Becka's basic notion -- that sales success can follow from a "Hollywood" model of making a sales presentation a "performance", and so on is an excellent model well worthy of consideration. The problem is that this magazine-length article, expanded to a fairly thin book. I read it front-to-back in a few hours, and while I will loan it to some of my colleagues, it isn't going to be the one I buy for my entire sales staff.

The concepts of selling aren't new... but I can honestly say I got some ideas from this book that I hadn't tried before. It's a new way for me to look at how I present a sale. Heck, I figure one nugget that helps me close a sale is well worth the price of the book -- and it was. I thought about what Becka said about it all being a show and I changed a few things I said in the next presentation. I landed the biggest contract of my career. (No lie!) It also gives me some concrete guidelines that I want to establish with my staff -- it's all a show...they are part of my cast too. Another benefit: I laughed my butt off in some places (very rare for a business book!) This book is on my business shelf next to the Guerilla books (I have over 200 books on small business).

I read it cover to cover and it just was a little boring, frankly. One too many movie references started to sound like Tom was a fawning hollywood fan, not trying to help me sell. Also, I wasn't sure what he ever sold. Generally speaking, I wish I had the time back. Sounded like a stand-up comedian trying to write about sales, not a born salesman telling me how he did it. Maybe if he was writing to tell me about how to survive the stand-up grinder, it'd be more authentic.

The book was entertaining and informative at the same time. While Becka didn't reinvent the wheel it made me smile and feel better about my career at a time when things are kind of tough. It gave me some new ideas that I am implementing in my presentations.
I read a lot of these types of books and No Business is unique, and beneficial to anyone in sales.

Tom Becka gives interesting insight and compares every sales person to entertainers. It was fun to read and really made me think. He compares the things that stars do with what sales people should be doing. I liked the part where he writes about the tenacity you need to be successful by showing what the big stars had to do before they made it big. Even if you're not in sales you can take away some good points from this book.

Becka with his quick wit and interesting stories made this book an easy and entertaining read with a lot of good tips. I have used his approaches in my sales calls with good results. The book has more than paid for itself already.
