The Top 100 Inspirational Books: 100 - 81
83 - The Greatest Salesman in the World
This book tells the story of Hadid, a poor camel boy who achieves a life of prosperity, but it’s really not a narrative so much as it is a loose philosophy of life as it relates to salesmanship and success. Although the book is only 128 pages, if you follow author Og Mandino’s reading plan it will take you 10 months to finish. Most of that time will be spent reaffirming simple truths like “persist until you succeed” and “live each day as if it were your last” until they’re ingrained in your psyche. That might not sound exciting or even inspirational, but millions have sworn that this powerful book has changed their lives forever.
