Revue de presse

The summer after my freshman year in high school, a ton of years ago, I was miserable. I didn't have any new friends at school, I was having a hard time at home, and I was trying to get through everyday with a smile on my face. I took a trip with a bunch of people I didn't know, a 10 day backpacking trip to an island in lake superior. Our guide was a 75 year-old man named Dave. Everyday, Dave read us a chapter from this book, and everyday my respect for him grew. The day I got off the island I bought the book and began my ten month journey through the scrolls it contained. I've followed the instructions, reading each chapter for one month, several times. I've worn out several copies and given away several others. This book profoundly changed my life. Not only am I extraordinarily successful in terms of "material" success, but I am happier than I ever imagined it was possible to be several years ago before I went on that island. Buy this book, follow it's instructions, and even if you are never the richest woman or man on earth, you will be among the happiest. --By A Customer on December 11, 2000

I don't know if I misread the instructions or if I'm the only one who actually followed them. If you follow scroll I, it should take you the better part of a year to finish the rest of the book. Following that, I'm only 2/3rds of the way through scroll II (I got the book a couple of months ago, but didn't consistently follow scroll II daily and at the 16-day mark, decided to start again at day 1). I can definitely say it has changed my life, and even the lives of those around me (most of all a person I work with who is hard to get along with and hence gets along with no one--except, now, me, and it really has seemed to make his attitude at work more positive overall). Though difficult at first, it quickly became easy to apply the first principle, and finally find myself easily "making people your greatest resource" as so many *other* authors suggest you do for success in life, although it is not specifically suggested in this book. I have gotten a half dozen new and better job offers in the couple of months since I started the book, accepted one of the first ones and am currently in the process of exploring the others. I see all these "couldn't put the book down till I finished" and I think, wow, you went a year with a book in your hand? Personally I'm still in considerable suspense waiting to see what scroll III says, let alone the entire rest of the book! --By A Customer on November 1, 1999

I can see why some people will give this book less than 5 stars. If you are looking for fancy smancy selling techniques, look elsewhere. This is not about technique, it is about the habits; the character that makes up a great salesman. I first started using this book 9 years ago. I would read a chapter a day, three times a day and cheated by reading ahead. More importantly, I began to make these habits my habits. At that time, my sales were less than satisfactory. Within weeks, my sales climbed and I began winning contest after contest. When people asked me what I was doing, I would pull out this book which I carried with me. Some would leaf through it and giggle. And they wondered why their sales were so low! I also found that when I got sick of this book and felt like I had mastered it, a short while later, my sales fell again. So did my attitude. So I started the process all over again and you guessed it, I started making sales again, this time faster than before. Over the years, I have bought many copies of The Greatest Salesman in The World. Some were dog eared and worn out, some I just lost or sometimes I kept one at the office and one at home. --By Tony DeFrancisco on September 30, 2005

Présentation de l'éditeur

What you are today is not important... for in this  runaway bestseller you will learn how to change  your life by applying the secrets you are about to  discover in the ancient scrolls.According to the 1930 U.S. Census, Og Mandino was born in Natick, Massachusetts on December 12, 1923 to parents Silvio and Margaret Mandino, and was named Augustine after his paternal Italian grandfather.[2][3] Mandino was once the editor of his high school paper and planned to attend the University of Missouri's journalism school When in the summer of 1940, before he was able to enter college, his mother died from a massive heart attack, he decided to work in a paper factory until 1942. Afterward, he joined the United States Army Air Corps where he became a military officer and a bombardier. He flew for thirty bombing missions over Germany on board a B-24 Liberator during World War II.[4] During this time, he flew with fellow pilot and movie star, James Stewart. After his military duties, Mandino became an insurance salesman. One wintry November morning in Cleveland, Mandino contemplated committing suicide. But as he sorted through several books in a library, volumes of self-help, success and motivation books captured Mandino's attention. He selected some titles, went to a table and began reading. Mandino followed his visit to the library with more visits to many other libraries around the United States. He read hundreds of books that dealt with success, a pastime that helped him alleviate his alcoholism. It was in a library in Concord, New Hampshire, where he found W. Clement Stone's classic, Success Through a Positive Mental Attitude, a book that changed Mandino for the better.

I didn't expect it to be that way, but it reads quite well (about 100 pages) and the story is inspiring. Most of all, even if it's ancient English, the story is written in a terrific style ! To sum it up, it's about a man's fate as the greatest salesman and how he can pass it along according to basic (but inevitable) principles. Loved it.

