Summary

This book contains reproductions of the famous Cottingley fairies together with a detailed analysis of their authenticity by British writer Author Conan Doyle. The Cottingley fairies were a series of five photographs taken by two young cousins who resided in Cottingley, near Bradford in England. The photographs purportedly captured images of fairies, and gained widespread attention at the time. They were later admitted to be fakes by the girls—except one, which Frances maintained was in fact real and the inspiration or the forgeries. Contents include: “How The Matter Arose”, “The First Published Account--'Strand' Christmas Number, 1920”, “Reception Of The First Photographs”, “The Second Series”, “Observations Of A Clairvoyant In The Cottingley Glen, August 1921”, “Independent Evidence For Fairies”, “Some Subsequent Cases”, “The Theosophic View Of Fairies”, etc. Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle (1859 – 1930) was a British writer most famous for his detective novels that feature Sherlock Holmes. Other notable works by this author include: “The Mystery of Cloomber” (1888) and “Sir Nigel” (1906). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and  expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.

    A twenty-first–century sales philosophy that “gets straight to the point about what works, and what doesn’t work in today’s marketplace” (Kevin Kruse, New York Times-bestselling author of 15 SecretsSuccessful People Know About Time Management, Founder and CEO of LeadX). 
     
    Being successful at sales has nothing to do with “selling.” The best salespeople are the ones who are always curious—not always closing. Succeed Without Selling contains everything a small business owner or sales professional needs to know about what it takes to be successful. From prospecting to discovery to referrals and strategic alliances, it’s all covered. There are even chapters for sales managers, direct sellers, and service providers. 
     
    Succeed Without Selling also includes resources like sample scripts and proposal templates. Anyone who wants to grow their business will find actionable, easy-to-follow information to help them embrace the value of being more interested in others than in making the sale. Succeed Without Selling changes the way readers look at the sales process forever—and stops them from engaging in behaviors that just don’t work.
