"'To Sell Is Human' offers a fresh look at the art and science of selling ... Daniel H. Pink draws on a rich trove of social science for his counterintuitive insights.

So much fun to read that you forget that you are supposed to be learning. Also, this book helps us all become better people by following Pink's ABC's of sales. Attunement, buoyancy and clarity. Read this and you'll find fun takeaways that you will experiment with in everyday life.

The S word...sales. So many of us don't want to do it, or think we shouldn't have to, except that we're actually selling ideas all day long. We sell to get along with friends, to make happy families, and to be successful at work. The only question is: do you want to be good at it?
