To Sell Is Human is a bestselling book by Daniel H. Pink which makes us realize that at the end of the day every human is a salesman. As the cover of the book says, learn the surprising truth about persuading, convincing and influencing others.
Summary of the Book
There are some people who work as salesmen. They spend hours of their time selling a product and convincing customers. However, one does not realize that this is something that every one of us does at every given point of our lives. This is applicable whether it is a sales person, a parent trying to persuade their child to study, an entrepreneur trying to run his business, a teacher trying to teach or a manager ensuring the employees are getting work done. Each one of us has to sell ourselves, or our words, to get what we want out of another person. This book will amuse you in terms of getting you to understand how we’re all people of sales in little ways that wouldn’t have occurred to us before.
