"Over the years I have had ample opportunities to be the beneficiary of Jonathan Whistman′s keen insights into the human psyche and how it in simple terms relates to successfully managing the prospecting and sales process in capital equipment sales. His command of the subject has led me to engage his help on many occasions, as I worked to develop or fine–tune diverse sales teams under my purview. The results have always been stellar and I am glad to see he has taken the opportunity to distill his real–life business experiences into an easily accessible and straight forward book on how to be an accountable and successful sales manager."
