This review is from: Little Gold Book of YES! Attitude: How to Find, Build and Keep a YES! Attitude for a Lifetime of SUCCESS (Hardcover)I've been gravitating more towards personal improvement books and blogs of late, and this particular book was one that I was looking forward to receiving... Little Gold Book of YES! Attitude: How to Find, Build and Keep a YES! Attitude for a Lifetime of SUCCESS by Jeffrey Gitomer.

Gitomer is well-known as a sales motivator, and many of his prior titles deal with the art of the sale. While there's still a bit of a sales focus in YES!, it's more designed to be a personal motivator for your attitude in all areas of life. In terms of content, he's similar in nature to the big names of personal improvement, such as Zig Ziglar, Jim Rohn, and others. But his style of writing is more "in your face",... Read more

Gitomer's latest will get you thinking!,
This review is from: Little Gold Book of YES! Attitude: How to Find, Build and Keep a YES! Attitude for a Lifetime of SUCCESS (Hardcover)Jeffrey Gitomer knows how to write about selling . . . I've read
and enjoyed two of his other books--THE LITTLE RED BOOK
OF SELLING and THE SALES BIBLE . . . in each instance, I
found myself taking copious notes . . . that's always a good sign;
i.e., it shows there is something that I wish to retain and/or share
The same thing happened when I devoured JEFFREY GITOMER'S
LITTLE GOLD BOOK OF YES! ATTITUDE . . . it took me just a few hours to read, but that's
misleading in that after I finished, I had to go back to revisit much
of it . . . and I'm sure I will continue to do so in the future, in that it
is that good.
Perhaps most importantly, Gitomer got me to think about what's
important in life . . . for example, when feeling down, he advises that all
you need to do is:

Yes! Yes? Well, uh, actually ... NO!!!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Little Gold Book of YES! Attitude: How to Find, Build and Keep a YES! Attitude for a Lifetime of SUCCESS (Hardcover)I confess I am usually a sucker for this genre of motivational self-help books. I thought Gitomer's "Little Black Book of Contacts" was superb. I think he laid a repetitious egg, a repetitious egg, a repet - oh, well, you get the idea.
He takes a simple idea - that we need a good attitude -- and pumps it up with so much hype and hot air, you could power a small city for weeks with the methane given off.
The idea could be expressed in two pages but he uses lots of EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!! and large print, cartoons and icons to stretch this into a book.
Nice try, Jeffrey, but there are likely 10.5 reasons why I thought the book laid an egg. (Your mileage may vary.)
Like chicken soup for your motivation -- it won't hurt and it may help.
