    In 1990 I was transitioning from running a nonprofit energy group to owning a for profit construction business I was confident in most things, but not the mechanics of sales I found this book in the remainder bin and was thrilled it combined business and fiction information and a plot There was a line that summarized the entire sales process you want it I have it you can have it It remains the foundation of what I do.

    Reasonably good read, though the author s feminist politics can sometimes get in the way of the plot I liked the story of the cult who get involved in making the dolls where does she think up these ideas , though even this one gets mired in what appeared to be a bit of token lesbianism towards the end.
