Great Deal with Dan Pink – To Sell is Human
If I read a book that cost me $20 and I get one good idea, I’ve gotten one of the greatest bargains of all time. –Tom Peters
I respect Tom Peters work and happen to be a huge Dan Pink fan. For those that remember Dan’s visit with us in Southern California at one of our Quarterly HR Learning Events, and who follow his work, he has a new book which we are all excited about. It is “To Sell Is Human.”
I am honored to be part of the Team Dan Pink, comprised of 96 folks to promote and get the word out about Dan’s book. As a reader and recommender of good books, I have been anxiously awaiting this one. I recommend you take the time to look at this pre-order deal which is pretty impressive.
Aren’t we all in the business of selling anyway? In “To Sell Is Human,” Dan is making the case that EVERYONE is “in sales,” whether or not you’re “in sales” for a living. Here’s a two-minute trailer for the book:

Dan writes smart books that are intended to promote change: change your thinking, change your behavior, change your organization. I expect his latest book will deliver on that promise.
A good use of your next $20 book investment
If you preorder To Sell Is Human before the December 31, 2012 release date, you can get a raft of FREE goodies–what Dan’s calling the First Mover Package:
Exclusive New Year’s Day webinar with Dan where you can ask him anything
To Sell Is Human Workbook
Signed Book Plate – a hand-signed sticker that you can put in your book or anywhere else
Field Notes First Mover Edition
Interview with the master of influence, Robert B Cialdini, Ph.D.
Interview with Adam Grant, Ph.D., associate professor of management at The Wharton School
Dan just announced all of this today–you can learn more about the book and the preorder details over at his web site, www.danpink.com. I’m receiving an advance reading copy and will have a review posted as soon as I can. If I weren’t receiving the review copy, though, I’d have already placed my order for the book–even without the goodies.
Full disclosure: As stated, I am member of the To Sell Is Human launch team and will be receiving the goodies above as well as the advance reading copy of the book and a signed copy of the hardcover. I’m not being paid for my review (good or bad) or receiving any other compensation. I’ve paid for all the other copies of Dan’s books that I own as well as those I’ve given away as gifts. In other words, I’m not in this for the freebies but because I really like Dan’s books and ideas. I would love to arrange his return to Southern California at some point!
