Michael Guld has created a well-written, highly readable roadmap to media sales success. He's captured the art and science of selling. His candor about how he first "learned to fail" before he could "learn to succeed" is refreshing.

After 37 years in this incredible industry, I can honestly say I have never read a better description of what it takes to win. This book will become a "standard issue" for all our sales staff, present and future. I gave my staff copies yesterday and asked they have it read by our trip next week to the RAB.

Michael Guld has taken the complex world of television and radio sales and boiled it down to the nuts-and-bolts essentials. This book should be on the shelf of every sales exec in the industry, from the beginner to the seasoned veteran.
Guld’s book contains a lot of good advice for anybody in any business, but particularly people who “sell air.” When he encourages account execs to know their own business, it’s a remarkably obvious piece of advice that sales people really need to hear. Know what’s on your air! Know the issues in your business! Know the issues in your clients’ businesses! Guld also wisely advises would-be media account execs that it’s good to “sweat the small stuff” on behalf of clients. It’s clear he really knows the business, and knows how to impart his wisdom.

We all cringe when we think back to our early days in sales, and wish we never said much of what we did say. If there had been a book like The Million Dollar Media Rep then, I'm sure all of us could have had easier starts. Michael Guld has written an excellent starter for everyone new to broadcast media sales, and a great refresher for everyone who has been at it for a while and may have started to take the basics for granted. It's also enjoyable and fun to read!
