Painfully Bad

Only valuable if you would like to learn more about MLM parties or are friends of the authors. Had to stop midway though, too tedious, too long and too often addressing info having nothing to do with MLM. Don't waste your time on this. Read the Ultimate Sales Machine by Chet Holmes and learn about what really counts. Sales knowledge!

Very disappointing

I was very disappointed with this book. The authors sound like very nice people, but the content was geared completely toward party plan selling, not mainstream network marketing.

I am a full-time career network marketer, but there was almost nothing in the book that I could apply to my business. I wish I would have known that before purchasing the book.

The book might have value for party plan sellers, but I feel it would be a waste of money and time for other marketers.
