Going beyond marketing theory his approach encourages you to push the outrageous envelope to gain immediate sales. Not just for sales and marketing folks --this book is for anyone who influences the course and attitude of your company.

I highly recommend this book.'' -Mark Cuban Owner, Dallas Mavericks