This book is a tale on how a person starts from zero and becomes the greatest salesman of the world, using his master's advice. It is not magic. It is just that he keeps persisting, by reading motivational letters day by day, month by month - given by his master. He acts in spite of fear, and he transforms himself. Truly motivating.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It’s about time. 12 octobre 2016

Bought my first copy of this book in 1983. Picked up my second copy in 1991…, my third in 2000. This is my fourth copy. It’s about time. I really need this book by my side, and I think Og knew this, for all of us. I read all these reviews that are full of praise and analysis. I thought I would just leave a simple review, and that is this; if you read this book, you will be buying it again later on in your life, because you will realize that you need it by your side too.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable, Easy Read, Motivational 18 mai 2008

The first book I have read by Og Mandino, THE GREATEST SALESMAN IN THE WORLD, is a delightful little book on self-improvement. It is a classic, and many self-help authors will borrow the wisdom, principles, and themes in the book.

The story begins with Hafid, who overseas the largest multinational trade empire in the civilized world. He possesses scrolls that contain principles that he applied in his life to become the "greatest salesman in the world." The story is uplifting, interesting and moving and briefly shows Hafid's rise from a camel boy to the "greatest salesman in the world." The idea is that we, as Hafid, can become the "greatest salesman in the world" if we diligently, consistently, and rigorously apply the principles contained in the scrolls. You want to remind yourself of these principles, apply them until they become habits.

The principle of persistence:
"I was not delivered in this world in defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shephard. I am a lion and refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep. I will hear not those who weep and complain, for their disease is contagious. Let them join the sheep. The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny." Moreover, "nor will I allow yesterday's success to lull me into today's complacency, for this is the great foundation of failure."

The idea we are "nature's greatest miracle," and I quote:
"Within me burns a flame which has been passed from generations uncounted and its heat is a constant irritation to my spirit to become better than I am, and I will. I will fan this flame of dissatisfaction and proclaim my uniqueness to the world." The idea is that you are unique, and you must utilize your own uniqueness to achieve success. Copying others' uniqueness can only get you so far. You, your uniqueness as a person, is an advantage you must use.

Other principles and ideas include but are not limited to controlling one's emotions, enjoying each day as if it were your last, remembering to laugh at yourself, and being a person of action.

THE GREATEST SALESMAN IN THE WORLD is a small, easy-to-read book but is vast in its simple wisdom. It is definitely worthwhile reading, especially if you are in the grind of your career, educational program, small business, and so forth and need something small, easy-to-read but also inspiring.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Truths that will help anyone in life, not just in selling! 24 octobre 2016

While more inspirational than a set of rules for selling well, it is a thoughtful and engaging story of how to conduct yourself as a part of humanity. Naturally, these small seeds of wisdom, properly followed, will be of great help in a sales career. Good truths to study and apply.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Stuff To Remember 21 juin 2006
Par theboombody - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book says the secret to learning is forming good habits. In other words, one only learns by repeating the same good things over and over again. Simple idea that I think we can all agree on.

Unfortunately, the world of public education seems to be trying its best to move away from this idea. The new educational training institutions hate memorization and the repetition necessary to get there. That may be one of many reasons why the state of public schools is more dire now than it has been in the past. Promoting books like this could easily rectify the problem. Through this book, one can learn to embrace failure as a necessary path to success and avoid the trap of attempting to hide failure in a ridiculous attempt to protect self-esteem. (Can we say giving kids who can't speak English passing grades in English?)

That unrelated issue aside, this book is full of many great traditional and common sense ideas. Some of the following paraphrased points I particularly liked:

-I will greet each day with love for everything, light and dark.
-I will persist until I succeed; always will I take another step.
-I must fail many times to succeed only once
-My differences are what will make me successful
-I am grateful for the undeserved gift of a priceless new day
-I will bury doubt with faith
-My last must be my best
-My moods may change without reason, but so do the moods of others.
-I won't labor to be happy. Instead I'll remain too busy to be sad.
-I will raise my goals as soon as they are attained.
-This is the time. This is the place. I am the man. I will act now. I will multiply my value today.
-I will pray for God to guide me.

This book is a reminder that there's no magic formula. You've got to work every day and fail every day to reach any goal you'll ever have. That's the way it is, that's the way it has always been, and that's the way it will always be. The sooner we realize that the lack of a magic formula is a good thing, the happier we'll be.

I don't know why I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5. Maybe I thought the build-up to the scrolls could have been a little bit shorter. Maybe I've read enough books to recall seeing a lot of the above paraphrased ideas before, but not enough books to see how this one stands out above the others. I'm just not sure.

In any case, it was indeed a brilliant idea to include the first chapter of Part II at the end of the book. I may end up purchasing the sequel to see what happens.
