“I will persist until I succeed.

I was not delivered into this world into defeat, nor does failure course in my veins. I am not a sheep waiting to be prodded by my shepherd. I am a lion and I refuse to talk, to walk, to sleep with the sheep.

The slaughterhouse of failure is not my destiny.

I will persist until I succeed.”

—From the ancient scroll marked III in The Greatest Salesman in the World

Praise for The Greatest Salesman in the World

“The Greatest Salesman in the World is one of the most inspiring, uplifting, and motivating books I have ever read. I can well understand why it has had such a splendid acceptance.”—Norman Vincent Peale

“At last! A book on sales and salesmanship that can be read and enjoyed by veteran and recruit alike! I have just completed The Greatest Salesman in the World for the second time—it was too good for just one reading—and in all sincerity, I say that it is the most readable, most constructive and most useful instrument for the teaching of sales as a profession that I have ever read.”—F.W. Errigo, Manager, U. S. Sales Trainer at Parke, Davis & Company

“I have read almost every book that has ever been written on salesmanship, but I think Og Mandino has captured all of them in The Greatest Salesman in the World. No one who follows these principles will ever fail as a salesman, and no one will ever be truly great without them; but, the author has done more than present the principles—he has woven them into the fabric of one of the most fascinating stories I have ever read.”—Paul J. Meyer, President of Success Motivation Institute, Inc.

“Every sales manager should read The Greatest Salesman in the World. It is a book to keep at the bedside, or on the living room table—a book to dip into as needed, to browse in now and then, to enjoy in small stimulating portions. It is a book for the hours and for the years, a book to turn to over and over again, as to a friend, a book of moral, spiritual and ethical guidance, an unfailing source of comfort and inspiration.”—Lester J. Bradshaw, Jr., Former Dean, Dale Carnegie Institute of Effective Speaking & Human Relations

“I was overwhelmed by The Greatest Salesman in the World. It is, without doubt, the greatest and the most touching story I have ever read. It is so good that there are two musts that I would attach to it: First, you must not lay it down until you have finished it; and secondly, every individual who sells anything, and that includes us all, must read it.”—Robert B. Hensley, President, Life Insurance Co. of Kentucky

“Og Mandino provocatively prods your attention into fascination as he masterfully relates his story. The Greatest Salesman in the World is a book with emotional appeal for millions.”—Roy Garn, Executive Director, Emotional Appeal Institute

“There are very few men who have the writing talent with which Og Mandino has been blessed. The thoughts contained in this book symbolize the importance of selling to the entire world’s existence.”—Sol Polk, President, Polk Bros., Inc.
本書是描寫公元前後近百年,所發生在西亞耶路撒冷、大馬士革一帶偉大的推銷員成功的故事,間接和直接地闡揚推銷員以及一般人生活、工作的成功原則。但是,本書並不是按故事發生的自然順序平舖直敘的,而是提出故事中幾個特殊的場面,進行詳盡的特寫。有些情節是借助人物的回憶和語言而敘述的。因此,讀完全書之後,才能了悟故事的梗概。
 
這裡,為了閱讀方便、易於了解起見,簡略地敘寫故事的大意—?
 
在公元前數十年,青年帕斯羅斯在西亞耶路撒冷、大馬士革一帶,給一個商隊當照管牲畜的駱駝童。一天,當一位從東方來的旅客受到兩個土匪的攻擊時,帕斯羅斯救了這位旅客,於是這位旅客就把帕斯羅斯帶回家裡,將他視為自己家中的一位成員。
 
帕斯羅斯熟悉了新生活以後,他的朋友?—那位旅客?—就每天給他講解一個木箱內,用羊皮紙寫的十個成功羊皮卷;這十個羊皮卷都編有號碼。第一號成功羊皮卷包含一個學習的祕訣,其餘的羊皮卷包含著一般事業上成功的祕訣和原則。
 
在第二年中,他天天教帕斯羅斯這些成功羊皮卷,最後把這個木箱連同十個成功羊皮卷、五十塊金子和一封信贈給帕斯羅斯,那封信命令帕斯羅斯要把獲得的財富,分一半給不幸的人,並要將成功羊皮卷的事保密,直到發現一位有為的青年時,就把木箱連同羊皮卷、金子傳給他,並對他作同樣的要求,等傳到第三人以後,便可將羊皮卷公諸於世。
 
帕斯羅斯於是告別這個家庭,按成功羊皮卷的教導,奮鬥了幾十年,終於成為國際商業企業家,偉大的推銷員。
 
書中透過一個傳奇性的故事,從故事本身提出了一些「做人、做事」的重要觀點和原則,又間接地提出了十個成功原則。這些不僅對推銷員,而且對一般人有很大的指導意義;因為就廣義推銷說來,每個人都是自己的推銷員。
 
之所以採用傳奇性的故事,無非是為了烘托這些原則的重要性,引起讀書的興趣和重視,增強這些原則的效果。
 
喜愛閱讀的朋友們,或許不致過於要求故事情節的真實性、合理性和一致性,不會計較這幾方面的不完善,而能把主要注意力集中到學習合理、有用、正確的原則。這樣,想必每個讀友就會無疑地收到意想不到的實效。
 
透過本書的學習,您一定會增強成功的信心和把握!
 
本書特色
 
每一位銷售員都應當閱讀這本書。它是一本適合放在枕邊或者放在任何桌上的書,它是在需要時要隨時查考的書,或者時常翻閱的書,欣賞各小段激勵部分的書。它是一本適宜作短期和長期閱讀的書,一本要再三見到的書,就像要再三見到的朋友一樣,是一本關於道德、精神和倫理指南的書,是一個靠得住的安慰與鼓舞的泉源。
