The Sales Survival Handbook: Cold Calls, Commissions, and Caffeine Addiction--The Real Truth About Life in Sales by Ken Kupchik
Ken Kupchik is a writer, consultant, and the the creator of Sales Humor, one of the most popular social media accounts in the business world. His articles, videos, and memes combine sales with entertainment, and reach millions of salespeople across the web every week.

The Host's Perspective:
A career in sales is an absurdly difficult and stressful life, and the tortured souls who have gone into it need our pity, our compassion – and gosh darn it – they need some laughs!
That's where this book comes in. It provides chuckles, counseling, good falls, advice, and lots of those “aha” moments that reassure sales people that they're not completely crazy... and they're not alone.
If you're in sales, you may already know of the author – he's the creator of the much-loved and well-established Facebook page called SalesHumor, which has hundreds of thousands of followers.
If you’re in sales and need to laugh to keep from crying, this book is for you. And if you know someone in sales, you should give them this book. They will love you for it!
