Negative sales stereotype no. 3,678,478

This one from The New York Times’ review of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s memoir Total Recall.

Conan the Salesman

This book ends with a not-great list of “Arnold’s Rules.” They are basic (“Reps, reps, reps”), boorish (“No matter what you do in life, selling is part of it”), big on denial (“When someone tells you no, you should hear yes”) and only borderline helpful.

Of all the boorish things Schwarzenegger may have done in his life, selling would seem to be the least of them.
