Discusses effective hiring, defeating any objection, the difference between salespeople and entrepreneurs, advertising, and cash incentives, and includes the Mackay 66 customer profile program, in a new edition of the classic business management handbook. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.


This straight-from-the-hip handbook by bestselling author and self-made millionaire Harvey Mackay spells out the path to success for readers everywhere. They will learn how to:

  • Outsell by getting appointments with people who absolutely, positively do not want to see you, and then making them glad they said "yes!"
  • Outmanage by arming yourself with information on prospects, customers, and competitors that the CIA would envy - using a system called the "Mackay 66."
  • Outmotivate by using his insights to help yourself or your kids join the ranks of Amercia's one million millionaires.
  • Outnegotiate by knowing when to "smile and say no" and when to "send in the clones."

This one-of-a-kind book by a businessman who's seen it all and done it all has sold almost 2 million copies, and is the essential roadmap for everyone on the path to success.
