Everyone believes he does value selling, but is that really so? We keep falling into the same traps: thinking value in absolute terms, without reference to a next-best competitive offer; listing benefits but stopping short of putting a dollar tag on them; or, very often, believing value is the same for all customers. Stephan's book is all about avoiding the product-centric traps to really become customer-centric. And unlike most of its kind, it is easy to read and loaded with humor. A compelling read
