Way of the Wolf: Straight Line Selling- Master the Art of Persuasion, Influence, and Success by Jordan Belfort

Bestselling author of “The Wolf of Wall Street”, Jordan Belfort, shares step-by-step instructions on using his very successful Straight Line System for any business, industry and even your personal life.  He notes that you do not have to be in sales to use this system.  You can use it from selling your great qualities in a job interview to selling anyone on a great idea.

He teaches one how to use the Three Tens to influence a customer.  He discusses the five core elements of the Straight Line System and notes the three things that “absolutely must come across in the first four seconds of an encounter with a customer”.  There are many other great factors to consider of which he includes examples and links to his website.

You may be thinking, “Why would I want to read this really dry subject material?  I’m not in sales.”  I admit I thought the same thing when I began, but Mr. Belfort’s writing, practical examples and great stories really move this book along, and I found myself thinking of ways to use various tips in my professional and personal life.  As one who has not watched the movie, “The Wolf of Wall Street”, I was able to form my own opinion of Mr. Belfort’s style and persona, and I can understand why he is so successful.    I wholeheartedly recommend this self-help guide to selling pretty much anything you want.

Thank you to Mr. Belfort, North Star Way, and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to review this book!
