Foreword by Jeb Blount,

CEO of Sales Gravy and author of FANATICAL PROSPECTING



There are lots of sales books out there, but not like this one. The Sales Survival Handbook is the only book that gives you the real, harsh truth about life in sales while making you laugh (and cry), combining humor and sales lessons in one comprehensive manual. Written by the creator of Sales Humor, it’s hilarious, inappropriate, and brutally honest.

Working in sales, you have the opportunity to make more money, drink more coffee, and consume more prescription medication than you ever thought possible! You also get customers who lie to your face, quotas that change as soon as you hit them, management that puts soul-crushing demands on you to produce . . . and coworkers who would push you down a flight of stairs without blinking to get to first place on the board.

Whether you’ve been in sales for a while, are new to the game, or just want a to feel human emotion for the first time in years, this humorous yet practical guide shows you how to:

  • Come out to your friends and family as a salesperson
  • Overcome objections without tears
  • Date while working in sales (Mission Impossible)
  • Get out of a sales slump…legally
  • Cold call without a sedative
  • Beg for referrals
  • Spot the common types of customers, coworkers, and managers
  • Complain about the comp plan
  • Deal with the day-to-day
  • And much, much more
