Eli Jones, coauthor, Selling ASAP, and executive director, Sales Excellence Institute, University of Houston

David M. Rowell, publisher, The Travel Insider (thetravelinsider.info)
"A must–read for anyone considering a career that requires significant business travel. From my position in the front of the plane, I see the faces that are written about in this book. It is an informative, accurate, and empathetic assessment that anyone who travels, including pilots, should read, and learn from."
Buzz Collins, pilot, Southwest Airlines
"One word best describes Rob Jolles and why he connects with his readers so well: he is genuine. People listen to him, trust him, and learn from him because he is authentic, because he′s been there, and because we relate to him. Don′t miss this book! As our trusted advisor, Rob shares some very special insights about pounding the pavement with us... his fellow Road Warriors."
