or click on over to Amazon right pronto and grab it. Then stop back and let me know what you think.
