I recently ordered a vintage copy of The Success System That Never Fails, by W. Clement Stone, and I've been ripping through it for the last couple of days. Stone was a giant in the insurance business, and one can't help but be amazed at his systematic method of achieving such astounding success. Starting out in Chicago, he eventually built the largest insurance empire in the world, and he takes the time to outline exactly how he did it.
Although this book talks extensively about the art of salesmanship, Stone's classic work is a must read for anyone who wants to continually improve in their chosen profession. The book is an easy read, and one comes away with some very good ideas about goal setting, systematic planning, and overcoming obstacles.
