Publisher's Summary

‘Everyone is a salesperson by some measure and selling is not a pushy, winner-take-all, macho act. It is an empathy-led, process-driven, knowledge-intensive discipline.’ 

In his new book, Sell - the first book on the subject by an Indian practitioner of business - best-selling author and inspiration to generations of entrepreneurs Subroto Bagchi presents the concepts of selling and salesmanship from his unique perspective. Elaborating on the essential skills required to be a successful seller - whether of a product, a service, an idea, an organization or even personal skills - Bagchi crystallizes his on-the-ground knowledge about salesmanship through stories and anecdotes from his vast repertoire of experiences and extensive reading to provide wise and profound insights and advice on making an impact on others and acquiring the power to influence their decisions. 

A comprehensive and contemporary treatise on the art, science and ‘witchcraft’ behind selling, Sell will redefine the meaning of salesmanship.

Lacking in universality of concept of selling

It is a good read. The author gives numerous examples from his experience to drive home the point. The book for the most part is a conversation between the author and the 'druids' he knew which adds a personal touch to the book.
However, one place where I felt the book was lacking is the narrowness in terms of perspective and applications for one specific field of business. The author initially mentions that selling is not just limited to sales people but to every professional. One such helpful example was NGO he elucidated to in the book. It would have been very helpful to dive into the universality of the principle of selling. Examples from sports, research, entertainment industry, politics, PR handling of celebrities are few such cases where I would have loved to see more of the concept of selling applied. Infact I was looking forward for a chapter on Orissa government and skill development program which the author mentions early on in the book, only to be disappointed.

Good for beginners and experienced

Though I am not a salesperson, I realise it's importance in today's world. This book was a very good starting point for knowing the trade and may be also for the experienced ones I believe. The author glues you and also teaches many tricks of the trade. Most are related to sales, a few like gratitude could be general as well. The author brings to the table his tremendous experience in corporate world.
Narration is great too.

Good book for sales professionals

If you want to up your game, it's important to learn. And what better way to learn than learning from experts?

In this book the author interviews such experts and presents the crux of what we ought to takeaway in a memorable story format.

The voice of the narrator is pleasing. I just wish this was longer... otherwise it's a good book, especially for people selling high value sevices.
