How to Win at the Sport of Business by Mark Cuban

What I like best: This book is packed with RAW information. Would you expect anything less from the outspoken owner of the Dallas Mavs? Mark Cuban probably familiar to most of you as being one of the judges on ABC's hit show Shark Tank so as you know he isn't one for sugar coating. He takes the same style to a mini book (84 pages) and gives you only his best "shots." At the very least and if for anything else you should read the mini segment - Twelve Cuban Mantras for Success - it is super impactful. One of my personal favorite's is his reminder that in business, to be a success, you only have to be right once! In general Cuban lives by the business mantra, "Sales cure all." I mean, how can I not support him, ha. Bottom line if your looking for a short, direct, punch you in the face style business "tips" book then look no further - FULL of one liners. Plus you can pick it up for like five bucks. No excuses.

Best Quote: "What makes a good salesperson? Let me be clear that it's not the person who can talk someone into anything. It's not the hustler who is a smooth talker. The best salespeople are the one's who put themselves in their customers shoes and provide a solution that makes the customer happy."
