I am a Real Estate Broker in Central Oregon and the ebook "Out of the Question-A Salesman's Dilemma" was very helpful and informative! I will definitely use the techniques that are shared in this book in my business. I think the advise in this book would also be helpful in a social situation and interpersonal relationships - both of which are valuable in building business contacts. I would definitely recommend this book! Thank you James D. Patterson for sharing your hard earned knowledge that you acquired throughout your lifetime!
