Director of Corporate Computer and Telecommunication sales 28 Feb. 2011
By MJK - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has topped the first edition by filling in all the left out material and updated all current material to make it the "go to book" for proposal writing. The downloadable forms are excellent and saves me and my staff many hours rather than starting from scratch, and that alone is worth the price of just the book. It is written at a level that all can understand. The ebook is great, for my people are on the road alot and can constantly keep up the material. I can not wait for their web site with more examples and interactions. I see nothing left out of great significance. I have had my entire national sales force purchase this book for their proposal writing on selling our products and services. Most people think that proposal books are only for grants, and the like. But the majority of proposals are from sales people in selling their products to their target audiences. This book excels at that. The American Marketing Association has backed this book at a meeting for the reasons just sited and more. So far, my expections have been far exceeded.

This is a must have book and also to keep in your reference library.

Straightforward and to-the-point, exactly what I need, when I need it. The example budgets, letters, and proposals are worth the price of the book alone.

Format: Paperback
The first edition was excellent and now this 2nd edition is outstanding especially with the book for on the go. All the main wholes are now filled in and with the downloadable forms-- that saves me and my staff time and money. I is airtight with excellent writing and gammar usage and skills. I woud reccomend this book to any one not just in the grant. business, but in the corporate business. The sales and consultants
write grants every day to win over clients, but no major book covers that topic and the business topic at one time that and that is a big market to fill and this book has the material to do the job. The American Marketing Associations gave it a strong backing at one of their meetings, and told members that proposal writing is not just for grants, etc, but for the businesses of today and tommorow and to give them a head start. Find the best books -- not just the simple ones, but the good ones and go with it.

I wish you all good luck on your projectss>
